   LaTour Golf Club Est. 2009

Where2Golf says: 

LaTour Golf Club opened for public play in September 2009. This 7,232-yard championship course designed by Louisianan PGA Tour professional David Toms, is a top-quality and relatively open parkland design. Excellent bunkering and not insignificant water hazards, plus the course's length provide an all round test for your game. A strong contender to be the course’s signature hole is the par-3 17th, which is modelled on Royal Troon's 138-yard 8th hole, known as the "Postage Stamp". Another unique hole is the 18th, a 563-yard par-5 that plays entirely uphill. Just a short drive from New Orleans, this is an excellent new addition to the golfing credentials of Louisiana's already established reputation as a sportsman's paradise.

Did you know?

The driving force behind LaTour Golf Club and neighbouring community was John A. Brady Jr. As a US Army veteran and former telecomms industry entrepreneur, John Brady's love of travel, golf, fishing and other recreational sports combined to create the vision of a golf and country club in this part of Louisiana. He unfortunately died in 2008 before the opening of LaTour, but his spirit lives on in this prestigious facility.

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.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
