Golfers enjoy a diverse terrain among the numerous golf courses found around Alexandria. Links on the Bayou is a municipal, 18-hole, par-72 course featuring a full-service pro shop and restaurant, practice range, chipping green, putting green and three-hole, par-three course. OakWing Golf Club is an 18-hole championship course which blends the natural beauty of Louisiana’s bayous, lakes and towering tree-lined fairways with the challenge of rolling hills and undulating greens.

With an on-site pro shop and restaurant, OakWing Golf Club is one of 12 courses in the state listed on the prestigious Louisiana Audubon Golf Trail. In Pineville, Rapides Golf and Country Club is a private, 18-hole, par-72 course. Scenic and challenging, the back nine is especially demanding due to the woods, hills and dogleg fairways.

The state’s temperate climate allows for golf year round, resulting in a number of frequented golfing locations in the area. For a private, 18-hole, par-72 regulation course, golfers can travel the short drive to Woodworth to the Alexandria Golf and Country Club. Two nine-hole courses are also nearby, The Golf Club at Timber Trails in Pineville and Oakland Plantation, which is located on the Louisiana State University at Alexandria campus.
