We all look for something different each time we travel and as golfers we all want to play great courses but when you can add in great food, truly heartfelt hospitality and a city like New Orleans with all its traditions, great architecture and of course jazz and blues music then you really are on to a winner.
I spent six nights playing six courses on Louisianaís Audubon Golf Trail and if the other ten courses live up to these six I canít wait to play the rest. If you are looking to expand your travel horizons, sample great cuisine, play great courses, there are a variety of accommodation from downtown New Orleans with its classic colonial style hotels to resorts, casinos, plantations or cabins on a lake, Louisiana needs to be on your bucket list of destinations.
