Good course

I enjoy playing Atchafalaya it a great halfway meeting point for my cousin and I. The food aftwards is always great. The course could sure use some work but overall it was playable and challenging.

A Hidden Gem in Patterson

I have played this course several times. It is challenging layout and a real test for any golfer. Only negative is the bunkers if they were redone with crushed granite and better drainage they would be one of the top courses in the state of Louisiana!!
Their staff in pro shop is great. The Resturant staff and food are really great.!!
I have enjoyed every time I have played there!!.
Looking forward to playing as soon as the rain allows a dry out.
Love the place!!

Had a blast playing here

1st I can’t say enough about the staff especially Lacey for her help... with a hurricane approaching and being we were coming from Lafayette to play I wanted to make sure they were open and it wasn’t cart path only.. she found out the info for me and politely called me back within 15 minutes... 2nd, we were greeted with all smiles from the staff there and even though the greens were punched and sanded they were very much playable and the course was in excellent shape....well worth the money, well worth the drive... we will return... THANK YOU

Challenging Course

Greens in excellent shape, fast. Had an issue with some bandits (Raccoons) on a couple of the holes. Pace of play little slow but it was a holiday. Stopped for lunch at the turn, food was great. Overall had a great time.

Prettiest Place in Patterson!

This course is as tough a challenge as most any course out there. A lot of work recently has gone into improving the conditions of the rolling fairways & undulating greens. The greens are large & tricky to read, making 3-putts not all that uncommon. So bring a hot putter!

Inside the Acadian-style clubhouse facility you will find a friendly staff, a well stocked pro shop, and a top notch sports bar & restaurant with a great menu and the prettiest views in town. Those visiting from out of town will enjoy spending the entire day at The Atchafalaya!
