Grand Ridge Golf Club is tucked away in the swamplands of St. Charles Parish, La. This scenic course is dappled with towering cypress trees and ancient oaks draped in moss. There are enough challenges on the golf course to keep the beautiful backdrop from being too distracting though. Water hazards come into play on 10 holes and the tight fairways are lined with trees. You'll need to have accurate drives in order to put you in a good position for the approach to the equally challenging greens. The golf course is a fair test that is player friendly enough to appeal to low and high handicappers alike. Grand Ridge Golf Club's signature hole is the par-5 15th. This tough 515-yard hole starts off with a tee shot over a pond up a narrow, tree-lined fairway.

The fairways and tee boxes were in poor condition, the course needs some attention. The greens were not to bad but could also Use a bit of work. Over all the layout of the course was decent and presented a good challenge throughout the round.

Three buddies and I just wanted to get a round in during the holiday weekend and the course was above and beyond what we expected for the price. 90% of the tee boxes and greens were in pretty great shape even with a coupe days rain ahead of our play date. Once the drainage and sand trap construction of this course is complete I think this course will be added to my regular courses visited. There is also a irons only driving range at this location. Overall had a great time.

I’ve seen some of the whining about this course and don’t get it. Yes, the fairways need a bit of work, and there is drainage improvement on going, but the course is beautiful and peaceful. Incredibly scenic place and, unlike some other clubs, the local folks were busy about the clubhouse decorating and whatnot. Everyone I met was friendly and helpful. Only negative is how many balls I lost in the water!!! That’s on me of course! Definitely worth the drive. I’ll be back there tomorrow for another round.

I have been playing Grande Ridge for several years now. It is usually never crowded in the afternoon and the some of the narrow fairways are quite challenging.

The course has had some drainage work done lately that was badly needed. I will continue to play there as it is one of the best deals in the New Orleans area.

Excellent! I used to belong to this course when I lived in the Nola area before Hurricane Katrina. Everything came back to me! Great layout, course was in great shape and the greens are as good as I remember. I would have given excellent all the way, but the sand traps are under repair. When they finish with the traps this course will be excellent all the way around! I would recommend this hidden gem again!

The course is laid out nicely. Some of the greens are in bad shape but they are working on them to make them better, so I can live with that. They are working on holes 3 and 4 putting in drain lines or something like that. All and all a good course. If you are long and straight off the box this is the course for you.

The course was well layed out and the staff was super friendly. But it seemed like the course needed a cut. The fairways were pretty rough. Sand traps were overgrown. A lot of puddles. It could be a really nice course if it had alittle more TLC. But it wasn't horrible. I will go back. Food was good as well at the restaurant.

Although I don't usually review golf courses, I'll make an exception in this case. The course was in terrible condition the $20 I paid to play was too much. I would call it a goat ranch but I think goat ranches deserve more respect. Greens were in poor condition with numerous bare spots. Bunker's had as much grass in them as the fairways. Overall a very disappointing day.

While the layout is great the condition of the fairways and greens left a lot to be desired. The grass on the fairways was sparse and in some cases it was gone. Some of the greens were fine but on others as much as 25% was sandy splotches. In spite of this it was an enjoyable round of golf. All of the staff members were extremely friendly.
