Where2Golf says: 

The Bluffs Country Club: Nestled among the hardwoods and undulating landscape alongside Thompson Creek, The Bluffs is an upscale, master-planned, residential community that includes a fabulous Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course - following a change of ownership in the late 2000s, this excellent layout can now be played on a visiting "green fee" basis or (as before) as a Stay & Play guest at the adjacent Lodge - the natural beauty of the land takes precedence here and the homes are generally set well back, behind the attractively tree-lined fairways - with excellent quality bunkering, a myriad of water hazards provided by natural creeks and ponds, pleasant elevation changes and some splendid views out onto Thompson Creek, The Bluffs will hold your interest and test your golfing skills from start to finish - the immensely scenic opening and closing holes are perched directly above the bluffs, which form the westerly bank of Thompson Creek - an award winning layout and ranked by many as the top course in the state of Louisiana.

Did you know?

Originally known as The Bluffs at Thompson Creek, this once private golf course now accepts visiting green fee payers. Members and Lodge guests still retain advance tee-time booking privileges. | Just a couple of miles away is Oakley Plantation House, located within the Audubon Memorial State Park. It was here, while hired for four months as a drawing teacher, that naturalist John James Audubon painted 32 of his famous bird pictures. The house, kitchen and slaves dwellings are now open to the public, and have been restored to the period style (1790-1830), reflecting their appearance when Audubon stayed here. A guided tour is recommended.

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...
