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.

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...
