Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Louisiana
The course was in great condition even with all the heat. The fish smell from the fish kill in the ponds was bad. Overall great course and will play again.
Great day of golf
Course was in great shape a few hard spots in the fairway. Greens putted true, teamed up with great guys. A good Sunday afternoon
Worst Outing Ever!
Without a doubt, this was the most aweful golf outing I have ever had. There were only 2 good things to note. The young man in the pro shop was excellent; hats off to The Island as he is a true asset (my apologies for not remembering his name). The only other good thing about this day was the perfect weather.
I have seen this course in much better shape before. As a matter of fact, while on the range (it was ok at best), I heard one "member" tell another that they were lucky to be members because if they had to pay full price for this course as it was, they would not do it; for the record, I paid what I believed was a full price.
Most of the fairways were overrun with weeds and clover. There was areation all over the course; fringes, fairways and even some of the greens. However, the very worst thing was that I was under constant attacks by swams of bugs/gnats!
I played two other courses during this trip and neither of them had bugs/gnats of that magnitude. I don't know why they were so bad, but one guy asked me about the bugs and I said they were aweful. These folks need to do something to treat and/or get rid of those bugs; they do not make for an enjoyable day.
I am not certain that I will ever return to this course, especially in its current state.
Very tough course
Played from the gold tees, but definitely should have played from the blacks. This course has a lot of trouble left and right and your tee shot must be perfect. Course was in great shape. Greens were extremely fast but could use a little more grass.
Pretty course layout. Golfer friendly if you hit from the correct It's. All in good shape and carts have GPS. A really nice day.
This is a great course for the money. The staff was very friendly. It’s kind of off the beaten path as they say from Baton Rouge but worth it. The only issue is Golf Now has the wrong address listed. I had to call the pro shop to find it , I almost missed my tee time ..
Pretty and hard
Pretty scenery and not a very forgiving course. They just punched the greens but other than that very nice!
Interesting holes, good greens.
I am visiting family and brought my clubs from Pennsylvania and enjoyed the course. Good practice facilities, really good rolling greens, traps all well maintained, just a nicely maintained and designed course. I felt the price was really fair and although I didn’t partake of their off course amenities they seemed well done.
I’d play it again, no question. The young man runners no the pro shop was welcoming and polite. Nice day on the course,
Beautiful November Golfing
The short and sweet; the staff was good; the course was great; the weather was awesome! The "amenities" were under construction, but in spite of that, the lady in there was super nice and helpful!
I would definitely play this course again!
Fast greens and windy
Friendly staff, greens overall were in great shape and fast, most bunkers were raked, tight fairways, good test of skills
Great day of spring time golf on punched greens
Course was in good shape this time of year. Unfortunately we played two days after green aeration. The fairways were very hard and balls would roll into trouble at times. Better bring a good wedge off tight lies. Our 2 elder players played the women's tees and drive 3 of the greens. The most fun he had in a long time. Retire early and play on a Tuesday.
Fast and hard greens. Very puttable and in excellent condition. Pace at 1:00 pm was excellent. Course has wide fairways, but water is often in play, but avoidable.
The only complaint is the bunkers. They hadn't been raked and were very compacted, probably due to recent rains, but it seems they could have been groomed. Except for this I would have given the course a 5. I'd certainly play it again.
Challenging but fair
I've played The Island about a dozen times so far. It's a real good layout and there are a few very challengjng holes. Course is usually in great condition although right now is a transition period due to weather. Greens were pretty quick and true. Best my buddy today, so that always makes the round better. Shot of the day was a 60 yard chip holed out for an eagle by my buddy on #4.
The Island is a visually pleasing course. Water abounds on both the front and back nines. Fairways are wide, but tee boxes and hazards make you look for premier landing spots. Greens are well kept and sometimes pin placements can be difficult. Rarely a straight put if your are more than 8 foot out. Sand bunkers are inconsistent throughout the course - anywhere from concrete to 'snow fluff'. We usually play 'rake and place' whenever someone is in the sand.
A beautiful place to play.
The course is always in great shape. And it is a very challenging course.
