Audubon Park Golf Club: If you are setting out on Louisiana's Audubon Golf Trail, there is no better place to start your journey than in the heart of "uptown" New Orleans. In Audubon Park you will find the city's oldest golf course and one of the Trail's great little treasures. With twelve par-3's, four par-4's and two par-5's, and stretching to only 4200 yards, this beautifully crafted layout will test your shot-making rather than length from the tee. Located four miles along St Charles Ave from the famous French Quarter, this is a municipal course with a difference. Excellently maintained and surrounded by some of the city's most prestigious antebellum homes, there are few course's to match the elegance and charm of Audubon Park. Transformed in 2002 from a sleepy, flat and rather mundane layout, the new 18-holes have been beautifully landscaped and crafted, now posing a memorable challenge to golfers of all abilities. Four small lakes and a perimeter canal ensure that a majority of the 12 par-3s, and all but one of the excellent par-4s and par-5's, bring water into play. A wonderful array of mounded bunkering gives each hole its own unique look and challenge. The putting surfaces and green surrounds would be quite at home on any of Louisiana's more exclusive Country Club layouts. Although a relatively open course, the perimeter is surrounded by huge, moss-laden oaks, and beyond them the large, plantation style homes. Tulane University flanks the course's northern boundary.

Did you know?

Audubon Park Golf Club is a member of Louisiana's Audubon Golf Trail, and an Audubon International Sanctuary Course, the first property in the state to achieve this certification. | The Golf Club, Park and world-wide sanctuary programme derive their names from John James Audubon (1785-1851), a French-American ornithologist, naturalist, hunter and painter. Audubon's stunning paintings and cataloguing of the birds of North America captured the spirit of the new American nation of the United States. | If you can, try to get along to the clubhouse for Sunday brunch, its a gourmet delight of local dishes and flavours.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
