Bayou Oaks City Park North Course
Golf has been played at City Park since 1902 when the nine-hole New Orleans Golf Club opened. At the time it was one of only 80 golf courses in the country. There were four 18-hole courses at the complex before it was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The North Course was rebuilt in 2009 and now there is also a 36-hole mini-golf complex. The course is just over 5,400 yards from the back tees and features water on eight holes. Proper club selection is the key to scoring well on this layout. The golf course is popular among both locals and visitors because it's not only player friendly enough to accommodate all skill levels but its location is also easily accessible from anywhere in New Orleans. The affordable rates make it even more appealing and there's also a 74-stall driving range.

NEES quite a bit of work
I play this course frequently. Enjoying it for practice but the short chipping really sucks! The work that's needed is neglected because of the management across the street. They treat the workers poor and neglect having any real serious attention. What can anyone say. The so called big shot management is never available to discuss anything whatsoever. But "This is America!" But I do enjoy the workers on this coarse. And it is a nice coarse to play practice on.
Poor golf Etiquette
Course does a poor job of maintaining pace of play. Allowed a group of 6 and a foursome with a walker on consecutive holes plus another group of 6 a couple holes ahead, which the groups couldn’t play either. Nobody from the course came out to tell them to speed up.
Just blow this up, and restart from scratch. Awful. Just awful.
Only if you can't afford someplace else.
I'm a typical budget-conscious muni golfer who's seen a lot of cheaper courses, and this may be one of the worst. The greens were so sandy, rough and sloooooooooow that a couple of them should have had bunker rakes next to them. The bunkers on the other hand had so little sand that it was best to play a clean-contact pitch out of them. On the plus side, the weather was great, and I got paired up with a couple local girls who were a real pleasure to play with. The carts are surprisingly nice, too, complete with GPS.
Course is in good shape and well maintained. Staff was friendly. Carts have gps and tv screen to give you yardage.mostly par 4s and a lot of par 3s. But still challenging enough to play a good game. For an old course it’s a nice course. Will play it again and would recommend to friends.
Very poor greens
You get what you pay for. Nice spot for a beginner. For those with a little more experience and money, play the south.
Not worth it
Me and my friend played here the other day (both juniors). We were gonna rent a cart and share it. They wouldn't let share a cart, so they charge us 15 bucks each plus a green fee. This rule was apparently established yesterday. Hasn't really rained in about 5 days, so no excuse for bad conditions. Fairway were crazy muddy, huge piles of grass clippings everywhere, mud on greens, and mud in bunkers. Kind and pathetic. The greens were basically unplayable, with weeds everywhere. Not worth the 25 bucks. If you're in new orleans go play joe bartholomew.
did not get to play. HEAVY RAIN. Waiting on refund. Will rebook thru GolfNow next week.
Bought a $15 tee time; that is a walking fee.. add another 15/ person for a cart.
Not bad still though right...?
There is no one organizing anything at this course. There were a 4some, 4some, one guy on his own, my twosome, and a foursome behind me all trying to tee off at the same exact time.
Whoever cuts the course either hates oglf or doesn't understand that leaving huge mudtracks in the fairway don't make for a good time. Course doesn't drain... they stopped bothering to pick up the huge clumps of grass clippings, smells like swamp gas...
It is not pleasant.
Basic with no frills
I'll start by saying I love golf. So being able to play honey course had any time is better than not playing at all. They have a decent driving range but the course leaves a lot to be desired. It is a golf course but it is in need of quite a few repairs. It is relatively flat with only a few hazards such as bunkers and water to challenge you. The greens were slow and Shaggy. The Golf Course was pretty saturated due to a lot of rain in the area. That may cause issues with being able to get Workers out on the course and mow the greens. When I'm in the area I will play it again to give it another review.
course not to play
They advertise a par 72 but in actuality it's only a par 63/64. They only have 1 par 5 and the rest par 3's and 4's. Not even a full golf course but yet they charge full price. I wouldn't play they ever again. Even if they paid me. The north course is a JOKE.
I like great golf courses but above all I like Golf.... On this Sunday afternoon I played with my wife who is beginning and this course was fitting our purpose.
The weather was amazing and the pace was average. The greens are finally back which took forever but they are now playable. The Tees need work and the fairways are OK nothing more or less than expected for a $22 round of golf.
Easy and convenient to the French Quarter.
Not bad for price
I have played this course regularly for years. The new greens are a welcomed addition.
Pace of play was extremely slow , Marshall was no where to be found on the course but he was in the hazard looking for lost balls.I would come back and play again though but price should be lower than 38.00 plus tax
Fun if you know what to expect...
Played Saturday afternoon and got a great deal. Was expecting a long round but surprisingly wasn't overly crowded. Was such a great deal that couldn't expect too much, we had a great time. I do wish the greens were cut lower and were faster and truer (they are very slow, VERY). That's my only gripe, but we did have a great time. Saw a little gator on 17 too. That was pretty cool.
First and foremost we should have been informed that the regular greens were not playable . The fairways are in pitiful condition. No grass thru out course. Needs complete overhaul. Would love to promote city park golf but definite attention is needed.
The course is obviously undergoing some changes. The layout was horrible, most holes were less than 150 yards and what was supposed to be the greens were nothing more than a 10 or 15 foot area with a hole in the middle. It looks like they just took a spot on the fairway and decided to put a hole in it. To be fair, they are building a PGA course across the street and are supposed to overhaul this course in 2017. In the meantime, I don't intend to play it again
Literally can't believe they have the audacity to call this dump a golf course.
