1. TPC Louisiana – Avondale, LA

TPC Louisiana is home to the state’s only PGA TOUR event, the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, but lucky for you, it’s also open to the public. Designed by legendary architect Pete Dye, TPC combines a championship level course with the beauty and charm of Louisiana. Set your tee time today, and play where the pros play!


2. Fallen Oak – Saucier, MS


Fallen Oak is designed by Tom Fazio, who is widely considered the country’s greatest living golf architect.

You can even make the trip to and from the course in a limousine, as if you needed any more reason to come to the Coast and check out this gem!

4. University Course – Baton Rouge, LA

When asked where to golf in Baton Rouge, former LSU Tiger and current PGA Tour pro David Toms said, “I would start at The University Club.” While Toms may be slightly biased (he helped design the course), that’s high praise from a professional, especially in a town that was ranked the state’s top golf destination by GolfLink.com. Home of the LSU Tigers, this championship caliber course has green fees that everyone can enjoy. So, take a stroll in Tiger Country and enjoy one of the best courses Louisiana has to offer!


5. English Turn Golf & Country Club – New Orleans, LA

Named for the bend in the Mississippi River, and dubbed the pinnacle of New Orleans golf country club magnificence, English Turn is a fine Crescent City tradition. Designed by Jack Nicklaus himself, this 18-hole championship course is a tribute to the legendary Golden Bear. With plenty of lakes, bunkers, and the famous fifteenth island green, this majestic course offers PGA quality challenges for any golfer. Source: English Turn
