Type Semi-Private
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.

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.

Great course.

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.

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!

Great course

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.

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!

A beauty

Always fun to play a course that hosted the big boys. Played from the David Frost bunker but far less well. Great shape. A fun round.

Best in Nola

This Jack Nicklaus course is a gem to play. It has a lot of fun holes that will challenge your thought process while playing. The greens are small and require accurate shotmaking skills with a deft touch on the greens that were fast and true. The staff was very accommodating and friendly and made sure you had a positive experience. I recommend showing up early to take advantage of the practice area it is 5 star on its own.

Great Layout, A Little Under Maintained

Awesome layout with a lot of interesting holes. Greens rolled great and super fast but we’re rock hard. Almost impossible to hold even wedges into them. Looked like they had cut back on maintenance a bit since it’s days hosting the PGA. Still a good deal for the $40 we paid.
