What’s the best club to join on the northshore?
Looking to play golf mostly, but the other amenities would be good for the wife and newborn. Any ideas of membership dues at Beau Chene? Would you recommend it?

You’ll end up coughing up $5-600 at BC/month.
Money Hill is nicer, but it’s far.
Tchefuncte is a little cheaper than BC, but the course blows.
For the money, CCC.

BC dues depend on your age. There is a discounted membership under 40. Its about $250 a month base, then you pay for carts, etc. No dining minimum. Over 40 is roughly $330 base. The initiation varies as well for under/over 40.

Not a huge fan of TCC, and its the same price as BC. In my opinion, BC has more to offer with 36 holes, etc.

Money Hill is one of the best courses in the state. Depends where you live in terms of making sense.

CCC is neat track, just doesn't have any funding. I'm surprised they are still operating the course. Semi private.

CCC is the best value. Especially if you are on east side of the river. Course is in decent shape they just don’t have the cash to invest in traps, tee boxes and greens. But it’s a fun course that will keep your game sharp.

BC if you want to spend more cash. Really cool courses, well maintained but drainage not as good as CCC. I’d only consider it if I lived in the neighborhood.

Money hill is beautiful but far. I grew up a few miles from there.

I would do CCC as it will be your “practice” course, and save cash to go play nicer places 1-2x a month.

I'd visit all of them, play them all a few times before jumping in, and see which one best fits your needs.

Did it in Nola and ended up happy with my decision.

Side note; just remember the club is only as good as the members. People tend to overlook this when joining a club.

Can’t believe it’s still open.
The property value and river frontage must be huge.
I was a member before Katrina and it was a fun course to play.
But as far as quality of golf and amenities..Money Hill by far.

I agree. I like the course. The 9 that starts by the club is awesome. The 9 across the street is a little bland. It could be great if there was an infusion of cash again.

Money Hill is awesome. Beau Chene has improved courses as of late (greens, bunkers, etc), and having 36 holes is nice.

I hear they are giving away memberships at TCC. Money Hill is the best especially if you like IPAs, and mosquitoes. Depends on where you live really. Join the one that's closest to your house.

re: What’s the best club to join on the northshore?
I'm a "member" a CCC. It's a great layout, but they don't put any money into the course. The guy who owns the course has major cash, but he knows nothing about golf and he's holding onto it to sell as real estate to a developer.

One of his family members runs the course and only lets him put the profits back into the course

No driving range, no grill, no pool, no tennis courts. So basically no amenities.

This is a killer. And yes, CCC is just for golf. If you want a full club experience, it has to be one of the other 3 mentioned.

Not a 100% sure but I think when Blossman bought it, he agreed not to develop it for an x number of years.

That's correct. The term was for 10 years. That was 8 years ago.

That is not correct. It is not zoned for development and won’t be for the foreseeable future.

Among other things (property values of existing owners), the infrastructure is not there to develop substantially. Drainage is a big issue in the neighborhood as it stands. M

The parish has been pretty firm that the zoning will not change. Big discrepancy between golf course value and value of that land. IMO, the parish should spend some money on it and make it semi-municipal.

Are you at one of the two private clubs in NOLA? Because that is a drawn out process and not as simple as playing and deciding which course you like best.

OP, with a young family proximity will be one of the most important parts of your decisions but also the pool and activities for your wife and child. That will make the club experience better for you and the whole family. Something for everybody.

I like the people and facilities at TCC. Swingfest is enough reason to join

What happened to the pool, grill? I was a member there years ago and it had them then. Cool little club for the price

If I lived around town I would join beau chene, but I live 10 minutes from money hill so that is where I am. Tchefuncfa is a dump of a course compared to money hill and even beau chene. Tchefuncta’s only saving grace is good members and a great club house.

It’s all there. We just can’t use it.

Brett pees in it sometimes, but that’s about it.

Beau Chene is the best of those options. Two courses so unless it’s the Pig tournament going on there is always a course open. TCC is a dump and CCC while decent doesn’t have a range and members are old.

Money Hill isn’t really in the same league as these other clubs but it’s in bum frick Egypt
