Brian Bateman from Monroe (and LSU) won a PGA event about 15 years ago.

I think lots of those young golfers credit David Toms’ 265 Academy. I know many of those guys basically lived out there during high school.

Was coming to say the same thing. The David Toms Academy is legit.

Toms grew up playing Palmetto in Benton which also no longer exists.

Yep, I live about 3 miles from the old course. Damn shame they couldn’t get anybody to purchase it and keep it a golf course.

About 10-15 years ago I know the Rob Noel Golf Academy had several promising young golfers. As of yet none have really made it on tour. I guess it’s really a long shot to even make it on tour much less win, especially with all the foreign golfers coming here on college scholarships.

265 Academy bruh. I practice out there and while I'm on the range just trying to hit it straight, there are kids out there with peach fuzz sticking the damn pin every time they swing. Seen Burns, David Tom's son, Barbaree, and Luis Gange (another player on the PGA tour) practicing out there on the regular.

Because there’s a million fricking courses around here. Damn near every town it seems like has one in the area.


Well yeah, there's nothing else to do there.

Contrast with south Louisiana that has about 25 different things to do(including golf) this time of year.
