The Tournament Players Club of Louisiana is located just south of downtown New Orleans across the river, was designed by Pete Dye, opened in 2004. In what was really just flat river bottom land, Dye created a 7,520-yard, par-72, slope 138 tour quality layout from the tournament tees. The course is routed around on three sides by drainage canals, the fairways through stands of cypress trees, and the natural mitigation areas. The course has five ponds in play and 103 bunkers, 69 of which are Dye's patented pot bunkers. Fantastic practice range, double sided, with short game practice area. Bermuda fairways that are over-seeded annually with Rye. The Bermuda greens putt to an average green speed of 10 on the stimpmeter, or so. Great experience, but you will pay for it, probably the highest green fees in New Orleans by far.
