Course Reviews

Played this past Monday with an ex-coworker. Course in outstanding shape except for 2 things. A few greens had some bad spots, the rest of them were immaculate and putted true. Second, almost all the traps had standing water due to all the local rain lately. Best muni course I've played in 45 years of playing the game. Clubhouse staff, snack bar, and rangers all very polite and helpful. The pics in the hole by hole do not do this course any kind of justice at all!! Had a great time and hope to come back soon.

Good, fast Tifeagle greens. Great practice facilities, the grass all over the course is good. Some good hole designs, some not so good, but it can't get any better for a public course.

GPS in carts was GREAT!!! Can't wait until new clubhouse is finished. Excellent value!

Nice course for a round with friends. Not as uptight as other courses, more relaxing. Not a lot of marshalls rushing you through a fun round with friends.

nice course best value in lake charles that i've seen so far.

Extremely fair course. One of the best public venues in Louisiana without a doubt. Greens do get very nice just before the Lake Charles City Championship in summer. Clubhouse was damaged during Hurricane Rita and has yet to be reopened.

What can i say its my home course. Great layout, front 9 = wide open, back 9 = tight. fun course.

Mallard Cove - Lake Charles, LA

Greens in the summertime are the finest you will find along the Gulf Coast. Tif Eagle grass putts very smooth and they can be cut to play fast, but will still hold iron shots very well. Fairways are always in excellent condition with an intermediate cut of rough. Greenside rough is thick buy playable in most cases.

At $25 with a cart, this is one of the best values you will find.
