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.

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.

Latest golf course reviews
Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park. Perhaps not as lauded as nearby Little Aston, and Copt Heath, this heathland gem also lays down a really enjoyable test of golf in a wonderfully natural setting. Read more... 
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...
