As the region’s headquarters of professional golf, TPC Louisiana offers an unparalleled experience of the sport in the area. The club boasts a renowned championship golf course with 18 professional-level holes, meticulously maintained to the PGA TOUR’s highest standards of operation.
Master architect Pete Dye designed the course, working in conjunction with TOUR players Steve Elkington and Kelly Gibson – a New Orleans native. The course is located in Avondale, just 15 miles from the bustle of the “Big Easy” and Bourbon Street. TPC Louisiana was named “the #4 best upscale public golf course” by Golf Digest magazine when it opened back in 2004. TPC Louisiana is consistently included in GolfWeek’s “Best Courses You Can Play” each year (Golf Digest 2011 Top 100 public Golf Course).
The golf course, which is part of the Audubon Golf Trail, stretches over 250 acres of wetlands across along the Mississippi River delta. True to Pete Dye’s style, the golf course features over 100 bunkers, including several large waste bunkers on the first six holes of the back nine. TPC Louisiana boasts a series of short and compelling par-4 holes to balance. The five sets of tees, ranging from a fair 5,121 yard from the women’s tees all the way back to the 7,400 PGA TOUR tees, offers golfers of all skill levels a great blend of challenge and playability.
The signature hole on the golf course is the par-5, 18th hole. Water is in play for the entire right side of the hole, making for a challenging finish for even the most seasoned golfer.
TPC Louisiana is the permanent host of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Louisiana's premier tournament and the PGA TOUR's annual stop in the state.
