Where2Golf says: 

English Turn Golf & Country Club: Located close to a historic bend in the Mississippi River, the high-end residential development of English Turn is home to one of Louisiana's finest championship golf courses - this immaculately maintained Jack Nicklaus design is laid out on relatively flat, open terrain, with mansion-sized housing kept at a safe distance around the perimeter, separated by a canal that encircles the course - the layout comprises two excellent nine-hole loops played on either side of a luxurious, plantation-style clubhouse - water here is in plentiful supply and typically lines one side of most holes - should you miss the gently mounded, good-width fairways, a wonderful array of bunkering and expansive sandy waste areas also lie in wait - although you'll not see the Mississippi itself, this challenging course will keep you fully occupied - among a raft of excellently crafted holes, the closing pair could cause you most trouble, especially if attempted from the back-tees - the par-3 17th is played diagonally across water to a well bunkered green; the long par-4 18th requires a testing drive over a small, hole-skirting lake to find the safety of the fairway - across the lake, an older-style dwelling may give the impression that English Turn was once a plantation home, but in truth only Louisiana swamp existed here before the prestigious development arrived in the late 1980s - although originally a strictly private facility, some outside visitor play is now possible at this excellent course.

Did you know?

English Turn takes its name from a hairpin turn in the Mississippi River, located just over a mile from the course. It is the first significant hairpin encountered as you journey up river from the delta, which lies 50 miles further south. Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville was an early French explorer, who with his brother, Iberville, led an expedition to establish the colony of Louisiana. One of Bienville's encounters (on his second journey up the Mississippi) was with a small number of English ships, at what then became known as English Turn.

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...
