Come experience the courses of David Toms, Arnold Palmer, Pete Dye, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and the most magnificent designer of all, nature! There are 15 courses that make up Louisiana’s Audubon Golf Trail, which was named for naturalist/artist John James Audubon who, enchanted by the natural beauty of Louisiana, painted a number of his famous bird studies here. Coincidentally, all the courses on the trail are members of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary for Golf Courses, a program dedicated to protecting the environment and preserving the natural heritage of the game of golf.
On the Lafayette leg of the Audubon Golf Trail is the Wetlands Golf Course opened in April 2006. This course was designed by architect Frank Burandt to showcase the region’s many lakes and wetland areas, it also features abundant native grasses and wildflowers. The challenge of the golf course presents itself with well-bunkered greens and water hazards that affect 11 of its 18 holes.
The Wetlands accommodates all levels of players with five tees ranging from 7,300 yards at the longest and just over 5,000 yards at the shortest. The TifDwarf© greens are smooth rolling, providing a test for every golfer. Wind is a factor on this golf course’s #9 and #18 holes, which feature a double green that ends at the clubhouse for dramatic finishes.
