Santa Maria Golf Club
Great Afternoon Round at Santa Maria
The weather was awesome and the course was in great shape. Not many people out, so I was able to play at my own pace. They have recenlty added another set of tees between the white tees and the ladies tees for those that need them. The greens rolled true as ever and I can't wait to get back out there.

A good course with a decent price
This golf course is usually in okay condition. It has its moments where it isn't in great shape but can also be amazing at times. The price is just slightly steep for a public golf course, in my opinion. Overall, a good golf experience in Baton Rouge.

Decent course, good conditions, but RTJ design?
The description says that Robert Trent Jones designed the course. I have trouble with that statement, because, to me, it didn't look or feel like his designs. The course is a good course that is well kept and playable by all levels of golfer. The practice facility needs a little work. Overall, a good choice for the Baton Rouge area.

After all the rain we've had, the course is in pretty good condition. The greens are very nice, rolling true, but the overall speed was slower than the practice green. Overall, an enjoyable afternoon on a very nice course.

The only negative was 24 hours earlier over an inch of rain fell. The sand traps had standing water and some of the fairways had standing water. But most of the course was still in great condition.

great course, staff less than friendly
Great bang for your buck with Santa Maria at this price, but the staff did not seem pleased that I had booked with golfnow.com. half the course was closed due to standing water and the staff didn't want to give us a rain check, no matter because golf now.com was helpful and accommodating as always.

A good challenge
Good challenge for the 12-18 handicap player. Good, fast greens, forgiving fairways.

Awesome Course! I'm from Georgia and every time I come to Baton Rouge, I play this course. I has great greens and the course is challenging from every set of tees for all levels of golfers. I love the finishning hole (#18). Reached in two from 200 across the water to 8 feet above the hole. Just missed eagle on the lip and tapped in for birdie!

This course has good practice facilities: Driving range, chipping/bunker green, 2 putting greens.
For the money, you can't beat this course. It is always kept in good condition. Drainage is a problem after heavy rains, but other than that, the course is great.

Good Public Course
SM is a good public course that needs more maintance because of the frequency of play. Otherwise a good value and fun.

Baton Rouge's Best
The course is in excellent shape and usually is year round. It is challenging for all levels of play, yet forgiving at the same time. The greens are great, will hold your ball and roll very well. The only thing I would change is the speed of the greens. If you are looking for a fun course with incredible scenery, you will not be disappointed with Santa Maria. I try to play about once a week and would play the course everyday if I could. Only negative is that beverage cart is not being used.

Gets a lot of play. A few bunkers needed more sand.

My favorite course in South Baton Rouge
The service is second to none and the course is always in excellent condition. One of the best practice areas in Louisiana.

Excellent muni - love to play it.
The front nine is much harder than the back nine. There are several water features that promise to drown any price range of golf ball.

Well maintained, challenging course.
Great course for a great price. Fairways are always plush and the greens are always smooth and fast. The course design is challenging, but not impossible. I'm proud to call it my home course.

Greens and fairways were in good shape. Fun & challenging course, would play again.

Fun, quality course for a great price
I played on a weekday for $25 with a cart, a great value for a great public course of this caliber. The course offers a good layout, with a variety of challenging, but fair holes. With a little more focus on course maintenance, Santa Maria would easily compete with the premier courses in the Baton Rouge area. Even with the current conditions, I rate the course in my top 5 for the courses near Baton Rouge, behind University Club (Baton Rouge), Baton Rouge Country Club, Country Club of Louisiana (Baton Rouge), and Copper Mill (Zachary). The top three courses in this list are private courses, so in my book, Santa Maria is the best public course in Baton Rouge. You will not be disappointed with booking a tee time at Santa Maria using GolfNow.com.
