In the world of golf, few acronyms are held in the same regard as TPC. Comprising 32 PGA-level venues, the Tournament Players Club network stretches from coast to coast, hosting high-profile pro and senior tour events throughout the year with TPC Sawgrass even serving as the headquarters for the PGA itself. As the Big Easy's contribution to the lineup and a member of the faction that happen to be open to the public, TPC Louisiana does not disappoint. Pete Dye's 2004 design choreographs cypress and oak trees, five ponds, and more than 100 bunkers over 250 acres of the Mississippi River delta. As the permanent home of the PGA Tour’s annual Zurich Classic, the course is, of course, exceptionally long from the back tees––7,400 yards––but furnishes four additional sets of tees to make things easier on amateurs who refuse to cork their drivers.
As with all TPC venues, golf is but a part of the experience. Inside the 24,000 square-foot clubhouse, The TPC Grill couples southern hospitality with an ambiance of relaxed elegance, while luxury lockers provide a place for players to stash their Bourbon Street beads before teeing up on the course.
Xtreme Xperience was founded by a pair of car aficionados who understand the thrill of commanding a $253,000 piece of four-wheeled poetry in motion, like the Lamborghini LP560. They know that exaggerating the pronunciation of Porsche is only half as fun as horsewhipping its 530 horsepower from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.3 seconds. They realize that the Ferrari F430's supercharged Launch Control console button is too irresistible not to push coming out of every red light and into every dark, quiet, and hopefully vacant train tunnel. The smooth, spaceship-esque aluminum body shell of the Audi R8 makes them appreciate how discreet something like 782 rivets, 382 self-tapping screws, and more than 300 feet of welding can be. The people at Xtreme Xperience love supercars, and they love matchmaking them to other car enthusiasts who live to cruise across the great, oil-stained arteries of the American interstate-highway system.
All manner of motorized vehicles race down twists and turns at NOLA Motorsports Park’s 600-acre racing facility. Exotic racecars roar along an international-standard racetrack, whereas professional go-karts harness their speed on a smaller scale. Motorcycles join their four-wheeled cousins during regular bike races, as spectators look on jealously, yearning for the day when humans finally evolve wheels of their own.
