Clubhouse & Restaurant

The Atchafalaya Clubhouse is open to the public, and you don't have to be a golfer to enjoy the spectacular views and great food.

The ClubhouseThe 10,000 square foot structure is modeled after an elevated Acadian-style cottage, with a 22-foot wide back porch running the length of the clubhouse and overlooking the common green of holes 9 and 18. The stadium-type atmosphere makes it very popular for tournaments where golfers can watch as the others come in.

Approximately 130,000 board feet of cypress lumber were used for rich paneled walls and long leaf pine flooring throughout, and has been recognized as one of the best restaurants in the region!


Connected to our restaurant, we offer a private conference room that comfortably seats 25, with a complete AV system featuring 52" screens and wireless internet, providing the perfect setting for your meeting or event.


Cajun fare and fresh favorites make our cypress clubhouse one of the most flavorful stops in Acadiana. In fact, New Orleans City Business Magazine named The Atchafalaya as one of the top restaurants in the area. We offer a well-stocked bar, large screen HD TV's and great views of the course with seating on our big back porch.

On our menu, you'll find everything from french fries to shrimp cocktails, burgers to poboys, pasta to etouffee, jambalaya, and red beans & rice. You won't leave hungry, and everyone is welcome.  Well received and new this year is Sunday Brunch - available from 10-2 every'll enjoy it!
