Bayou Oaks at City Park (South course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1902

Bayou Oaks at City Park (South course): originally opened in 1902, the City Park complex quickly developed into a four golf course facility (North, South, East and West), with a busy and popular driving range.

Dealt a near fatal blow by the ravages of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, golf at City Park New Orleans took quite some time to recover ... but recover it did. The first phase of the restoration saw the par-68 North Course (originally opened in 1968), brought back into play in 2008. Thanks to the wonderful design work of Rees Jones, the 7,300 yard championship South course, came roaring back in 2017.

Did you know?

The first golf course in City Park opened in 1901. By 2005, the park hosted four courses and a driving range, which accounted for 40% of the land in City Park, and contributed around 40% of the park's entire operating budget.

Following the ravages of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the former South course was transformed into the Big Lake & Festival Grounds. The southern half of the old East course was also converted for non-golf use. The northern section of the former East course, and the entire West course were absorbed into the new Rees Jones-designed Bayou Oaks South course. The North course and the driving range occupy the same areas as they did pre-Katrina.

From 1938 until 1962, City Park was home to the first 14 editions of the PGA Tour's New Orleans Open. It was played on what at the time was known as the No.1 (East) course, some of the holes of which are now much redesigned and integrated into the South course.
