This is my first time ever reviewing anything online. Drove an hour and a half to get there, checked in, asked where the first tee box was and the girl working told me she didn’t know. I found it and started playing. It hasn’t rained in a week and there’s mud everywhere. Zero grass on the fairways and tee boxes, long grass makes the greens impossibly slow. The layout is the only good thing about the golf course..6 par threes, 6 par fours and 6 par fives. Stay home and play your local municipal course. If you find yourself in Zachary, play Beaver Creek. The greens are fantastic right now.

The greens were over watered and very slow, but on good condition. The balls all plugged around the greens. The fairways and rough was in excellent condition. Course has recovered well from floods last year. The upgrades on the clubhouse was excellent. Staff are friendly and professional.

For the 2nd week in a row the greens have been grossly overwatered and not mowed . This made the greens horribly slow and the aprons so wet you couldn't walk up.

We understand it's tough managing a golf course, but somebody please do something to help out. The course used to be down right magic, but somebody faltered along the way. The greens & bunkers are bad. There is no need for rough grass since there is this high pompus grass that swallows balls up. The one plus of the course is Hailey & Aron. Both are gorgeous.

I have played this course a lot over the years and it is a challenging layout and is in pretty good shape. Unique layout with 6 par 4's, 6 par 5's, and 6 par 3's. Only issue is that some of the sand traps need more sand in them.

I booked a Hot Deal for $12 per head and I usually pay $40-$50 per regular price.

Condition has deteriorated severely in the last 6-9 months. See below:

- Closed the driving range, so no practice area

- greens were in poor condition and about 5 were aerated and I wasn't told.

- Fairways had weeds growing

- No pro shop

It's off my Baton Rouge rotation for sure.

Most fairways in pretty good condition...some greens still suffering from fungus apparently although getting a lot better. I'm sure the very wet weather going back to the big flood last August hit the turf pretty hard. Glad to see the greens making a comeback though! A little more fungicide and TLC will likely do wonders. I don't like the lack of a practice range to warm up but I have always loved the course layout. Well except for #12 hole which usually destroys my back nine score hahaha...the staff is always friendly and the manager is a good guy as well. I usually play at least 1-2 times per month here. Thank you!

I've played Copper Mill before and loved the layout. Yesterday I drove an hour and a half to play only to find the course almost unplayable. Tee boxes and fairways were very poor with very little grass. The greens were beyond bad....patchy bits of grass, surrounded by sand....no way to putt. We just picked up once on the green. Very upset to have paid good money and never told about the condition of the course. GolfNow should not promote this course or offer it for play.

I thought that the layout was great with a lot of real good holes. Was disappointed in the greens. They either have a fungus or others very heavy with a weed. Would love to play it again if they get the green issues resolved.

I usually really enjoy Copper Mill but this time the course conditions were terrible. Greens were probably the worst I've ever played on. They need to get them fixed ASAP. I'll go back, but it'll be a while first.

The staff was outstanding and very helpful. However, the greens were below average, and the pace of play was interrupted by college kids playing slowly and driving on the greens. I do not believe this course is worthy be included on the Audubon Golf Trail.

I was eager to play Copper Mill, which is an Audubon Trail course. However, the course conditions were well below the Audubon Trail standards. Many or most of the traps lacked sand and were rock hard. The wind made it feel like a links test, but the course was soft around the greens, preventing you from playing the ball low. The greens were the major obstacle. They could not be putted, as they were bumpy, thin or bare and could not provide a consistent roll. I was very disappointed.

So in reading the most recent reviews it appears to me that some of these people dont take into account the huge flood that was experienced in this area, nor do they understand winter conditions on golf courses. I spoke with the GM and he explained to me that they are redoing the entire club house and cart barn so it is definitely not a downhill decline as someone said. I play all over the area, and the 6/6/6 hole layout at Copper Mill is hands down my favorite to play. You can really score out here, or if your hitting it bad you can put up a big number. Overall course is beautiful, and would absolutely recommend giving it a go if you haven't.

club was short on carts; had to wait 40 mins for a cart. the bar doubles as the pro shop now. bad, bad idea... most greens were in bad shape but a nice roll otherwise on the better greens. round was shortened by rain but we would've finished and been on our way home had a cart been available on time. Several foursomes had multiple singles in carts in the same group. dress code wasn't enforced; jeans and non-collared shirts on the course. the place is going downhill. I have vendors visiting next month and will consider another course.
