Abita Springs Golf & Country Club
Fun track on the North Shore
Fun track, fast greens, but not much of a club house. (Of course I did not go to hang out in the club house so that did not matter) The lay out is a little difficult to follow, hopefully you will pair up with a local. Tee boxes were nice, fair ways in great shape but those darn greens were deceptively fast...I don't want to count how many times I was on the green in regulation and three putted. (but I still had a blast) If you are in the New Orleans area of the north shore of lake Pontchartrain give this track a run, just be ready to three put your great round away.

Pace Of Play
This course is full of very inexperienced golfers and no martial to regulate. It gets jammed up frequently, so pack a lunch and a few of your favorite beverages - you'll be there a while!
Overall it's a great course for the price.

Watch out for hole 18
Greens hard and tough. Fairways could use some rain, but that's not the courses fault. 18 has a tree directly in line from the blue tees, which makes an interesting tee shot.
Expect to pair up if you come in on GN. They have a posted sign. Doesn't bother me, as I enjoy laying with others, but keep that in mind.

Away from the city and suburban sprawl
If you prefer to play in between houses you will not like this course.
This course has plenty of wildlife, such as rabbits, fox, egrets, hawks, falcon, etc.
Course is in average condition. Only one green with bad issues.

Getting Your Money's Worth
Course was in good condition given that it was cart path only. Had rained quite a lot previous days. Pace of play was very good. Very good value for money, weekend play. Recommended course.

Course is not being well maintained. A few years back this course was excellently maintained, and greens were pristine. Unfortunately, they have let it slip. Very hot day, and cold water was scarce, bottom of bucket at 1:00 PM. On a Saturday, only moderate crowd, which helped pace of play; but, will not lead
to much success for the course and speaks to the
condition. I hope they make a comeback.
