  About the course 

David Toms, the 2001 PGA Champion, shared design duties with Glenn Hickey at carter plantation, a 700-acre development that opened last October along the Blood River. Toms, a Louisiana native, and Hickey worked without an architect or blueprints, relying on instinct. "We just started routing and clearing corridors," Toms says. They moved more than 600,000 cubic yards of earth to create striking elevation changes rarely seen in these parts. The 15th, a 588-yard par 5 flanked on the left by gaping fairway bunkers, calls for both an aggressive driving line and a demanding carry. Gnarly rough that Toms calls "mustaches" rings all 86 bunkers at Carter Plantation. These furry collars dominate the 13th hole, a ragin' Cajun par 5 of 608 yards. The course snakes through dense stands of pine, live oak, cypress and Tupelo gum trees to create one of the best venues in the state. "When you play here," says Toms, "you won't think, 'I've seen this hole before." -excerpt from the article "Top Ten You Can Play," GOLF MAGAZINE, February 2004
