Est. 2009

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.

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.
