Originally opened in 1902, Bayou Oaks Golf quickly developed into four courses: North, South, East, and West. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina caused a complete closure and rebuild to our courses. The first phase of the restoration resulted in The North Course reopening and 2008 and The South Course reopening in 2017.
As the premier golf course in New Orleans, located centrally in historic City Park, we pride ourselves on our deep history and revitalization. We aim to create the best golfing experience for locals and visitors alike as the only public 36-hole golf complex in New Orleans.
Designed by world-renowned golf course architect Rees Jones and Greg Muirhead of Rees Jones Inc., in association with Torre Design Consortium, the 18-hole course boasts 46 bunkers and features multiple tee locations. The par 72 course is designed to accommodate players of all levels from amateur to professional.
The North Course incorporates four sets of tees ranging in length from 5,740 yards at the tips to 4,300 yards from the Gold Tees. Water comes into play on eight of the eighteen holes, adding to the competitive nature of the course by making club and shot selection a key factor in the ability to score.
Due to a special event at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA), on Friday, December 2, the inbound entrance to Lelong Drive into City Park by the NOMA will be closed from 7AM to 7PM, in addition to surrounding streets, including Enrique Alferez Drive and Collins Diboll Circle.
