Very challenging course. The sand is very aggressive.
I had a great experience with this course and will be going back quite often.

Worth the Trip
Carter is a nice road trip. Once you are there, definitely worth it…...

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.

Carter Plantation plays true to form
Cold weather and rain the prior weekend did not affect the quality of play at Carter Plantation.

Disappointed to say the least.
Due to a family issue our 4th had to drop out and left us with just a 3some. We were still charged for the 4th even though he didn't show up. The staff explained there was nothing they could so when obviously they run their business and they can due as they please whether it's related to golfnow.com or not. They gave a rain check for the extra greens fees they charged but at $70 this course is average at best and is an hrs driving distance from Baton Rouge and an hour an a half from New Orleans. Obviously the saying "the customer is always right" does not adhere to carter plantation. Will not recommend this course to anyone.

Best course in Southeast Louisiana
Have played all over southeast Louisiana, both private and public. I would rate this as my top course. It was perfectly maintained, fairways and greens were perfect, rough was the proper length and mowed evenly. For $60 you cannot beat it

First time playing
With very little rain lately, this course was excellent. Staff was great and course was easy to navigate. Greens were true and rolled well. May make this my home course.

great conditions, needs small details
The course was in great shape. Fairways were in good condition, bunkers were raked - playable (this is rarely the case with most area courses). The greens ran a bit faster than most I've played around south LA. Lots of hard slopes away from greens and fairways into O.B. or dense hazards, which made it pretty challenging.
The only disappointing thing was that there were no pin sheets / location or any type of hole numbers / markers. Seems for a nicer course that there would be more way-finding measures.
