When I think of Louisiana, the first place that springs to mind is New Orleans. I think of Bourbon Street, balconies, and beads. I can taste the gumbo and beignets served with chicory coffee. I can hear the jazz notes floating in the air, and the beat of feet tapping away to a Zydeco tune, but when it comes to golf, there is one course that is located right in the historic district.
The Golf Course at Audubon Park is only minutes from downtown New Orleans and the only golf course in America accessible by streetcar. This executive 18-hole layout opened in 1898 and has been ranked by Golfweek in the Top 50 Municipal Courses. The layout meanders through 81 acres of centuries-old oak trees with five lakes surrounded by a bustling pedestrian-friendly park. The course is in excellent shape, with plenty of bunkering and a true test for your short game.
