English Turn Golf & Country Club
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.

I started as a single but I paired up with a 2some. I had a great time even though I didn’t have my best day. Nice layout. I used every club in the bag. Greens are small but fun.
You will enjoy your round! Staff is exceptional. Course we'll maintained.
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. Challenging target golf. Staff was great. Worth the price in every way. Would definitely return.
Excellent Jack Nicklaus Design with Small Greens
Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Despite heavy rain the day before and cart path only the course was very playable. Greens were excellent, putted true and not nearly as curvy as a typical Jack Nicklaus designs. Good mix of long and short holes. The island green 15 was fun. Lots of bunkers add to the challenge.
Only drawback is on Monday the course is open but the clubhouse closed.
Very noisy with litany of distractions
I experienced a first today. On the 10th tee I encountered a drone. It hovered over me on the tee. I waived it off but the operator wouldn't pull back. It actually came closer. It followed me all the way down the fairway and hovered over my next shot. I tried to wave it off again. I started calling the pro shop but never got answer. I waited 10 minutes on the fairway until the battery died and it returned to the operator. The operator was in the White House next to the 10th green. I placed more calls to the clubhouse but no one
Ever answered. I left a message on the machine to explain the encounter and my number. I asked for a return call but it never happened. Needless to say I was annoyed and frustrated after the noisy drone encounter. On more than one tee box the grounds crew ran the mowers on the tee box right behind me. They never stopped for my tee shot. I've never had that happen on a course that I can recall, especially one that is supposed t be one of the top courses in the area.
Monday morning golf
Had a great time playing on this superb course. Very forgiving. Wish the clubhouse were open.
English Turn is a great course. The greens are true but are very small so your approach shot better be spot on. This is one course as well as with other courses where course management comes into play.
Beautiful and difficult course
We could have asked for a nicer course. Lots of water and tiny greens.
Good course but wasn’t amazed
The course was fine, but nothing special. $60 for rental clubs is way too much!!! The clubs weren’t top of the line and that did not include any golf balls.
What a Gem!
Such a beautiful piece of land surrounded by gorgeous homes (none are really reachable from the course). I played after a short, heavy rain and the course could not have been any more perfect. Tee to green was meticulously manicured. Greens had been recently sanded, yet there was no loss of speed (fast) and still rolled true. I was lucky and had it to myself, so played 18 in 2.5 hours. 10/10 would do again!
Course was in great condition. Layout was good. I couldn't afford to play this course if I didn't get a great deal from golfnow.
Great course, value and conditions. Former PGA venue. Friendly people , a fun round.
My driver broke, staff let me borrow without any charge, which I was able to play whole round of golf without worries. Thank you.
Beautiful course. Wide fairways, can't get in much trouble if you can hit it halfway straight. Water on almost every hole. Thought the sand traps would have better sand in them for the type of course it is, but they were ok. Very friendly staff, very helpfull. The club house was closed the day we played, and there's no beverage cart on the course, but plenty of water jugs. Overall we had a good round and would definitely come back next tome we're down here.
Completely blown away by the quality of their course here at English turn. Truly incredible
Great Course and Golf Now Deal!
My group and played English Turn after playing the TPC. The folks at ET were fantastic and the course was fantastic, made even better by the great Golf Now deal. Course condition was very good, but a few greens had some brown spots. We had the course to ourselves on a Saturday afternoon after a brief rain shower. The course was very well laid out. It has the right mix of challenge to keep your head in the game but is open and fair enough to keep it fun. The topography in the LA delta is pretty flat, but the design keeps things interesting. Great course and great staff!
