Belle Terre Country Club
Belle Terre Country Club in La Place was carefully carved from the beautiful swamps of southeast Louisiana. The name, translated from French, means "beautiful land," a title that the terrain certainly lives up to. Pete Dye designed the golf course, utilizing the existing water features and mature trees to craft a layout that is both challenging and scenic. The back tees stretch to 6,849 yards, which will challenge the seasoned player while the forward tees make the course accessible for beginners. Water comes into play on 10 holes and there are also several strategically placed bunkers. Belle Terre Country Club boasts a nice mix of holes that will test a variety of different skills, from long holes where you can grip it and rip it to short, tight holes that demand accuracy.

Course condition was a bit off today due to rewiring projects. Normally the course is in very good playing condition.
I play this course often so i am bound to run into off days due to required work projects needed for maintenance
Course was soaked. Pace and conditions were poor because of weather conditions. Cart path only. There were puddles even on some greens. Course probably should have been shut down. I play this course often and it"s usually a great experience.
Course was a tough course.
Enjoyed the golf course. It was tough if you didn’t keep the ball in the fairway. The course was in good shape on greens and fairways. The water holes made you manage the course. This was the first time my friend and I played the course. We definitely decided to come back.
Excellent day for golf. Pace a little slow being a Saturday. Course in pretty good shape considering some previous rain. Couple of greens sandy from repairs but overall a terrific golf day experience. Will be back for another round on Tuesday.
A must play.... will play there a lot more. Going very soon again. Excellent course.
Greens very nice/some fairwat not so
Weather played a fsctor in this but the usual nice fairways on some holrs wwere muddledb.c. withy h ehsass t appeared to be maintenance vehicle tire trscks tearing up the grass.

Front 9 tee boxex in great shape; back 9 could have used cutting. # 16 green never seems to grow in. But enjoyrd my round as usual. Love coming to this course.

Warm Summer Day
Tee off early, it's hot in south Louisiana.Course is in realy good shape. Some of the greens were recently punched and running slow. Great layout always enjoy playing here. Can't wait to go back.
Thank you for taking the time to review our course. You're right it is HOT, so playing early is a great strategy. We're glad you had fun out here can we can't wait to have you back! :)
Play this course all the time. Best fairway conditions I've ever seen there yet. Most geens were very good; a couple had some sandy spots that were being improved. Several back nine holes had their sprinklers on; I tee'd off just before noon. Recommend course to everyone. Enjoy!!!
Great layout but greens need work
Golf Now has some excellent deals at Belle Terre so I try and play this course at least once a month. Due to a hip injury back in March, It had been nearly three months since I played this course. Although the greens at Belle Terre are rarely in great condition they are normally in good enough condition to make playing this course enjoyable. Unfortunately not this time. The greens had very little grass on them and what grass they did have came in patches. The condition of the bunkers, fairways and tee boxes were acceptable. Although some additional sand in the bunkers would be nice. I will not return for even a $20.00 green fee (with cart) until they can get the greens back into good shape.
Thank you for taking the time to review our course. We're disappointed to hear your experience here wasn't great. If you would like to discuss further, please call the pro shop so we can assist you. Thank you again and we appreciate your business.
They let me tee off on 10 in order to avoid being stuck behind a large group. Fairways in good shape, greens need work.
Thank you for reviewing our course. We're sorry to hear we missed the mark on your visit. If you would like to discuss further please contact the proshop and we will assist you promptly. We value you as a customer and we hope we can make this right. Thanks again.
It's been in better shape
Walked in on a Sunday morning and paid $55 to play. Staff was friendly and went about playing the course as I have many times ( Hadn't played it in roughly 1-2 yrs). I was playing with a buddy and was advised there was a foursome and a twosome before me. My buddy and I waited and gave ample time for the others to get off the first tee and we began to play.
On about the 3rd hole, the twosome in front of us was forced to go around the "foursome" which was really 6-7 golfers playing together. My buddy and I stayed behind them for two holes, expecting them to let us play through, they didn't. We skipped around them on #8 and proceeded to play at a good pace until we ran into a log jam of two foursomes and a threesome. The course would greatly benefit from having a Marshall, especially on the weekend.
The front 9 was "OK" and was in fair shape, but the back 9 was rough. 3-4 greens were covered in sand to the point that they were unputtable. (picture included). Yes, I've heard that the "winter was rough" (other courses have greens that are in better shape) and that the greens were "vandalized" which is understandable, but let guests know that.
This course used to be the best in the area and has been down for a while now. Worth a try (best layout in the River Parishes) but I'd give them a call before making the trip to see if the greens issue has been fixed.
Thank you for taking the time to review our course. We are working to fix the issue and yes please call the pro shop with any issues you have. Thanks again.

Greens were the worst I've ever seen them. Give this course some time to heal.
Great layout, friendly staff, rough greens and hard fairways.
Great layout and the course could be spectacular if they had the money to keep it up. Greens were in very rough shape, fairways and tee boxes were very hard. But you go to every hole and think what could be if they had some resources. Hopefully something will happen that will turn the course around. It may be one of the best layouts in the city.
I really enjoyed the round , I never seen another golfer.
They have bad problem with greens a few were sanded to the point of not being able to put , a lot of patches.
The fairways were good.
I really like the course beautiful layout.
