New Orleans, LA
On a recent morning in New Orleans, cooler air moving from the North encountered the damp moist air of the Gulf, which created a wonderous fog. It encircled the massive live oaks of Audubon Park like a veil. It's easy to see why fog plays such a symbolic role in literature, for only the nearby is clear and in focus, while the distance is completely obscured. So, it is in life; we can see clearly the present, but the future is unknown. In this capture of one of the lagoons with surrounding trees on the Audubon Golf Course, the trees and their reflections appear ghostly in the distance.
This lavish New Orleans golf course combines over one hundred years of history with the latest in golf course design from Dennis Griffiths, featuring contoured Bermuda fairways, manicured Tif-Eagle greens, four lagoons and exquisite landscaping. Audubon boasts the metropolitan area's most immaculate and well-manicured greens and a dedicated grounds crew takes pride in keeping the grounds impeccably conditioned. The competitive, executive-18-hole course is a par 62, 4,220-yard layout set among hundred year-old oak trees that includes twelve par 3s, four par 4s, and two par 5s.
Strategically placed lagoons add difficulty to a course that received a 4-and-a-half star rating from Golf Digest. The magazine also voted Audubon the number one course of "Courses Over 100 Years Old" and one of the top public courses in Louisiana.
Audubon Park opened in 1898 and was the site of the 1884 World's Fair. Audubon Park Golf Course was the first property in the state of Louisiana to achieve certification through the Audubon International Signature Program and was designated as a Certified Silver Signature Sanctuary on July 22, 2004. This gorgeous New Orleans golf course was redesigned in 2001 and quickly became one of Southeast Louisiana's most prestigious golfing destinations
