Looking forward to our 10th(?) New Year's trip to N.O. No one raves about N.O. golf so I'm thinking about a 2-for-1 plan: a day trip to Baton Rouge which should make 20+ golf courses 'easy' to get to with a rental car. Not looking forward to the internet research so I'm hoping you folks can short cut that task with your peosonal experience. We suck at golf, so we're not necessarily looking for a pro course. I'm hoping for a course that reminds me I'm in LA, not New England. To be honest, any course would suffice, but I'd love to hear your favorite course between NO & BR and why it's YOUR favorite. The "best" course for us would give us the "best bang for our buck", I'll try to decide between renting clubs or shipping my own. I'd appreciate any advice on YOUR preference between renting or shipping also. THANKS!!!!
