Jokers

The course was fine. It was a mud puddle, but that's nobody's fault. The staff is the reason why we will not play this course again on our next Lake Charles trip. The pro was in his office being a jerk to his employees right in front of us. Which they say happens frequently. It took 30 minutes to get a hot dog at the turn (it was really good by the way). We made it to the 13th hole before we got so sick of the course members driving through the hole we were playing that we just left. Don't pay full price, get the Golf Now Hot Deal.

Green Aeration

Great course, usually costs $40 for a twilight round but since the greens have been aerated the past week it was only $25. For $25 this course is worth playing on aerated greens. You will not find better fairways, bunkers, etc. One of the nicest courses in Louisiana year around. Have played dozens of times and do not plan to stop. Always challenging, always a good time.

The guy in the pro shop was bad. He was rude and thought he was better than everyone. The guys behind us thought the same thing too. We just left because of him

Great Gray Plantation Course is a Winner!

Highly suggest this course as must play if you're in Lake Charles. It's about 4-5 miles south of Golden Nugget Casino in a masterplanned community . Fairways/greens/design all above parmuch more fun than Contraband Bayou at l'Auberge. Kosati Pines in Kinder another great/fun course I've played several times.

Golfing through the Bayou!

We had a blast playing Gray Plantation. The course is in great shape and the greens roll true. Some very interesting holes, including a ridiculous par 5 with split fairways and trouble absolutely everywhere. Many of the holes on the back side run along the Bayou. We played twilight which made for an incredibly unique round of sunset golf in quite the setting. The people in the pro shop were full of southern hospitality (even to us New Yorkers). I loved everything about this place! Bring bug spray!!! The mosquitos out there are unlike anything I've ever experienced. Twilight golf is a battle against those little suckers.

Save Money

My bride and I played at our own pace after being greeted by friendly staff. Golf, cart and range balls for two came in at the $100 mark and was a value buy. Cold "Stellas" complemented a really good burger and sweet potato fries, all served cheerfully by Amy. We finished in about 3.5 hours, but the total time away from the casino was six hours--money saved! We will play there again.

Excellent layout. Hit every club in bag.

In spite of excessive rain, course was very playable. Cart trail only. Greens had been recently punched, but recovering nicely. Had never played the course, and requested playing with someone. A single did show up, was not told by clubhouse I was interested. Other than that, very enjoyable. Looking forward to playing again.

Best Course in Louisiana!!

I had the thrill of playing Gray Plantation this past Friday and every part of it was fantastic. The staff was friendly and helpful, the course was in fabulous condition, and the layout was challenging but very playable and fun for a group of us that ranged from 9 - 25 handicaps. I've played TPC in New Orleans and Coushatta's course and this is better than both overall! Don't miss this course!!! Taylor Parker, Houston TX

A scenic, fun course that rivals Contraband Bayou

In Lake Charles golf, options 1a and 1b, respectively are Contraband Bayou and Gray Plantation. Both are really scenic, well-conditioned and a lot of fun to play. Which is better? It's tough to say. Gray Plantation has some really nice marsh holes that bring the bayou to life, though Contraband Bayou's service and amenities, plus the fact there is no real estate on the course, might give it the inside track. Regardless, be sure to pair the two on a golf and gaming (or fishing) weekend to Lake Charles and you won't be disappointed.

Amazing course!!!

If you love the game of Golf and want to be challenged right from the first tee box, then this is your course. This course has beautiful rolling hills, well placed sand bunkers and water on nearly every hole. It is an iron lovers dream with green side bunkers and water near most of the greens, you have to develop a special touch with your irons and your wedges to get the most out of the experience. The scenery near the course is as good as the course itself. The tranquil atmosphere and the quiet, beautiful course will never provide a lifetime of great golf experiences for all who play. Enjoy!!!

the course is both challenging and beautiful.

Always a fun and challenges you game. You need to plan out yohr attack on many holes with island greens and lots of water and sand to play around. I wk uld and do recommend this course to thes scratch llayer as well as the ones just starting to play golf. It does take course management to shot a good score

A thinking-man's course with many decisions to be made. Very fun to play

I had gotten a peek at the course while visiting some family over the years, but I never had a chance to play it. I was finally able to play it this weekend with a friend, and it was a very nice experience. Checking in was smooth, and the range/practice green were nice. The starter gave us some advice on a particular hole that trips up most first-timers-it was good advice. The course offers many choices for someone who drives the ball moderately long off the tee. I always enjoy a course that makes you think and gives you options. The fairways and greens were in great shape. The greens were fast, but not obscenely so. They rolled very true also. The in-cart GPS and pin sheet were helpful. One minor complaint is that two of the par 3s had drop areas, but these were not well marked. We almost missed one completely. A note on the scorecard or a mention by the starter would remedy this. Overall the experience was excellent, and I can heartily recommend Gray Plantation to anyone looking for a beautiful setting at a reasonable price.

Fabulous Course

It's no wonder that this course is rated in the top 100 courses according to ESPN. It is absolutely fabulous and quite challenging when played from the 'tips'. I would recommend this course to all simply because of the nature and natural beauty of the course. However, the 20 MPH north wind made for a bit of fun on many of the holes.
