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.

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.
