Featured Golf Course Review:
Tamahka Trails -- Weekend Excursion
Review by: Kent Albarado It's the offseason now and we've just returned from 27 holes at Tamahka Trails. The rate was very reasonable, service second to none and the course ... well this old cajun boy has never played a finer course in his life and may never still. The people made us feel as though we never left our home town. They treat you with kindness and respect, catering to your every whim. Let me tell you it was one of the very best golf outings I've ever had (and plan to have again). If you would like to experience golf as it should be ... try Tamahka Trails. You won't be disappointed. And by the way ... for a course this nice the seasonal rates are good also. See you there ...

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.
