Course Reviews


We were just in town for an overnight and decided to try this course. We were very impressed! Staff are friendly and accomodating! Fairways and greens are in great shape, rough is unforgiving! Would definitely play here again if ever back tis way!

I love this course. I have played it a few times and the greens are great. The rouge will make you pay for a bad shot the fairway rewards you for a good shot. The par 3s are very fun and the 16th looks so short and plays very long. I will play course alot and the price is great for a player that averages in the mid 90's~

Excellent course -- the yardage, by the way, is 7,293 yards from the black tees. And it is a long walk to the first teebox.

I have never experienced most of the problems the poster below me stated. No more "tall grass" in front of tees. Water is always in the jugs. Greens are flat out sweet. Quick too. The practice range does suck. The fact that the practice green is located 1/2 mile from the 1st tee is stupid. The chipping green is located at the first tee which always seems to create problems for people who are unknowingly putting on the chipping green. It is just a dumb layout of the practice facility. However, once you get out on the course, all is good. Pretty wide fairways, large fast greens. I find the bunkers to be great and consistent. When they let the rough grow, it is penal. Could do without the cruddy houses/residents to the right of the 7th fairway. How about some shrubs or something to block all that crap out? Great course for money and so far, it has been kept in great shape.

I guess you could make the arguement that there is value at this course, but to rate it as high as its been rated is crazy. The practice facilities are poor, the greens are sandy and grass is too long. Bunkers are always poorly maintained. Never any water on the course to drink in the summer. You have much better options in Lafayette to play for similar money.

Great layout. There are many different ways to play each hole. With five tee boxes it is like a new course each time. Best set of par threes of any course in Lafayette area. Green are always fast, but true.

just a GREAT course not much else to say about it with out writing a book, food great, beer cheap, pro shop well over priced, greens some of the best, fairways nice and rough is harder then it looks around the greens one thing i didnt like was the 9th, and 18th green being shared but other than that awsome course highly recommend it to anyone in the area and to you truck drivers suck it up and walk the 3/4 mile to the course well worth it and i did it

You won't find a better value in Lafayette for a championship caliber course. My biggest gripe is too many tee boxes have tall native grasses in front, forcing you to hit it high in a hurry. Playing links style, it is often advantageous to keep the ball down.

Bargain

Very young golf course that can play difficult from the tips are fairly easy from the white markers. Fairways are very plush with nice greens. A good bargain for $40.

The Wetlands

This course opened in April 2006 and is municipally owned. Thankfully it is a far cry from the average muni. This course is very "links like" and shows its teeth when the wind is up. Although called "The Wetlands" water is only directly in play on a few holes. The 9th and 18th holes share a double green in front of the clubhouse. Playing "The Wetlands" is a nice change of pace from playing the more typical parkland layouts in the area.

It was just announced in June 2007 that the course will become part of the Audubon Trail. That means the city must dedicate at least $500,000 yearly in course maintenance. Thus far the course has been in very good condition each time I have played it and the greens are maturing nicely. For $41 including cart I think its a great bargain and the equal of many courses charging 2 - 3 times as much. Enjoy.
