The Wetlands Golf Course

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 2006

The Wetlands Golf Course: Quietly tucked away from roads and housing, just outside the historic Cajun city of Lafayette - The Wetlands course, a member of the Audubon Golf Trail, will certainly appeal to big-hitters - built in the mid-2000s on open and flattish terrain, the course measures almost 7300 yards from the back tees, and is characterised by generally good-width, lightly bunkered fairways, lined by not overly penal rough - although at first sight a relatively easy-going course, the course name gives away its most important line of defence - interlaced with small lakes, reed-lined ponds and wetland areas, water is brought into play on about half the holes - on several others out-of-bounds threatens, especially on your rightside from the par-4 10th tee to the par-3 13th green, a stretch of holes that follows the layout's northern and western perimeter - accurate approach play will often be required, with some smaller greens to aim at and others closely hugging the water's edge, not least the double-green of the 9th and 18th holes - the most attractive holes on this good-length, open layout are those that combine the threat of water with the best of the bunkering, like the par-4 12th and short, doglegging par-4 17th - without too much mounding or landscaping, the flat environment provides many opportunities to look across the course and out onto rural, but not especially dramatic, surrounding countryside.

Did you know?

The Wetlands is a member of Louisiana's Audubon Golf Trail. | The course is located in Lafayette, on the Vermilion River. The city was founded as Vermilionville in 1821 by Jean Mouton. In 1884, it was renamed after General Lafayette, a French military commander who significantly aided the American Army during the American Revolutionary War. Lafayette is the centre of the Cajun culture in Louisiana and home to world famous Cajun cuisine. The word Cajun is a corruption of Acadian, describing something or someone from Acadiana, the name given by the early French settlers to southern Louisiana. Cajuns are descended from exiles from what are now Canada's Maritime Provinces, particularly New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia.
