Abbeville Country Club -- I've played worse!
Review by: R J B This course is in need of an overhaul - and it's getting one. Under new management, the course is starting to shape up. Better drainage, cart path extensions, even refurbished club house. All this adds up to great potential. The course itself is rather unremarkable - no sand bunkers, miss the green long and your in a heap of trouble (OB) on many holes, small greens and fairways. Bayou winding its way through the middle of the course. Pace of play is relaxed - if you want to work on your game, there is usually no one pushing from behind. Worth it - yes, but there are much better places to play within 20 minutes (and a few more dollars).

Bluffs on Thompson Creek, The -- Wow!!!
Review by: John One of the most difficult courses I've played in a long time. We played from the tips-7100 yds, and it was all we could handle. It's setting is in an area called The Felicianas. An Arnold Palmer designed course, that uses the natural contours of the land to flow through beautiful old growth forests of live oaks and pine. Amazing elevation changes (*for Louisiana)that makes one second guess club selection.The greens are "Champion" grass and are extremely fast and difficult to read because of slopes, and the subtle nature of the few flat spots out there. We had no trouble getting on, and the pace of play was great-just under 4 hrs. I would highly recommend this course, it's the best "open to public" golf in the state, that I have played. Not to mention just how wonderful St. Franisville is. This whole area is a diamond in the rough...
