The Best Golf is in Lake Charles

Golf in Lake Charles features lush scenery and indigenous plants, making the courses picturesque backdrops with birds and other wildlife paying quick visits along the way! A pro tip is that playing the area's courses midweek can enhance your experience with more availability to get your desired tee time. Conveniently located halfway between Houston and Baton Rouge off Interstate 10, it's a quick trip for those who are looking for a relaxing game of golf year-round. Mallard Golf Club is the newest addition to the area which is a Scottish links-inspired design. Contraband Bayou Golf Course at L'Auberge and the Country Club at Golden Nugget are side-by-side courses, with the Chart House restaurant and clubhouse overlooking the course at Golden Nugget. The Max at The National Golf Club of Louisiana has scrumptious Louisiana cuisine with a new clubhouse and pro shop attached in case you need gear! Affordable accommodations are in close proximity to the courses and locally owned restaurants with live music highlighting Southwest Louisiana's culture, traditions, and flavors are abundant.
