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.

ET

I am shocked at the players as there appears to be a rush to play and finish and not only they will drive the ball through you but they will not ask for permission to pass
I met bad temper and somebody who scolded me because I made the mistake of driving close but not on the greens
The person yelled and told me that he was a member and that he would not allow destruction of his golf course as he is already entitled by the money he pays
The greens are in terrible condition too
I would not play again in that course
I grew up playing fantastic courses and I am not use of this discord on the course
Overall the course is not well attended either

Not fair to rate the course at this time.

The course was in pretty bad shape, but I don't think it's fair to rate it at this time. It's been raining quite a bit and I was told by one of the grounds crew that they were having trouble with multiple pieces of equipment. I could see where it could be an interesting and beautiful course, but I didn't find a good value today. I will give the course another chance before I move on.

Underrated.

This course is not talked about enough in the New Orleans area. A Country Club allowing guests to come play at these rates is awesome. The practice facilities provide all that you need to warm up and the course is beautiful. Narrow fairways and greens will keep you on your toes out here!

Suprised

I am surprised they let this course go down like this.

I was surprised at how brown the greens were.

I was surprised at how poor the course condition was even though it had not rained.

Sand traps were mud and some had no sand at all.

Very disappointing

I can’t understate how bad the course conditions are at this time! Tee boxes (Blue tees) looked like they hadn’t been moved in weeks. The fairways to be fair where good (very thin) but good. However most importantly the greens were literally dead in a lot of spots( not dormant). At best I would pay $30 to play only because the layout is so cool. Tons of options around the greens.

Interesting

Greens were awful.
For some reason they have lost their greens within a month.
I played there last month and the greens were pretty green in color.
Now they are browning all over.
other than the greens everything was ok, course was a little wet.
The pace of play was very very very slow for some reason

Great Course Needs Better Yardage Markers

Barley any yardage markers..only on drain covers in middle of fairway..doesn't help when its wet/freshly mowed..I'd suggest putting in stakes on the edge of the fairway. Other than that..great course
