Historic City Park Golf Course has occupied its 25-acre parcel on the northern tip of City Park Lake since 1926. Comprised exclusively of par 3s and 4s, the nine-hole layout keeps distances manageable—its longest hole is 377 yards—so beginners can enjoy the course as much as their longer-driving counterparts. Though the course may be short on yardage, it's long on history as one of a select group of golf courses recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, preserving it from destruction so that future generations will one day be able to use robot caddies to play on those same fairways.

Course at a Glance:

  • 9-hole, par 32 course
  • Total length of 2,300 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 62.4 from the back tees

Designed with the input of former US Ryder Cup team captain and 1983 PGA Championship winner Hal Sutton, Olde Oaks Golf Club’s 27-hole golf course weaves through 34 acres of wooded terrain teeming with ponds and streams. All three 18-hole combinations span more than 7,000 yards from the farthest tees, though the course’s open fairways offer plenty of space for golfers to unsheathe their driver or airdrop golf balls from remote-control helicopters. Though all three nine-hole layouts showcase plenty of natural hazards that add challenge to rounds, the Cypress and Meadow courses prominently feature ponds and streams, including difficult forced carries on both Meadow’s seventh and eight holes and Cypress’s fourth.

Before rounds, golfers can warm up at Olde Oaks Golf Club’s recently revamped driving range and head to The Grille at Olde Oaks after the round’s final putt and strut to enjoy the social trappings of a full-service bar, burgers, and two televisions.

Designed by renowned course architect Joe Lee, Squirrel Run Golf Club’s 27-hole course incorporates clusters of scenic trees, babbling waterways, immaculate fairways, and smooth, Champions grass greens. Players can fine-tune their swings before hitting the links with a regimen of 10 one-hour clinics, where one of Squirrel Run Golf Club’s PGA-certified aces demystifies the golf swing for small classes with their profound knowledge of golf mechanics and subtle use of hypnotic putter pendulums. Each of Squirrel Run’s three nine-hole courses feature harrowing water hazards on most holes that place a high premium on confident shots and deft club selection. Players loop any 18-hole combination of the 27-hole labyrinth, playing to a maximum length of 6,782 yards when combining the Steeple and Woods course. With five tee options, the treacherous monolith graciously caters to players of all abilities and golfers who insist on playing with bocce balls.

Pelican Point merges British-style golf with Louisiana panache on a recently improved facility that houses two championship golf courses and two practice ranges. Built on 450 acres of a retired sugar-cane farm, the semiprivate golf club houses many obstacles, including wide bunkers, shot-blocking trees, and a wormhole that spits hapless golfers onto yard 100 of the driving range. Duos putt with precision on the championship-bermuda-grass greens of Pelican Point's premiere course, The Links, which enhances aim with up to 6,931 driving yards and a water hazard on nearly every hole. Golfers can also tee off at The Lakes course, which thwarts crooked shots with doglegs that meander through native Louisiana wildlife and wildflowers. Pelican Point observes a strict dress code at both courses, which requires clothing designed specifically for golf, such as collared shirts, golf-length shorts, and plaid brass knuckles.

Lions and tigers lurk on the glowing murals of Wildcat Station’s jungle-themed, black-light miniature-golf course, where balls roll toward nine challenging holes. More competition flanks the greens at the arcade, where 8 balls sink into the pool table’s pockets, pucks ricochet against the sides of the air-hockey table, and virtual races commence at video-game stations. Postgame birthday celebrations commence in the mirror-lined party area with pizza and soda feasts. Though it accommodates group or special events seven days a week, Wildcat Station typically closes on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the school year so youngsters can catch up on their geometry homework and gain an advantage on the seventh hole.
