Detailed description
Atchafalaya Golf Course is a public 18-hole golf course located in Patterson, Louisiana.

Atchafalaya Golf Course opened for play in 2005. The course was designed by Robert Von Hagge.

The Atchafalaya Golf Course at Idlewild is surrounded by the rich wildlife and incredible beauty found only in the heart of the Atchafalaya Basin. The 7,533-yard course contains five lakes and ten native wetland areas that encompass nearly 40 acres of this 175-acre layout. More than a half million yards of native soil were used to develop dramatic elevations, creating breathtaking vistas.

The 18-hole course features five sets of tees-each named after wildlife native to the basin-large fairways and generous pin placements. Each of the 18 championship holes is named for a cultural feature within the Basin where over 40 species of indigenous flora thrive. The course also includes a complete practice facility. The raised Acadian-style cottage clubhouse opened in 2007.
