Detailed description of City Park Golf Course

City Park Golf Course is a Public, 9 hole golf course located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

City Park Golf Course first opened for play in 1926. The course was designed by Tom Bendelow.

City Park Golf Course was Baton Rouge's first municipal golf course. This 25 acre, nine-hole course is notable for its natural beauty, mature trees, lake vistas, small bayou, and elevated terrain that varies by as much as 25 feet.

After renovations in 2007, Historic City Park Golf Course now features four par-3 holes and five par-4 holes. 

A quaint Pro Shop within the Clubhouse that also houses the Baton Rouge Art Gallery, is available to provide you with service and golf supplies.

City Park Golf Course is a different-than-usual venue for south Louisiana with stately oak trees and well-defined elevations and hills.

Purple tees: par-32, 2,300 yards

After many years of decline and neglect, this classic Thomas Bendelow gem is witnessing a renaissance due to the efforts of Mr. Jack Terry and pro Danny Simmineaux. Many problems have been addressed with regard to drainage, and the greens rival ANY course in the area. Quite simply, the course is again very playable....fairways are lush. If you haven't played City Park recently....Take another look!

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

Over the many years, I believe the staff has made this historic 9 holer playable. The lack of electric cart paths .....over time....continue to totally ruin the fairways, and this is a constant struggle. It should be a waking course only. The introduction of "Foot Golf" (kicking soccer balls to these gigantic holes) only adds to the chaos known as City Park Golf course.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, More than a field, but less than a golf course, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
