Metairie Country Club
Address: 580 Woodvine Ave.
Less exclusive than the New Orleans Country Club, but discerning of its patrons nonetheless, the 91-year-old Metairie Country Club—which is almost adjacent to its country club competitor above—has prided itself on offering what it calls an atmosphere of “gracious relaxation.” Well, gracious if you’re a member that is. A robust calendar of social events happens at and around the club’s tennis courts, swimming pools (plural—there are three of ‘em), fitness center, and restaurants. But the truly unique gem here is the golf course itself, which took three years to construct, as each hole is a replica of famous golf holes of at other clubs in the U.S. and Scotland. Unfortunately for you, the chances of seeing the handiwork of famed golf course architect Seth Raynor up close are highly unlikely.
