Abita Springs Golf & Country Club
An Improved Abita Springs GC
This was the first time I have played at Abita in about 2 years. I started about 12:30 and there was no one in front of me so I was able to finish in 3 hours. Of course it was very hot and humid at that time of the day but was able to get a deep discount on the green fee which made for an enjoyable day. The greens were slow but very smooth and consistent. There were only two greens that had some issues but the pin placements were in locations that made the issues a non issue. I was pleasantly surprised at the condition of the course. It was dry, no dead spots in the fairways, cut well; overall it was in very good condition compared to years past.

This is a hidden gem. Good course, good layout and great conditions minus one or two greens under repair. Had a painfully slow four in front, but course marshall was there to speed things up. Some course knowledge will help... Some blind landing areas. Overall good track.

Not a place to have fun
I have been to the Abita Golf Course several times. It is pretty expensive compared to other golf courses in the area. The other courses from Robert to Slidell, LA will give you a much better experienceas well as value.
This is why.. (1) If you slow up people (even if there is another group ahead of you) the retirees that play there everyday will literally yell and curse at you. They believe they own the course because one or two actually work there. However, the last time was so bad, on the 4th of July, they bought us all beer after they cursed us out to move up. I guess they felt stupid after we had to wait on them the rest of the back 9. (2) The greens might be the worst in St. Tammany Parish.
Overall, I would not go there if you are trying to have a fun time and drink a couple beers in the mean time or you have 3 or more golfers.

Good Course to Play
Enjoy playing this course, fun to play but can bite you if you are not careful.

Difficult course, but a couple of drivable par 4's give you a good opportunity at Birdie, or even Eagle. Course conditions were good, however Friday's heavy rain left some areas of the course wet and difficult to play. The course appears to be very well maintained. Great course for the money. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will be back to play this course in the near future.

18 holes for $20
Good course when you only pay $20/ round. Does need a little work

AKA Goat Ranch
Poor greens, large bare spots. Fairways had little to no grass.
