Nicholson Dr
Baton Rouge, LA 70808, United States

This facility includes an 18-hole course and a pitch & putt layout, owned and operated by Louisiana State University. However, the course is in danger of closing; the university is reviewing how they use this 127-acre parcel of land in their master plan. Among the possibilities being discussed are new parking lots for Tiger Stadium and a new library. University officials have refused to confirm their plans.

Access to the course is from Gourrier Avenue, west of Nicholson Drive. The public walking rates here are $18 on weekdays, $23 on weekends and holidays (carts are $14/person).

Course & greens are pretty much always in good shape. Enjoy playing there, though as others you can get behind slow play pretty often.

I played here on 8/29 and the course was in really good shape. Greens were slow, and the fairways played average speed. Traps were in pretty good shape with almost all being raked.

Not many trees here, but there is a ditch that intersects a few holes as well as ponds that lay at the boundaries on the front.

On a side note, my golf cart was incredibly fast. ;)

This course was built on an old cow field and plays that way still. Last time I went on a weekend they accepted groups of 5+. Got stuck behind a group of 6. Took us 45 minutes to get to Hole #2. Total time for 18 holes = almost 6 hours. Way overpriced, no scenery and boring layout. I like Dumas better than this course.....
