Where2Golf says: 

Cypress Bend Resort, Golf, Spa & Hotel: Impressively located on the banks of Toledo Bend Lake, with the state of Texas just across on the other side. Although in geographical terms one of the "outliers" of the Audubon Golf Trail, Cypress Bend is certainly one of the Trail's most natural, scenic and wonderfully crafted layouts. With the advantage of excellent onsite accommodation, this Resort & Conference Centre offers a fabulously undulating (at times hilly) golf course, which weaves its way through lines of towering pines and alongside the huge lake. In this stunningly natural setting, you will enjoy many dramatically elevated tee-boxes (starting at the first hole), which alternate with elevated greens, as at the closing par-4 18th. Whereas the front-nine takes you through the pine forest and alongside two of the lake's inlets, the back-nine gets you right beside the lake itself and looking across into Texas. The closing stretch from the downhill, doglegging long par-4 14th is as scenic as you could wish for. The downhill par-4 16th is a shorter version of the 14th, also doglegging from left to right into a lakeside green. The signature par-3 17th also occupies a glorious lakeside setting and again requires a shot across a corner of the lake to reach the safety of the green. With no housing anywhere to be seen and an occasional rustic edge to some of the presentation, this is a wonderfully natural and at times dramatic course that's well worth making a detour to play.

Did you know?

Cypress Bend Golf Resort is a member of Louisiana's Audubon Golf Trail. | The golf course is located on the Louisiana bank of Toledo Bend Lake, a man-made reservoir that stretches for 70 miles, and is typically three to four 4 miles wide. The lake, the fifth largest man-made lake in the USA, was created in the mid-1960s by constructing a dam across the Sabine River. The upper reaches of the 555-mile long Sabine River flow through the prairie country of northeast Texas, while its lower reaches (including Toledo Bend Lake) form the border between Texas and Louisiana.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
