Carter Plantation is home to PGA championship and Louisiana native David Toms' first signature design and the course is the recent recipient of Golf Magazine's "Top 10 Courses You Can Play". The spectacular 18-hole, 7,000-plus yard, par-72 golf course winds through three distinct Louisiana landscapes - live oak flats, cypress wetlands, and upland pine forests.

The visually stunning daily fee course has a Louisiana Golf Association slope rating of 140 and a course rating of 74.4 from the championship tees. Both the front and back nines consist of two par-3s, five par-4s, and two par-5s. Eighty-six strategically placed bunkers offer surprise and challenge to the golfer. Carpeted with Tifeagle on the greens and Tifsport on the rolling fairways, each of the holes offers four or five tee positions, with water coming into play on eleven of the holes. Great effort has been made to preserve the plantation's native wildlife habitats, and indigenous grasses and plants have been extensively incorporated into the landscaping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth a drive if you're visiting NOLA I was really impressed with the layout, conditions and scenery of this course. I played the TPC and English Turn. Both are different style layouts but neither was any more challenging or in better condition than Carter's. If I was a golfer visiting NOLA and wanted a $60 course to play, this should be on the top of your list. It's about an hour drive from town but still not bad when one considers the overall value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Twilight Rate Ripoff Me and my golf partner went to Carter to play on there Twilight special of 35.00. 5 holes into the round weather stop play and never let up. Went to pro shop and was told there are no rain checks with twilight rate. To offer nothing after 5 holes is really just wrong and bad business , wonder why golf play is down with practices like this. I would advise people to stay away from this place. August 21, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by Another great day at Carter Carter plantation has always been a favorite. Rolling fairways and smooth greens are some of the best in south Louisiana, combined with a friendly knowledgable staff. Well worth the scenic drive and reasonable greens fees every time. April 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very challenging course. The sand is very aggressive. I had a great experience with this course and will be going back quite often. April 3, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by Golf on Lundi Gras I play this course about twice a year. Mileage from my home (40 miles) and green fee price ($69) make it prohibitive for me to play anymore than that. On this occasion, there was a deep discount on the green fee so I took advantage even though the temperatures were in the upper 40s with winds blowing around 15 mph from the NNW. They had just started aerating the fairways so this made it less than ideal. Other than that, the greens were in good shape, especially after such a harsh winter. Most of the time, this is one of the best courses I have played anywhere. The normal green fee is really a bargain for the quality of the golf course. I think it is every bit as good as TPC Louisiana, if not better. You get free range balls with your green fee, the food is good, there is a snack bar and restrooms near the 10th tee box so you don't have to go all the way back to the club house before starting the back nine. The course drains quickly after a hard rain so you don't have to worry about a wet course. If I could afford it on a weekly basis and I lived a little closer, this would be my course of choice.
