City Park Golf Courses at a time prior to the hurricanes, consisted of four golf courses in the complex locally and preferably called South, East, West, and North and officially named Little, Wisner, Championship, and Lakeside respectively. In the 1990s the entire City Park Golf Course was renamed Bayou Oaks Golf Complex. Since the courses have been around since 1902, it is important to know these names for reference to the future of golf in New Orleans city park.
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina destroyed the golf complex. In 2009, the north course was rebuilt and the driving range reopened. Today's 18-hole course offers a convenient and affordable round of golf, as well as a 36-stall driving range. But while playing today you can't miss the future of City Park golf.
Construction will begin on City Park's new Championship Level Golf Course comprised of a 250 acre footprint. The layout of the $13,180,00 eighteen hole course incorporates portions of the former East and West courses and features many of the historic oak trees and existing lagoons that are characteristic of the Park.
Designed by renowned golf course architect Rees Jones, the par 72 layout can be stretched from 5,100 – 7,250 yards and has been designed to accommodate players of all skill levels. The course will be complemented by a new clubhouse. Construction has started and is slated to finish in February 2017.
The Park's current public golf course, the North Course, will remain open.
