Detailed description

Metairie Country Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Metairie, Louisiana.

Metairie Country Club first opened for play in 1925. The course was designed by Seth Raynor. The course was restored in the first decade of the 21st Century by Ron Forse.

The course replicates many famous old style holes and features. There is the Punchbowl green on the 361-yard 4th; and the Eden, the 193-yard 7th modeled after the 11th at the Old Course at St. Andrews. Raynor had specified the construction of elevated greens protected by noses, slopes and mounds.

Raynor borrowed from the Old Course’s Road hole, with its menacing bunker and strongly pitched green, not once but twice—at the 505-yard 9th and the 372-yard 13th, known as Short Road. He also included a man-made pond on National, the 398-yard 10th. The water overlays perfectly with the outline of the vast waste area on the 10th hole of the National Golf Links.
