Beaver Creek Golf Club: Only 20 minutes from downtown Baton Rouge off Hwy 61, BREC's Beaver Creek Golf Club is laid out on the rural plains to the north of Louisiana's state capital - it is located just over a mile from the site of the American Civil War Battle of Plains Store - the course expansively weaves its way through a predominantly natural environment of woodland and wetland, and at times alongside relatively unobtrusive housing - an open, windswept, almost treeless front-nine gives way to a more sheltered and arguably more interesting back-nine, which offers up some tighter drives and a greater number of water hazards and wetland carries - several links-style pairs of holes are played in opposite directions alongside each other, or, as at the very good par-5 11th and par-4 12th, tightly flanking either side of a small lake - another attractive pair of holes is the par-5 13th and par-4 14th, this time routed through a pleasant woodland/wetland environment - on the more open front-nine loop, with its smooth mounding, gently rolling fairways and good quality bunkering, the par-4 5th and 7th holes arrive at the same, well-bunkered double-green - a copious amount of large but relatively shallow bunkering lurks beside several fairways and around the large, undulating, good-quality greens - the long, closing par-4 18th is one such stylishly bunkered hole, played back to the modestly-sized clubhouse.

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.
