There are few cities in the United States with the historic, cultural and culinary significance of New Orleans. Lakewood Golf Club also shares a part of this rich heritage as the home of New Orleans’ first PGA tournaments. Lakewood was designed by award-winning golf course architect Ron Garl. The 18th hole has been upgraded while preserving the character of the original golf course. The 444-yard “Fire in the Hole” sets a new standard for bunkers. The new 18th hole includes traps in the shape of flames set in red sand, a tribute to New Orleans Firefighters. It is the only one of its kind in the golfing world.
Lakewood is a 7,002 yard, par 72 golf course with modernized fairways, tee boxes and greens. Tournament participants will enjoy the new improvements to an old favorite. It also offers the area’s only short game practice facility. A 2,500 square foot temporary club house offers indoor dining, covered patio and golf shop.
