Where2Golf says: 

The Island Country Club: Just outside the city of Plaquemine, sandwiched between historic Bayou Plaquemine on one side, and Bayou Jacob on the other, The Island Golf Club is laid out on a former sugar cane plantation - the two nine-hole loops occupy relatively flat and open terrain, with plenty of water hazards along the way - although the larger bayou (Plaquemine) is rarely in play and often 100 yards or more from the course, Bayou Jacob threatens on several occasions - the entire stretch from the tee of the par-4 10th to the par-3 13th green is played with the bayou flanking the rightside of each hole - on the front-nine, the opening three holes are also played alongside the bayou - gentle mounding and a mix of pot bunkers and more expansive sand traps provide added defences to all but two holes: the bunkerless and sharply doglegging par-4 1st and the water defended 13th - when bayous and wetlands are not present, single-storey housing could well be flanking the holes, including a replica of the original plantation home that once stood here (the replica, on your just after the par-4 17th tee, is apparently only 10 years old) - there's not too much to see beyond the course, with flat farmland stretching away to the north and the mainly tree-screened Bayou Plaquemine occasionally in view on the southside of the course - an enjoyably open and challenging layout, not least if the wind is blowing, although not necessarily one of the Audubon Golf Trail's most picturesque and scenic layouts.

Did you know?

The Island is a member of Louisiana's Audubon Golf Trail. | Flanking the course to the south is Bayou Plaquemine, a distributary of the Mississippi River and former commercial transport route to the heartland of Louisiana through the Atchafalaya Basin. Now a State Historic Site, Plaquemine Lock, at the northern end of the city of Plaquemine, was completed in 1909 to provide a short-cut from the Mississippi River into Louisiana's interior. It was significant for having the highest fresh water lift of any lock in the world, 51 feet.

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. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
