Course is great condition at the time of this writing, amenities are first rate, and the staff could not be any friendlier or any more helpful. There is no real elevation change and the only defense on this course is the greens: they have a lot of movement, are tough to read, and 3-putts will not be uncommon. Landing areas are generous and rough is minimal. The only negative I can mention are a lack of variety or novelty: you have played all these holes somewhere else and none are memorable.

A well kept course that can be tough.

Good hard course. Don't go on the weekend if you don't want to be rushed. They will pair you with other parties if you don't let them know differently. Regular fees are so high that everyone tries to cram in a twilight round.

Course is in phenomenal shape. The twilight greens fee is the best value around. If I didn't have to drive 45 minutes to play I would play this golf course all the time. You won't be disappointed.

a fine course!

Truly a great golf course with terribly tough greens. The course appears shorter and easier than it plays. The bunkers are played perfectly and the layout is superb. The course is spread over a great deal of land and doesn't give a cramped feeling like many resort courses. Overall a great course which I plan to play many times in the future.

a day at the carter plantation

i stayed at carter plantation in october and had a tee time for monday. as always happens it was raining and no one was playing. the course was in great shape after what probably a long summer. as long as you hit straight you can stay out of trouble. i really liked the greens and adjusted to them quite well. the scenery was outstanding. being from arizona where all desert courses pretty much look the same, the beautiful trees were really a pleasant sight. the green fees maybe a little pricey but it was worth it for the experience. i enjoyed the bar and restuarant but the breakfast menu needs to expand and where are the grits? i want grits with my breakfast. i recomend the course to anyone wants to be challenged and have a great day. i look forward to my return there in october.

Great Challenge

I found Carter Plantation by accident,it was the qualifying course for the US Open Sectionals.A sprained ankle kept me from qualifying on Wednesday,but I did get to play a practice round on Monday.I loved it.Even from the Black tees it was manageable.Get ready for more sidehill lies then you realize! Number #1 is driveable so load up and fire at it.The Pro Shop and staff were very friendly."I'LL BE BACK".

Great People, Even Better Course

This Has Got To Be the Greates Course, Next To Pebble Beach That I have Ever Played. I Can Not Wait To Get Back There. I Would Love To See Some Type Of PGA, Or LPGA PLayed At This Course. I Bet They Would All Agree It Is One Great Place To Play Golf.
The People That Work And Live Around The Course Are By Far The Best People I Have Ever Meet
Carter Plantation, Please Keep Up The GOOD Work.

The Gem of South Louisiana

David Toms' only course to date, this was in my backyard before moving out of Louisiana. But what a course it is. The course winds its way thru south Louisiana swamp land, and is a work of art. I've played many of the Robert Trent Jones courses in Alabama since leaving Louisiana, and can say that this course ranks up there with the best of them. Play it before it becomes a full-fledged subdivision though. Lagniappe: The practice facility is worth spending 1.5 to 2 hours prior to play, and if it's lunch time, DO NOT MISS the blue cheese burger they make here!

Tough, but well kept course

Course is in excellent condition. Bunkers are extremely well placed and very difficult to get out of. They need to provide sand which is consistent throughout the course. Greens fees quite high ($100 on weekend). Play Pass Membership (($2700/yr) well worth the investment. Course get's progressively harder from the first hole. Greens fast and undulating. Staff is great and the cart girls are gorgeous!!
