The Island Country Club, originally a Private course, is now semi-private. This 18 hole championship golf course is located in Plaquemine, Louisiana.
Mike Young was the course architect. The course opened for play in 2000.
Sweet! How else can you describe a championship golf course carved out of a sugar plantation? As a matter of fact, sugarcane still grows in the field next to The Island. This par 72-course is one of only six courses named initially by members of Louisiana's famed Audubon Golf Trail. This challenging course features 54 water elements, as well as Bayou Plaquemine and Bayou Jacob.

It's a sweet course in a tranquil setting.
