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.

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.

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.

We have played English Turn twice this trip. The staff go above and beyond to treat you right(especially Randy in the bar and restaurant very entertaining). The course layout is very enjoyable and challenging. The starter allowed us to start early ahead of a large group and never saw another golfer ahead till the 14th hole. Wonderful experience!

Started out with a nice warm up session at their practice area. Had grass tees, chipping, sand and putting greens. All in excellent condition, a great way to start your day. Course was in real good shape. Greens were a little slow. Fairways were in real good shape. They can use more distance markers on the course. You definitely need a range finder for accuracy. Staff was excellent. the cart person, pro shop staff and superintendent all were very nice and super helpful.

I will definitely go back the next time I am in town.

A very traditional Jack Nicklaus layout that you need to play a couple of times to get a grasp on where to place your shots. The greens and course conditions were in great condition for this time of year. The cart guys were awesome and they did have a beverage cart which is always nice. Be sure to pick the right set of tees it will make your round more enjoyable. I will be back for another round for sure.

We were involved in a winter special, so the course we crowded, with so slower than normal play.
