TPC Louisiana, site of the PGA Tour’s Zurich Classic of New Orleans this week, is the top-rated public-access golf course in Louisiana, based on the votes of Golfweek’s Best raters.
Built by famed architect Pete Dye combined with consultation from PGA Tour players Steve Elkington and Kelly Gibson, the courses opened in 2004 in Avondale, just a short hop from New Orleans. Built through wetlands in the Mississippi River Delta, the layout has been the site of the PGA Tour’s Zurich Classic of New Orleans since 2005.
TPC Louisiana underwent a $2 million enhancement project in 2019 intended in large part to provide better playing conditions. The changes included re-grassing the greens with TifEagle Bermuda, changing the fairways to Celebration Bermuda and restoring all the pot bunkers to their original size.
