The Cajun Coast's Premiere Golf Experience
Enjoy Louisiana's most unique golf experience, with championship design surrounded by the wildlife and incredible beauty found only in the heart of the Atchafalaya Basin. The Atchafalaya at Idlewild is as close as you can get to Louisiana's Atchafalaya Basin while enjoying a spectacular round of golf. From a quiet retreat to complete tournament hosting, our unique combination of pristine course and natural preservation makes The Atchafalaya one of Louisiana's most memorable rounds of golf.
Opened in 2006 and quickly regarded as the ''must play'' in Louisiana, The Atchafalaya offers the perfect opportunity for a golf getaway or complete corporate outing.
Celebrated designers, Von Hagge, Smelek, and Baril recognized for Doral, LaCosta and the TPC at Woodlands, crafted notable features including dramatic elevations with spectacular views of the Atchafalaya Basin. Each of the 18 championship holes is named for a cultural feature within the Basin where over 40 species of indigenous flora thrive.
The Atchafalaya is appreciated by golfers of all skill levels for its exceptional course conditioning and expansive greens, including the unique ''common green,'' shared by holes #9 and #18 overlooking our clubhouse.
The 7,533 yard, public course is surrounded only by nature, with Kemper Williams Park onsite and features:
* Five sets of tees
* A complete practice facility
* Pro line rental clubs
* GPS carts
Our dress code requires collared shirts and no jeans on golf course. However jeans are fine in our clubhouse restaurant.
