The Bluffs Country Club: Nestled among the hardwoods and undulating landscape alongside Thompson Creek, The Bluffs is an upscale, master-planned, residential community that includes a fabulous Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. Originally called The Bluffs at Thompson Creek, then just The Bluffs, the club now appears to have reverted to being called The Bluffs on Thompson Creek.
The natural beauty of the land takes precedence here, while the homes are generally set well back, behind the attractively tree-lined fairways. The layout includes excellent quality bunkering, a myriad of water hazards provided by natural creeks and ponds, pleasant elevation changes and some splendid views out onto Thompson Creek.
The Bluffs will hold your interest and test your golfing skills from start to finish. The immensely scenic opening and closing holes are perched directly above the bluffs, which form the westerly bank of Thompson Creek. An award winning layout and ranked by many as the top course in the state of Louisiana.
Stay&Play at The Bluffs: following a change of ownership in the late 2000s, this excellent layout can now be played on a visiting "green fee" basis or (as before) as a Stay&Play guest at the adjacent Lodge.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends. Closed on Mondays.
Must book in advance.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2018].
Non-metal spike facility. Walking permitted at all times.
Originally known as The Bluffs at Thompson Creek, this once private golf course now accepts visiting green fee payers. Members and Lodge guests still retain advance tee-time booking privileges.
Just a couple of miles away is Oakley Plantation House, located within the Audubon Memorial State Park. It was here, while hired for four months as a drawing teacher, that naturalist John James Audubon painted 32 of his famous bird pictures. The house, kitchen and slaves dwellings are now open to the public, and have been restored to the period style (1790-1830), reflecting their appearance when Audubon stayed here. A guided tour is recommended.
