English Turn Golf & Country Club is a Jack Nicklaus design that was crafted in 1988 to host the New Orleans PGA Tour event. Nicklaus designed the course to be enjoyed equally by spectators and golfers, incorporating gallery berms and spectator mounds throughout. This challenging design is known for its undulating greens that will test even the most seasoned players. Each hole has a unique design that combines strategically placed bunkers, including large waste bunkers, and sloping grass swales. There is also carefully sculpted mounding along the edges of the fairways. On top of that, water comes into play on nearly every hole. English Turn's signature hole, the 15th, is a tricky par 5 with an island green but it's the final hole, a par 4 with water all along the left side, that is rumored to be the golf course's toughest.

Go play it! Greens in great shape.

This course will not disappoint.
Driving,chipping, &putting range in great shape. The boxes fairways and greens all in great shape.We played 7/18/19 And could not have had a better time On paper the course looks like a lot lot of water and sand but definitely playable and a lot of fun. We got hung up at the turn due to weather and had a couple cold ones while we waited to hit back nine. Meet the GM, Superintendent, and 2 course reps. couldn't been more accommodating. *****stars
Customer Service was top notch how it should be. Would love to get out there and play again.
BOOK IT it's worth it.

Worth the trip

The hot deal price was excellent and well worth the 3 hour trip to play this course. Even though the club house, which is massive, was closed on Monday the pro shop was open, there was an assistant at the bag drop area and the practice facilities were excellent. The food at the turn was good as well. Since we teed off after noon there was no one behind us most of the round and we were able to play at our own pace and enjoy the round. This course challenges you to hit to specific areas that reward you but miss it and it can be difficult. Very much a skill course over a long ball hitting course. Many memorable holes and excellent scenery. The greens read very true! I’ve played on small greens but these were smaller than expected! Nice but very hard to get onto. Thus the skill. Come in at the right angle and it’s easier. Come in from others and you may have 10 yds of green to hit at the most. Very very fun round!!

Worlds smallest greens??!!

Excellent Nicklaus course routing at English Turn. Greens were quick and so so tiny. Made for a true iron shot shaping test. I feel like the majority of greens were designed for the player with a high fade. Hmmm (Jack?)
Overall excellent condition...two greens on the back nine need a little tlc but otherwise great. There are some fabulous golf holes on this track.
4, 10, 11, 13, 15 and 18 were memorable and fun.
But seriously....why the tiny greens???!!

great course, poor service

The first time I have been to any course without a bag drop attendant. Easter Monday so I guess short staff. Pro shop told me to put our clubs on a cart and go to the first tee when ready, no starter. No Marshall's, no cart person. Course was in decent shape but the storm the previous week hurt a few greens.
Not many there so pace was great.
Greens very fast and true. Although lots of water, pretty friendly driving course. It felt like a high end course going downhill.
I enjoyed the course and would play again if price was right.

Great layout great conditions

Course is always well maintained, tricky layout, gotta stay short of pin high if you have to scramble. Small firm undulating greens pose a great challenge. And $40 on a Monday is a steal, played it for double that over the weekend and still worth the price.

Very Enjoyable Round

This course has wide fairways. Great for someone who is rusty after a long northern winter. The course was in good shape. The greens are long and narrow. So miss long. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I prefer this course over the other course who is currently holding the tour in a few weeks.

This is how it’s done

Great value great staff beautiful course! Replay rate was very good too. I liked the course so much I played it twice!! Everything was up to par and then some. There are not enough adjectives to describe the experience but it felt like a top private course. Having played nearly 300 courses in the last 4 years all over, it takes a lot to impress me.

Great Course and Great Staff

Course was in great shape. Greens rolled true and overall course maintenance was exceptional. Had to stop play for a bit for lightning, but got to recharge and talk to the friendly staff. Very happy with the course. We will be back.
