Dogwoods Golf Course

  7 Reviews

I was looking for a nice course to play on my way from STL to Baton Rouge. Dogwood's reviews sounded good. I lucked out! What a spectacular course! Tucked back in a state park next to Lake Grenada (and nothing else; no houses, just nature) it's almost too nice. It makes it hard to concentrate on your game. Woods & trees separate each hole so you can only see the hole you're on. Bring your long driver because there are many "forced carries" over tall grasses, lakes, etc. Only the bunker situation kept this course from being perfect.
(My car's GPS took me on a very nice short route to the course only to discover the road was close due to high water. I called was told another route that wound through the woods.)

This course is a lot of fun to play, and with a little work, it could be one of the best in the state. The biggest problem they've got right now is that the bunkers are all washed out down to the gravel. It's pretty hard to open a wedge up wide enough to slide down into sun-baked gravel. Fixing that probably isn't cheap (especially for a municipal course), but it would make a world of difference.

Another thing that needs to be done is to set up an intermediate set of tees. Right now, the whites run about 6,500 yards, and the next set of tees runs about 5,800 yards. That disparity is ridiculous. Setting up some tees at about 6,200 yards would enhance playability and would cost next to nothing.

A handful of greens had some burnout issues, but that has to be expected, given how hot this summer has been (even by Mississippi standards). The bunkers are the biggest issue. Still, this is a great course. It would really be something to see in the fall or spring.
