Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Louisiana
It is was cart path only and the range/practice tee was closed for too much rain, but it was a great course other than that, would love to the lay it again!!
We played only 12 holes and then the rain startet. They had to close the Course because the havey rain. We got a Refund for 9 holes. Thank You.
First Round in FIVE years
Course was great other than no carts being allowed due to recent rains, which slowed down the pace of play. Balls did not roll much, if at all, in the fairways. The greens played very well! Someone in an earlier group must have had lead weights in their shoes and couldn’t lift their feet when walking on the greens. I also heard they will be punching greens in the next couple of weeks, along with chemically burning all the grass and reseeding it, and there is a plan to completely redo all turf in the next year or so. Plan your future trips accordingly.
Midway through on the 10th hole we had to quit. The rain was too intense to hang around. It didn’t appear that it was going to stop soon. If it did the course would have been too wet to play. I should have check with the front desk for a rain check but it was raining so hard I was wet enough. Maybe they will remember me.
1st time at a TPC
First time on a TPC course, and it did NOT disappoint. They were aerating for 2 weeks when I was down there on vacation, and while it wasn't "ideal" conditions, the course was in very good shape.
Staff was beyond friendly and the food was outstanding.
Got a great deal ($79) for playing the course and would do so again at the regular price.
Thank you for a great initial TPC experience!!!
I thought the price was s little high but overall the course is in great condition. I always seem to play well there I played a course in Houston and their carts are awesome. Behind the the drivers side they had a ball and club cleaner. Also in the cart are 2 USB ports to charge your electronics. Cell phone, tablet etc. TPC Avondale could use upgraded carts.
Played right after the zurich open, course was in fantastic shape.
On the surface, there are a lot of reasons to be optimistic about TPC Louisiana: it carries the TPC label, it’s a PGA Tour stop, it’s a Pete Dye Design, and until a few years ago it was considered a Top 100 track.
But the course simply doesn’t live up that billing. Aside from three or four interesting holes, the course is forgettable. You see the same bunkers running up the sides of fairways over and over again. You see tiny, oddly shaped greenside bunkers that serve no obvious purpose. The condition of the course was fine, but nowhere close to conditions befitting a $200+ green fee. Nearly every bunker on the course was running low on sand, which made it nearly impossible to slide a wedge underneath a ball.
If the course were billed as a muni (and priced like one), then people would rave about it. But that’s not the standard that it’s priced at. And that standard goes unmet. I don’t expect to return.
Best Public Play in the Area
I led a buddies trip to New Orleans in late March and we played 4 of the best reviewed area courses. This was our favorite.
Amenities and conditioning were both excellent, and what you'd expect from a TPC course.
The layout is good, but it is not bucket-list, stick in your mind great.
If you pay full price ($200+) you may be disappointed, because while this is a very nice golf course, it is not on the level of a Top 100 course or other destination course. We got discounted rates at the last minute for two different rounds (canceling our previously booked, much more expensive tee times in the process), and at less than $100, it is an excellent value. I based my value ranking on the rack rates.
Great Course and challenging layout
Played the course two consecutive days. Both days were chilly in the morning. The second day the wind picked up and the course became much more challenging in the windy conditions. However, the course is great and getting in very nice condition. The course is being set up with the Zurich Classic golf tournament so it was cart path only which was a challenge, because NONE of the sprinkler heads have yardage indicators and the only yardage markers are on the cart paths as well as a 150 yard post. The course is fun, fair and challenging.
Another Great TPC
I’ve played a few TPC courses before and this one did not disappoint. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable from start to finish. Unfortunately the course was cart path only, which I wasn’t told until I arrived, but didn’t take much away from the experience. Would definitely play again if I return to the NOLA area.
Worth the trip
The course was in good shape despite the recent freezing temps. The staff was incredible and made the 6 1/2 hour drive well worth the trip.
Good for Winter Golf
The course was really fun and challenging to play. I would love to play it once it greens up again after Winter, since the dormant grass makes crisp contact a challenge. A really good value for a high-end course and it was one of the highlights of my trip.
Terrible Booking Policy
Let me start by saying, I booked this tee time 5 days out and the forecasted weather was 52 and sunny. Being in from out of town we wanted to play the P Dye TPC course and did not mind paying a premium. The 48 hour cancellation policy is where my issue lies. We woke up to low 40's and 20-25 mph winds. I called the course and was told if I did not show for the tee time I would be charged for the entire group ($141 per player). Once we got to the course we were 2 of maybe 4 groups on the course that day. The bermuda was dormant and there was maintenance being done on the sprinkler system for the upcoming PGA event. Greens rolled true and I could see the course being mint on a great day. More than anything I was put off by being forced to play in absolute awful weather. Paying $141 you should not have to wait for an excavator to make his way across the fairway with no regard to your group (literally took 12 minutes for him to clear) as well as sprinklers being turned on and tested while you are playing in 40 degree weather. This is the first review I have ever written, but I truly feel golf is a weather dependent sport and there should be some leniency on the cancellation policy if weather is the issue. At the very least give us a $75 prorated price for the condition of the course that day. I recommend being very cautious when booking ahead of time if weather is up in the air.
I was really happy with the course. They had massive rain storms during the week we played, but the course was still in great condition (though it was cart path only). There are certainly some challenging holes, but still very playable to matures. The only disappointment we had was we didn't see a gator! We were hoping to see one (from a distance only) but were unlucky.
