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

Est. 2002

OakWing Golf Club: In the very centre of Louisiana, alongside the city of Alexandria, you'll find another of the Audubon Golf Trail's enjoyable and challenging championship courses - an excellent variety of holes and golfing challenges awaits the visitor to OakWing - although a predominantly open, parkland course, some stretches are routed alongside mature trees, others are flanked by small lakes, while the middle of the back-nine occupies a distinctly open, links-like environment alongside a not overly busy aerodrome - on the front-nine the par-4 3rd and long par-3 4th are tightly wrapped around a small lake, with the closing four holes of this front-nine loop also fiercely water defended - beyond the green of the par-4 6th five mounted fighter aircraft provide an impressive backdrop, as well as a memorial to a former Air Force Base (see Did You Know section below) - this varied collection of well-bunkered, often water-defended and generally well-maintained holes continues through its suburban setting, with tall mature oaks, open countryside, wetlands, a bayou, schools, housing, an airfield, a cemetery and a couple of churches all adding to the varied scene alongside and beyond the course - good mounding and bunkering around the often sloping greens is never more in evidence than at the short par-4 5th, and at the attractive and assorted collection of par-3s - OakWing may not be top gun on the Audubon Trail, but it will provide an enjoyable round and good overall examination of your golfing skills.

Did you know?

OakWing Golf Club is a member of Louisiana's Audubon Golf Trail. | The club is located alongside a former United States Air Force facility that operated between 1942 and 1992. Originally known as Alexandria Army Air Base, it was renamed England Air Force Base in honour of Lt Col John Brooke England, a much decorated WW2 fighter pilot, who flew P-51 Mustangs. The five mounted fighter aircraft in Heritage Park (alongside the 6th green) is a memorial to the Air Base and 23rd Fighter Wing (which incorporated the famous Flying Tigers).

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.
