The English Turn Golf and Country Club is a private golf course and country club in the southern United States, located in New Orleans, Louisiana.[2] Formerly a venue of the PGA Tour, its par-72 championship course measures 7,078 yards (6,472 m) from the back tees.[3][4] It is the home course for the Tulane Green Wave college golf teams.[5]

Course history

Southeast of downtown, the course was designed by Jack Nicklaus for the New Orleans PGA Tour event and opened in 1988.[2][6][7] The event, previously held at Lakewood Country Club, was played at English Turn for sixteen editions (1989–2004), then moved west to TPC Louisiana in 2005. Damage to that course by Hurricane Katrina in late summer caused a one-year return in 2006.[8]

For the first edition in 1989, the course was set at 7,106 yards (6,498 m) and the winner's share was, $135,000;[9] Tim Simpson was the champion, two strokes ahead of runners-up Greg Norman and Hal Sutton.[9]
