|Yelp.com||4 out of 5 stars. Only 3 reviews, two were good, one was bad. In general, the course is a good value. The course isn’t too hard to play, but does have hidden water hazards that can really mess up a game if you make a bad shot. The course is well manicured and kept up. The customer service is fair to good, but the one bad review was about poor management/ customer service and miscommunication between staff and the customer.|
|GolfAdvisor.com||3.5 out of 5 stars. Out of 51 reviews. The overall review is that the course is okay, good, fair, nice and a good value for the money. Many like the rustic, far-away-from-the-busy-city vibe that it has as well as the wildlife. It’s a fun course, but does have some sneaky challenges that you have to watch out for. The bad reviews were mostly about the course not being in great condition, feeling like although it’s not very expensive – there are still better courses, and that it gets very crowded, especially with inexperienced golfers.|

North Course at City Park
|Golf Advisor||2 out of 5 stars, 22 reviews. Mostly poor reviews due to the course undergoing renovations and having temporary greens. Very cheap to play here but the course is currently in such bad shape that it’s not worth it. The temporary greens are spray painted on the fairway which is upsetting to some people. Not for skilled golfers but more for beginners or average golfers.|
|3.6 out of 5 stars. Decent and good starter course.|
|Golf Link||4 out of 5 stars. Old reviews before whatever renovation is going on now. Sounds like a small, affordable fun and easy course to play.|

It’s safe to assume that once the renovations are complete, the course will be back to normal and full of improvements.
|Yelp||3 out of 5 stars, 5 reviews. Huge course, don’t walk it. Not too challenging but not easy either. Fun to play for the money. In fair shape but not great.|

Oak Harbor Golf Club is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars, based on reviews from Yelp, Golf Advisor, Golf Course Ranking.com, Facebook, Google, and GolfLink.com.

|Golf Advisor||3 out of 5 stars, 16 reviews. Overall positive reviews for the course and amenities. No concessions apparently. The course is an old style course and has challenging greens. The staff works hard to keep the course playable when there’s a lot of rain, but sometimes due to the all of the rain and weather, the course can get in bad shape. However, many would come back and enjoyed golfing there. Wide fairways and elevated greens.|
|4 out of 5 stars, 16 reviews. One poor review about having to wait a long time and the price.|

Riverlands Golf and Country Club
|Golf Advisor||4 out of 5 stars, 32 reviews. Reviewers agree that the layout features lots of variety, the fairways are in good shape and greens are fast. Some bunkers are packed down with dirt and need upgraded however. Most enjoy the course, the layout, and the fast greens. One of the best affordable places to play in NOLA area. Well-maintained, great for beginners, old style course. Forgiving layout if you slice or hook a drive; for many holes your ball will just end up on another fairway.|

|4 out of 5 stars. Majority positive reviews, course in good shape, fun, would come back.|

|4.6 out of 5 stars, 56 reviews. Mostly positive reviews about course being in good shape and fun to play. A few bad reviews about the greens being in horrible shape, half the course under construction and being a waste of money.

|Yelp||3 out of 5 stars, 2 reviews. One review said it was one of the better courses in the area, the other said it was only average on every level. Also stressed that it is the worst country club in the area. Scorecards are cheap, course staff is rude, golfers don’t repair ball damage on greens.|
|Golf Advisor||3 out of 4 stars. 38 reviews. The course is a classic old course with holes tightly bunched, which would make for an easy walk. Not a lot of elevation changes, but the holes take some fairly interesting turns. Good use of water and bunkering to bring in some challenges. Overall, the course is a fun play.
Most reviewers enjoyed the course but say that it’s overpriced. Also recommend bringing own lunch and snacks because food is overpriced.
Well conditioned course for the season. Usually, in the winter time you get dead grass and patches. Not in this case. Still not worth regular price though.
