Detailed description of Gemstone Plantation Country Club, CLOSED 2014

Gemstone Plantation Country Club is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Franklinton, Louisiana.

Gemstone Plantation Country Club first opened its front nine holes to members in August of 1997, and the entire eighteen hole layout during the spring of 1998. The course was designed by James Ray Carpenter.

Gemstone Plantation Country Club Golf Course takes advantage of the hills in the area that allow changes in elevation. The design also includes numerous stately live oak trees in play. There is about a thirty-foot change in elevation throughout the course. About half the holes have water, but it really only comes into play on about six holes. One of the toughest holes is a par 3, which measures 170 yards from the back tees. This hole plays to an island green. Golfers will have an adequate target in the form of a 10,000-square foot island, which includes 6,000 to 7,000-square feet of putting surface. The course will offer a challenge for the scratch golfer, but will be enjoyable for any level player.

Blue Tees: par-72, 7,033 yards, 72.5 / 128

White Tees: par-72, 6,552 yards, 69.9 / 126

Red Tees: par-72, 5,327 yards, 69.3 / 120

The closed course was purchased by an out of state buyer in 2014. The course reopened for several months before again closing. The golf equipment was sold. It is most likely that the course will never again be reopened.

Great course. One of the best you can find for this area. Staff were friendly and polite. The course was in great shape considering the lack of rain we have had for the past couple of weeks. The fairways, tee boxes and greens were very nice. I really enjoyed playing this course and the quality of the course was great for the price.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Best course in the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
