Oakbourne CC Review

Oakbourne located in Lafayette, Louisiana Is consistently rated in the top five in the state. It is an original Dick Wilson design featuring 18 holes of non-residential parkland golf. It is an excellent walking course with closely adjacent greens and tees. Unusual for South Louisiana is an elevation change due to the Coteau Ridge running through the course creating an upper and lower section. The Miniverde ultra dwarf Bermuda greens feature a number of undulations typically framed by high flashed bunkers. Recent tree removal efforts (which I hope will.continue) have greatly improved playability and turf conditions. This is a shotmakers course and always a challenge despite not being overly long - 7000 yds from the tips.

The course was home to the Cajun Classic PGA tournament In the 1950’s and 60’s and was played by luminaries including Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. Louisiana native and PGA Championship winner Lionel Hebert was a long time member and resident touring professional.

This is a stock membership private country club. It is well worth a play if in the area.
