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.

Course was so nice for so long and now it has really gotten bad the last year. We played on a Friday during July 4th week and the fairways were terrible. Tall patchy grass and you couldn’t see where the fairway or rough was. Really sad

The course is very well maintained. The greens were a little slow and could have been cut and some of the tee boxes need some attention but other than that, we enjoyed a very relaxing 18 holes.

If it is off cart path , bring some towels cause it is super wet. I will need to come back when it is dry. Water in the fairways made for a long wet muddy round.

Barely got through the front nine when a thunderstorm forced us to seek shelter. The course is beautiful. Greens are in good condition; some in great condition. It was not crowded on this Sunday so it was nice to take our time and practice for an upcoming tournament.

It's an easy drive from New Orleans to Metairie to Luling -- and worth the drive.

I got a great deal on Golf now so I figured I would make the trek from New Orleans and try out the course. Overall the course was fun to play and you can tell they are trying to improve the problem areas. The greens are extremely consistent and well maintained. They are a tad slow but the ball rolls true and I didn't notice any bad spots on any green through all 18 holes. The problem areas are the tee boxes and the fairways. I noticed several tee boxes where new grass was planted and being regrown so I could see that being improved pretty soon but the fairways will likely be another year or so before I could imagine them being fully repaired. Overall I enjoyed the round. The course is fairly tight in spots as its tucked in a neighborhood but I would definitely play the course again.

When I was signing in at pro shop a staff member (who was not waiting on us ) ask how much did GOLFNOW charge us after he heared we booked online. Which I found was very strange. Later that same guy came out to confront us about going around and play again. When we first started, we were playing #2 when the mowers were cutting the greens and asked us if we could play the back nine first not wanting to hold them up we did . So after 18 we started on the front again when Mr. Back in time came out. As a 60yr old black man I felt like we weren’t all that welcome. Will not be going back.

Grand ridge is a cool course to play

Greens were awesome

But fairways were very hard with literally no grass on most of them.

Shame cause this course could be great cause the staff are pretty friendly, and overall nice club for the price, just tough if you’re looking for lush fairways

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.

Somebody is putting money into this course. Greens were great. New bunkers and grass around some holes. Challenging course with narrow fairways and water in spots. Will play again.

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.
