Contraband Bayou Golf Club is located adjacent to the opulent L’Auberge du lac Casino Resort. Famed architect Tom Fazio was hired to design a resort style, links-feeling layout that he stretched out to over 7,077 yards. Given a relatively flat lowland marsh property to work with, he reportedly moved 400,000 cubic yards of earth to build a course that now encompasses eight lakes. GolfWeek Magazine has recommended it as one of the ‘Best Places to Play in Louisiana’ and in 2017 Golf Digest ranked it as the #9 ‘Best Golf Course in Louisiana’. I found it tame in comparison to most Fazio layouts but he has strategically placed the bunkers and water for maximum intimidation off the tee and on your approach shots.
18 holes with a GPS equipped cart ranges from $49 to $99USD depending on the time and day of the week.
