Where2Golf says: 

Olde Oaks Golf Club: Located a few miles south-east of Shreveport, Olde Oaks is another of the more outlying, but excellent golf courses on the Audubon Golf Trail - with 27-holes laid out as the Oak, Cypress and Meadow nines, you can pit your golfing skills against three contrasting layouts - each nine follows an expansive out-and-back routing from the clubhouse, but there the similarities end - as the name suggests, the Oak-nine exudes a predominantly tree-lined feel, with pleasant undulations rather than pronounced elevation changes along the way - oaks and pines line the nicely rolling fairways that lead you to excellent quality greens, often home to extravagant slopes and borrows - the Cypress-nine provides a mixed environment, sometimes tree-lined, at other times more open - upscale housing is more noticeable, though never too close to the course to be intrusive, nor detract from the naturalness of the layout - more water is in play on the Cypress nine, as you'll quickly discover at the good-length par-5 1st, which is flanked by a good-sized lake from tee-to-green - water threatens again on four of the remaining eight holes - in distinct contrast to the other two nines, the Meadow course is based on an open, British links-style design, although with more water in play than the average Scotsman might be accustomed to - rolling, rather than towering dunes line the good-width fairways, which weave through a scenic and very natural wetland landscape.

Did you know?

Olde Oaks Golf Club is a member of Louisiana's Audubon Golf Trail. | The nearby city of Shreveport is Louisiana's third-largest city. It was founded in 1836 by the Shreve Town Company, which was established to develop a town at the intersection of the newly navigable Red River and the Texas Trail (an overland route into the newly independent Republic of Texas, formerly part of Mexico). The Red River was made navigable by Captain Henry Miller Shreve, commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The company and fledgling town were named in Shreve's honour.

Latest golf course reviews
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...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
