City Park’s newest golf course includes a host of brand new designs, greens and features, while incorporating a few features from the two courses destroyed by Katrina.
Bayou Oaks South, which opens to the public April 21, plays in a returning 9-hole routing that runs south toward Harrison Avenue, then returning north to the clubhouse. The back 9 plays along the routing that used to define the back 9 of City Park West golf course, which was severely damaged in the hurricane.
Twelve holes include natural bayous, just like the historic courses, and 100-year-old oak trees line each hole around the 72-par course.
