I enjoyed this course a great deal. The course is in great shape with a pretty difficult layout. There are, however, a lot of birdie opportunities out there. The course offers generous bail-out areas on tee shots. Approaches can get dicey. I found the greens to be running at a perfect speed, neither lightning fast nor shaggy. The clubhouse offers cold drinks (especially the beer) and delicious food surrounded by several flat screens to watch sporting events. My one gripe is the fact that a few of the holes on the back nine sit adjacent to a baseball park, which on weekends can get a little noisy while trying to make that 15 foot par save. Overall, this is a great value and a worthwhile trip. You won't regret it.

This was a very challenging and beautiful course. It was very hilly and you could get involved in some very strange lys even if you hit the ball straight. If you go on a Tuesday you can just about have the place to yourself. Awsome charts and the range boys were very polite and helpful. The clubhouse food was average and we waited on it a while (my wife, who eats there more than I do says that the food is usually much better). I enjoyed my round and am currently getting another outing together for some of my friends to get together and play the course again.

Atchafalaya at Idlewild

Upon completion of the massive cypress clubhouse in October of 2006, this course will be considered one of the finest golf destinations in Louisiana. All natural surroundings and very challenging golf set in the heart of the Atchafalaya Basin make this course a must play.

Really nice course. Nice layout, with medium to large undulating greens. One of the nicer of the newer public tracts in south Louisiana. A very decent test, with water hazards to spare.

fun course..use to work there for two years...easy course once you play it...usually always in good shape...only thing is it is a bit pricy

Can't drive by without stopping to play a round.
This is a great course at a reasonable price!
