Best golf courses in Louisiana

If you are setting out on Louisiana's Audubon Golf Trail, there is no better place to start your journey than in the heart of "uptown" New Orleans. 

In Audubon Park you will find the city's oldest golf course and one of the Trail's great little treasures. Audubon Park Golf Club is a member of Louisiana's Audubon Golf Trail, and an Audubon International Sanctuary Course, the first property in the state to achieve this certification.

The Golf Club, Park and world-wide sanctuary programme derive their names from John James Audubon (1785-1851), a French-American ornithologist, naturalist, hunter and painter. Audubon's stunning paintings and cataloguing of the birds of North America captured the spirit of the new American nation of the United States. If you can, try to get along to the clubhouse for Sunday brunch, its a gourmet delight of local dishes and flavours.

Here is a rundown on the best golf courses in Louisiana.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
