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 improvements have increased overall play experience. Improvements on drainage the most obvious. Fairways could use some additional grass but that should come in with summer. Greens were fine ---hard and mostly fast. The best course in the area. Play there every other week; would play weekly if i could.

Greens were the nicest I’ve seen them in a long time. There have been some good changes going into the course and it can only get better. The $18 green fees are a steal.

Have played Belle Terre quite a few times now and they send to get the course in better shape each time. The greens are on great shape and each hole has it's own challenges. Temp was in the 40's and very windy but course played like a nice summer day. Staff was great and guys in the pro shop are very informative and helpful. Can't wait to go back for another round.

The course has a great layout but they are going thru some construction at the moment. Once that is done and they get a few of the greens back into good shape it will be a excellent course. Stan in the club house is top notch and always ready to help. Driving range is in good shape.

The front nine was closed because of the conditions of thier greens, so we had to play the back nine twice. If the condition of the greens on the back nine were any indication, it will be MONTHS before the course is playable. The greens were terrible. I won't be back anytime soon

This is an extremely nice course, only thing is that they are undergoing construction at the moment and some of the tee boxes are a little sketchy, also some of the greens are being airrated and not best as of yet. I assume when they are finished with it all that place will be in supurb shape. I can't wait !!!!! Event with all that, it's still a nice place to play a great round of golf !!!!

I have played this course many times and have always been pleased.

On today's round, i expected more of a challenge due to days of rain (usually drains well) and management' investing in continuously improving the course; hence, some construction on a couple of holes. Yet there was still lots of good golf to be had. Fairways cut well with manageable rough. Approaches and greens well maintained; greens were dry and in excellent shape in spite of previous weather. Putts rolled true.

Any other time I would be giving an EXCELLENT rating.

As always, the staff is great and helpful.

The clubhouse has been renovated; food and service are good.

While out on the course the cart girl was there often with great cold drinks and power snacks.

This is easily the best course in the area and worth the short drive i make once or twice a week from New Orleans.

Recommend you check it out for yourself as you will enjoy the experience. Tell George or Stan that Hal highly recommended you for a great golf outing.

Belle Terre touts itself as a Pete Dye design. If you've ever played a Dye course, you might find this one to be a bit different from the others you've played. Like so many other South Louisiana courses, Belle Terre is downright swampy, and it might be worth noting that as you approach a water hazard on this course, you might want to look 2 or 3 times for alligators and snakes. I have seen both out there.

This course is located in Laplace, Louisiana, about 35-40 minutes west of downtown New Orleans on I-10. It's definitely out of the way, and as such is more a locals course than a tourist destination.

It's two nines both emanate from right in front of the clubhouse and make outward turning loops through neighborhoods. The course isn't long, topping out at 6849 yards. The breeze off Lakes Maurepas and Pontchartrain can be daunting on the northern facing holes.

The signature holes on the course are the 183 yard par 3 5th hole, which seems to simply be an oasis in the marsh, and the 448 yard par 4 17th, which features a bit of everything - water in the forms of ponds and a canal running across the fairway, as well as tough bunkering.

It's a bit outside of the easy access of the city so it's not likely on many people's radar. And while it was recently renovated (green complexes upgraded for better roll and drainage) it remains just maybe a slight notch above an average course - rough edges, housing, not much for beauty. But a good play nonetheless!
