Good morning,

My wife has corporate meetings in New Orleans March 12-15. As a school teacher, I am on spring break that week and will be traveling with her.

I’m going to golf all day on Tuesday and Wednesday.  So, my questions are twofold:
1. Anyone want to join me?
2. Any course recommendations?  I’m playing English Turn on Tuesday—probably twice that day.

On Wednesday, does anyone have any recommendations?  I don’t want to spend more than $100.

We are staying at the Marriot on Canal street and was hoping to not drive a ton.

Options:
Bayou Oaks—price might be too much—the South course
TPC—is it worth it
Beau Chene—further drive across the Lake—is it a pain to get there?
Audubon—short executive course
Joseph Bartholomew—I know nothing about it
Lakewood—I know nothing.
Stone bridge—looks reasonably priced
Thanks!
John

Don't miss Audubon Park.  Get on the streetcar with your clubs on Canal St.  Head up St. Charles Ave. and drop you off right there.

I played TPC last week and it's the only course I've played in the area. It's nothing spectacular but was pretty decent. I'd put it on your itinerary if you get a good deal since it's a Tour stop.

New Orleans resident here and Bayou Oaks South member. I would play with you but I’ll probably be working every day that week. English Turn is one of my favorite courses in the state. Has a ton of character and has been in great shape but haven’t played it since they started getting all this rain. Bayou Oaks will be in great condition, their greens are always some of the best around. However, if you’ve never played TPC that is where I would play. It should be in really good shape considering it’s only a month and a half away from the tourney. As far as some of the other courses I wouldn’t bother with any of them besides Lakewood. Also, it would be worth calling out to Money Hill to see if they would let you play.

I'm also a teacher and headed to Palm Springs early on that week. Thought about heading to New Orleans for the second weekend. If you were still going to be there I'd be booking a hotel room!

Thank you so much everyone.

I’ve made two tee times at English Turn on Tuesday.  8:06 and 1:15.

If things change for anyone, feel free to shoot me a message.

I’m torn between playing Audubon, Bayou Oaks South, and TPC. I guess I’ll just go by price and convenience.

Money Hills looks awesome. I’m not sure I want to drive that far. But, boy the website sure made that place look awesome.

Thanks again!

That’s funny!  The second weekend we are headed to Jacksonville to visit my parents. We are probably going to play Queens Harbor and maybe Marsh Creek.

We are having our floor replaced due to water damage and have to be out of the house for 12 days. So, just traveling around!

English Turn will be great. They probably have the smallest greens you will ever play so I hope you’re very precise with your irons. As far as Audubon, TPC, or Bayou Oaks goes you’re looking at very different experiences. If you’re looking for a serious round of golf then forget about Audubon. It’s basically a par 3 course with a couple short par 4s and par 5s thrown in there. It’s fun, you can play in about two hours but it’s not a real test of golf. It’ll definitely be the cheapest by a wide margin though. TPC and BO might be very expensive since you aren’t a LA resident. You will have a great time at all 3 though.

Money Hill is a hike but it’s by far the most scenic course around.

I've just returned from a trip to New Orleans this past weekend.  Area has seen a lot of rain lately.  TPC is in MUCH better condition than English Turn.  I didn't play any other courses so I can't comment on those.
