It’s an “Old School Meets New School” Course

How about the best of both worlds? A variance of how golf was played in traditional history and modern era golf?

The LaFayette Golf Course is a true challenge for any golfer to adapt to as it’s far from a simple course. It’s basically two courses in one!

It’s a little bit of “old school meets new school” as the course has two varying sides. The original 9-holes—which make up the first side—were built in the 1930s and are relatively short, but require accuracy both off the tee and in the approach shot into small greens. A few bunkers are strategically placed on just a few holes. It’s a course representative of how the game was played in the early 1900s.

The “new school” side is much longer—like most modern courses—with open grass bunkers, elevated greens, mounds and out-of-bounds that place a premium on club selection and strategy. The “new school” 9-holes were constructed in 1992 and designed by Arthur Davis.

“You can ask any golfer. The variation of the two 9’s is a true challenge,” LaFayette Golf Pro Eddie Jackson said. “It’s not easy. It’s two different worlds.”

Full Service Driving Range

The course also has a full service—300 yards long/75 yards wide—driving range that is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. A small bucket of balls costs $3. A large bucket costs $6. The driving range fits up to 20 people at one time.

Whether you are just starting out, wanting to improve your game, or just want to hit some golf balls for an hour or two, the full service driving range is waiting on you, Jackson said.

Lessons by a Golf Pro

Jackson manages the day-to-day operations of the golf course and is the golf course Golf Pro. Jackson became a Golf Pro in 1985. He is a native to the city and grew up with the original 9-hole course, where he won various State Championships.

“My job as a Golf Pro is to teach,” Jackson said.

Lessons are available to anyone wanting to learn the game. Junior camps are available in the summer for 4-year-olds up to 17-year olds. Jackson also teaches the importance of golf etiquette on the greens. Regular lessons are $40 per lesson and discounted packages are available as well.
