Carter Plantation is located near Hammond, about 45 minutes from New Orleans, and is part of an upscale residential real estate development with cottages for overnight accommodations available. It's part of the Louisiana Audubon Golf Trail as well as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.
The course was designed by David Toms, and plays to 7,104 yards from the back tees, 74.4/140, course/slope ratings with three shorter tees. The course is an interesting and challenging design with 86 bunkers, water on 8 holes, and tree lined fairways, a quiet environment seemingly out in the country. The course winds through pine wooded areas, and isolated-there are only two holes on the back nine which run parallel to each other. Very challenging from the tips which add a few difficult forced carries off the tee, but playable from the other sets of tees depending on your ability.
