Ellendale Country Club -- Ellendale - The secret hidden in the bayous
Review by: Jerry Erceg - Member The course is very well maintained. They have a 90 degree policy for carts and there are monetary penalties for violating the policy. There is a first class restaurant and also a 19th hole. The same kitchen provides a varied menu for both. There are no bad lies on the fairways unless you catch a divot (most are sand filled by members). The course was shut down for a little over a year and redesigned. Drainage was put in and a sprinkler system for the fairways as well as the greens. Elevated tee boxes and moguls all along a lot of the fairways are also new additions. The course can be especially challenging if you do not keep the ball in the fairway. The rough is kept low, but the trees will reach out and grab your ball as it goes by. Enjoy the course, we do.

Belle Terre Country Club -- Don't Waist Your Time
Review by: Ken Avoid this course at all cost unless you are looking for livestock. A friend and I played this course Monday, June 12, 2004. Wished we hadn't. When I called the day before for course conditions the Club Pro said the course and greens were in good shape. He said the course was drying out and would be 90 degrees on Monday. He even compared his course to LSU's University Club (ha, ha, ha...not even in the same ballpark.) When we arrived it looked like the grounds keepers were bailing hay. The fairways were very thick and deep, the roughs were too deep (hadn't been cut in quite some time). All of the bunkers were washed out, some had mud on the bottoms others were still full of water, one of the bunkers even had two dead fish in it. The greens were very bumpy. There was a dead duck on the cart path between holes one and two. When we arrived we were told carts on path, but we played it 90 degrees anyway and left no ruts or any sign that we drove onto the fairways. I wouldn't have been so upset if the Pro would have at least been honest and told us to try his course on another day, after his crews catch up on course maintenance. When we expressed our concerns the Pro just said his course is a nice one. Just be HONEST. I won't be back again and neither will any of my golf buddies.
