Home of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans since 2007, this Pete Dye design exudes a flair of TPC Sawgrass with some more low-profile design features like hidden bunkers and green complexes that offer options on approach. Dye had help from fellow tour pros Steve Elkington and New Orleans native Kelly Gibson on this 7,400 yard par-72 layout. Consistently ranked in the top 10 of Golf Digest’s Best in State, TPC Lousiana offers a nice mix of challenging short and long holes.

Lakewood Golf Club
New Orleans, LA
The PGA Tour played the New Orleans Open at Lakewood from 1963 to 1988, with names like Player, Nicklaus, Trevino, Watson, Casper, Ballesteros and Crenshaw all winning at this public track. In addition to this PGA Tour history, the course also hosted the 1966 U.S. Senior Women's Amateur. A recent redesign has modernized the course, which now includes several unique bunkers, including the flame-shaped traps at the 18th, designed to pay tribute to New Orleans firefighters.

Bayou Oaks At City Park - North Course: North Course
Bayou Oaks is home to two courses just five miles away from downtown New Orleans. The South course, which tips out at 7,302 yards, was renovated in 2017 by Rees Jones and Greg Muirhead. The shorter North Course, with four sets of tees maxing out at 5,740 yards, isn't a pushover despite its lack of length--water comes into play on eight of the 18 holes.
