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.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
