Anyone considering the Bayou Oaks Young Professional membership?
2k for the year, only pay cart fees. I was considering doing ET, but when I turn 31 it goes up to 200 a month. I’m right around the corner from Bayou Oaks, seems like a better deal for me. Only concern is not having other friends who do the membership. Would you consider doing a membership if you thought you might be playing solo or with random pairings every time? Also, I don’t want to pay 2k up front, any idea if they would do monthly payments like other clubs?

I would never pay to be a member at Bayou Oaks.

I thought about it with living close by but I joined turn a year or two ago and the two courses don’t even compare for me. I’ll drive the extra 15-20min on Saturday morning to play a more fun and nicer course.

It does suck I can just pop over to the range at turn but it’s not like CP has a decent practice area.

I was in the same boat but found players once I joined. I’d go in and talk to the head pro, talk about your game and other players. Have the pro link you up and get into games
Considering you live in the Mid City/Lakeview area ET and TPCLA are a hike. The only benefit those two places have over Bayou Oaks is a practice facility. Bayou Oaks is probably between ET and TPCLA in terms of golf course quality, challenge, and overall condition I certainly think it’s convenience is worth it.
In terms of cost, depending on when you play AM aid $55 and PM is $35 (excludes cost of cart since you still pay that), looking at ~40-45 rounds a year.
Some clubs will finance a membership fee but that’s a CC not an annual due which is what this is. $2k annually as opposed to a one time $xx,000 fee.

ETA: i agree with mailman.

If you were a new resident to NOLA in the uptown-ish area (and under 30), with about $200/mo (preferably 200 but willing to spend ~250 if it made a drastic difference in quality) to spend on golf are you best off:

A.) Just playing at some of the nicer public courses and bouncing around
B.) Trying to find a membership with any of the clubs in the area, and if so, which ones might best fit my description

FWIW I’ve played Lakewood a couple times before and liked it and also like to hit the range once or twice a week if that plays a factor

I think it’s a 5-7k buy in that goes up at 31. $300/month base that goes up also at 31? Some numbers may be a bit off but I think that’s ballpark.

re: Anyone considering the Bayou Oaks Young Professional membership?
just found out they changed the payment options.

You can pay $500 up front and be charged $160 10 times over the remainder of the year. $20 cart fee for 18 holes, $10 for 9 holes and free to walk. I think thats a solid value for location and quality of the course. Considering ET is $200 a month + $20 cart fee plus food and drink minimum's quarterly its cheaper to do Bayou Oaks.
