LaTour Golf Club

Unrated: Well regarded course not yet visited by the Where2Golf team.

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.
