Playable

Bit of a sketchy area, the course stands out as a nicer part. The greens need work. Mostly straight and flat.

Great features

This course has a great layout without it being too difficult. It’s challenging but still fun for the amateur player.

Love this course but

The greens could really use a rolling...

They were kind of slow and bumpy for being decently short cut. Maybe it was due to the light rain before. But other than that the fairways are in great shape and i love this track for the money

Incredibly Frustrating

We had a confirmed tee time for 7:27 am. We arrived around 7 am and went to the desk to check in. We told the lady our tee time and she said, “No, you don’t have a tee time. Did you book through Golf Now? They should have canceled it because we have an event here today.” She didn’t try to work with us or anything. Just a simple no. First time at this course and I plan to give it another try, but wasn’t a great first impression.

Incredible Value

After years of being underwhelmed by City Park North Course I finally pulled the trigger and visited Joe B.

I’m sure glad I did because I enjoyed my round thoroughly. The staff were helpful and friendly and the course had manicured greens and well maintained sand traps. This is the best value in the New Orleans area and I will be back again and again and again

Slow play

No problem with course, greens were very good.
Marshall's do not do their job.
A threesome held up the course and the Marshall did nothing.
I will not be back on the weekend.

DO NOT PLAY HERE

if you are traveling to new Orleans do not play this course. I played as a single behind a 3 and 2 some Before I even teed off the 4some behind me at the first says hey buddy go lay the back first you are going to hold us up. I told them the desk did not say play back. I played the front went and got a drink at the turn and told the 4 some behind me to go ahead and play then the Marshall pulls up and demands my receipt that the 4 some said I cut in front of them on 10. Showed him my receipt and he says again well they said you didn't pay and pushed in in front of them. mind you I played the front in front of them. The course manager refused to do anything and refused a refund saying not their policy to refund. Do not play here go to Lakewood and Stonebridge a little higher priced but better staff, course and other players.

Nice course hidden in the city

Fairways were manicured and greens were in nice shape. Some spots on a couple greens were it was repaired and not yet taken but overall a really nice gem in the city. Would play here again.
