Spotlight: Swing Easy, Big or Small, at Stonebridge Golf Club in New Orleans
We can not get enough of New Orleans: the food … the people … the festivals …
And what about the clean fields! The local golf scene is teeming with a neat collection of layouts in the city and another collection on the West Bank.
Quick Tourist Tip: The “West Bank” is actually east of New Orleans’ central business district and is located on the west bank of the meandering Mississippi River. (it is not the only local language needed to get around in NoLa).
One of the best golf courses in the New Orleans market is Stonebridge Golf Club in Gretna. Not only does this semi-private club have an affordable 18-hole championship course, but also a 9-hole course, The Harvey Course, suitable for beginners and fast, comfortable laps.
As we are on our way, you can expect a good dose of water hazards throughout the round. Below them is the par-3 5th hole, just 141 meters from the back toe, but it requires a skill to be transported across a dam to the shallow green.
The Harvey Nine, meanwhile, is a par 35 layout of just over 3,000 yards.
The golf courses at Stonebridge have received a bit of TLC over the past few years, which has been highlighted by a bunker refurbishment project.
“Game pace was great,” wrote Golf Advisor reviewer.HalSimoneaux. “The track was in very good condition. The greens played hard and fast. Putts became very true. ”
The review also thanks the staff for the measures taken to ensure a safe environment of COVID-19 on the track and throughout the clubhouse.
Speaking of great vibes, Stonebridge is stepping up its game. They host Cornhole tournaments every Monday night (public welcome!) And seniors can participate in league events every Tuesday and Thursday morning. And the clubhouse is currently undergoing extensive upgrades. The grill, golf shop and ballroom are all in the midst of an upgrade that will lead to an improved food and beverage menu, and a swimming pool will be added by spring 2021.
