Hole 1

 

Bayou Long

Par: 4

This starting hole offers a generous landing area with fairway bunkers and a water feature guarding the left side, mounding down the right.  Use a driver or three-wood aiming down the right side of the fairway as the green opens up better from the right.  Greenside bunkers guard the left side on your approach with a mid or short iron.  Play for the middle of the green and hit one more club to challenge a back left pin location.  Par is a good score on this opening hole.

Hole 2

 

Cypress Island Pass

Par: 3

Framed by native trees and plant life, this challenging par 3 features a large green sloped slightly from front to back, away from the player.  A long iron, hybrid or fairway wood shot must avoid the small bunker guarding the front of the green and the bunkers behind which extend across the entire back side.  A high shot is required to hold the green.  A large mound on the left side of the green makes pitching and chipping very challenging.  A back, left pin placement is the most difficult.  Make par and you are 1 up on the field.

Hole 3

 

Willow Cove

Par: 5

Target your drive for the left side of the fairway on this dogleg right par 5.  Fairway bunkers come into play on the right side at approximately 220 yards.  A well-positioned tee shot allows an opportunity to reach the green with fairway wood or long iron.  A fade or long carry is required on the second shot as trees and a wetland feature guard the right side of the hole on your approach.  Greenside bunkers protect the right side and back of this large green which stretches to over 40 yards from front to back.  Keep it in play and birdie is a real possibility.

Hole 4

 

Bayou Mistigris

Par: 4

Placement of your tee shot is critical on this difficult par 4.  A lateral water hazard comes into play down the left side requiring an accurate tee shot and pinpoint approach to an undulating, bulk headed green.  The fairway slopes from right to left adding to the challenge.  Greenside bunkers on the right catch any shots hit too conservatively.  A long, narrow green with water around the left side and behind makes this second shot one of the most demanding on the course.  Take par and be thankful.

Hole 5

 

Sandy Cove

Par: 4

This picturesque par 4 features high mounding down the right side, bunkers and water on left.  A generous fairway makes driver the best choice off the tee.  Favor the left side for the best approach with a mid to short iron.  Framed by two large oak trees, the green is larger than it appears from the fairway.  Bunkers protect the right front portion and come into play in the back.  The green features a lower level in the back left.  Take enough club to carry front bunkers. A good second shot will set up a birdie putt.

Hole 6

 

Devil's Elbow

Par: 5

An aggressive play with the driver for long ball hitters is to aim right and carry the water feature leaving an open shot to the green.  Smart players take their most accurate fairway wood off the tee to stay short of bunkers on this dogleg right driving hole, as this is a 3-shot hole. The second shot is played around or over a stand of trees on this double dog-leg. Fairway bunkers line the left side approaching the green.  A short iron approach to an open green allows the player several options and affords a good opportunity to putt for birdie.

Hole 7

 

Blue Point

Par: 3

A backdrop of large trees and lake on the left make this par 3 a beautiful hole. Usually a mid iron, be careful to play to the area of the pin on this large, undulating “horse shoe” green.  Framed by small bunkers on the left, front, and right corners, the putting surface features a large lower level in the center of the green which can be difficult to negotiate.  Par is a good score.

Hole 8

 

Duck Lake

Par: 4

A relatively short par 4 with a large lake to the left and mounding to the right, this hole affords several options.  For long hitters, driving the green is possible.  For most players, a 230-yard tee shot sets up a short iron to a long green sloping right to left.  Position your approach below the hole for the best putt.  This is a good birdie opportunity.

Hole 9

 

Bayou Courtableau

Par: 4

Long par 4 with numerous bunkers built into the hills on the right side.  Fairway slopes right to left past the bunkers.  A safe play for the tee shot is down the right side.  Longer hitters will carry the bunker complex on the right leaving a short iron into the green.  One long bunker extends down the left side of the hole from the 150 marker to the green.  Water to the left of this bulk headed green, requires an accurate approach.  The green appears much smaller from the fairway.  Stay in the fairway for any chance at par.

Hole 10

 

Lake Mongoulois

Par: 4

A three wood off the tee leaves a mid to short iron second.  Take enough club to reach the pin on this elevated green.  A tall tree on the left side of the fairway blocks the approach from that side.  Bunkers guard the green in the front, back and left side.  An accurate tee shot and approach are required on this testy little par 4.

Hole 11

 

Happy Town

Par: 3

A large tree overhangs the fairway on the right side close to the tee preventing a big draw from finding the green.  A fade works best into this large green with only slight undulations.  Challenging pitch shots await the player missing this green in regulation, as the areas around the green are much lower than the green surface.  Par is a solid score.

Hole 12

 

Coon Trap

Par: 4

A wide fairway awaits the player on this dogleg right par 4.  Long hitters will carry the fairway bunkers on the right leaving a short iron second to a green guarded by bunkers.  Most players will play down the middle of the fairway but must dodge small pot bunkers.  The second shot is to a narrow, long green, small in diameter in the front but larger in the back.  The key to a good score on this hole is an accurate approach.

HaHa Bay

Par: 5

Drive the ball down the left side of the fairway for a chance to hit the green in two on this great risk/reward hole.  Small grass bunkers dot the left side of the fairway with a large bunker complex on the right.  Water comes into play off the tee for the very long and borders the right side up to the green which is bulk headed.  An accurate approach is required to putt for eagle.  Be very careful on this dangerous par 5.

Hole 14

 

Whiskey Bay

Par: 4

Small fairway bunkers split the center of the fairway on this long par 4.  Aiming down the left side shortens the hole but causes the water on the left to come into play.  A large oak tree guards the right front of the green.  The fairway slopes from right to left causing uneven lies for the second.  Avoid large bunkers guarding the left side of the green for a chance at a birdie putt.  The large putting surface has many subtle undulations.  Par is a good score on this deceptively difficult hole.

Crook Chene

Par: 3

A straight forward par 3, this relatively short hole has greenside bunkers on the right and left sides and a large bunker in the back.  The green has few undulations.  An open hole the wind can be a factor.  A good iron shot will yield a birdie opportunity.

Hole 16

 

Grand Avoyelle Cove

Par: 5

This dogleg par 5 features bunkers down the left side, mounding on the right.  Long hitters will cut the corner, aiming over the bunkers and may reach the green in two, but must negotiate bunkers completely surrounding the green.  Players with average distance will play down the middle of the fairway off the tee and lay up with a fairway wood or long iron leaving a short iron third shot.  Water on the left side of the fairway for the last 125 yards of the hole will catch errant second shots.  An accurate approach to the green is a must.  Par is a good score on this challenging hole.

Hole 17

 

Lake Fausse Point

Par: 4

This short par 4 has a wide fairway with a few small bunkers.  The second shot is to an elevated green with a false front and many undulations.  An accurate approach is required due to the slopes on the green which could easily take the ball to a new location with the wrong spin or distance.  Small bunkers in the front and back of the green will catch short and long shots.  Two-putting can be a challenge as the green slopes dramatically down on the front, right and left sides.  Birdie is a possibility if each stroke is planned and executed correctly.

Six Mile Lake

Par: 4

This tough par 4 has water to the right running the entire length of the hole and mounding down the left.  The fairway slopes from left to right.  Avoid small bunkers off the tee which dot the right side.   The approach is to a bulk headed green with small bunkers on the left, water on the right.  Wind is a factor as the hole is out in the open.  The green is a common green with #9 and features subtle undulations.  The right, front pin placement is the most difficult as water comes into play on the second shot and the putting surface slopes toward the water making chipping and pitching very difficult.  Par on this difficult finishing hole is always a great score.
