A modest course for good value.

Jerry Tim Brooks Golf Course (formerly Lakeside Park GC) is a small municipal 9-hole course crammed into a small plot of very hilly land just west of downtown Shreveport. Despite obvious signs of being underfunded by the city, the overworked staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

WARNING: THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS! There is very little flat ground anywhere on the course, and several holes require the golfer to hit up a steep slope or a blind hill. A small creek runs through the western edge of the course grounds, providing ample opportunity to lose balls, especially when teeing off the par-4 (women's par 5) 3rd hole, where a 200 yard straight drive will drop directly into the middle of the gully. Fairways are narrow and tree-flanked, but there is little in the way of high rough to worry about. The greens are very small and have a variety of undulations which make judging putts a distinct challenge.

I played it in mid-March, before spring grass had been planted. The greens were almost entirely moss-covered and of highly unpredictable speeds. Aside from the greens the course was reasonably well maintained- much better than many private courses I've played on.

In the end the course was more difficult than my double-bogey-on-flat-ground game could handle, but for those with a bit more skill than myself, this little treasure might be an interesting (and economical) way to pass an afternoon.

Awful

I was in town visiting a friend who had just moved to the area and we both are advid users of the app golfnow app. There was only one course available and this course didn't look well maintained. We booked 18 holes but the course is only a 9 hole course. Not to mention there was no staff available to answer our calls regarding our tee time. GolfNow should take this course off their app. We found there are many more options but they aren't on golf now.
