OAKWING GOLF CLUB ~ Louisiana’s “Best Kept Secret”
OakWing Golf Club opened its doors on August 2nd 2002. The centerpiece of a major redevelopment project at England Air Force Base, OakWing is one of those hidden jewels that everyone falls in love with the first time they play it.
Designed by Mr. Jim Lipe, the 18-hole championship golf course, combines the natural beauty of Louisiana bayous, lakes, and towering tree-lined fairways with rolling hills and undulated greens.
Mr. Lipe designed OakWing with five different tee sets to give players the option of playing a fun and relaxing round of golf with friends or challenging their ability like a PGA professional.
OakWing Golf Club is a semi-private facility, open to the public daily, as well as offering memberships to those looking to join and experience the country club atmosphere. OakWing offers all the amenities you expect in a first-class facility. Full practice facilities including a 40,000 square foot grass teeing area, two full size practice bunkers, chipping green and large putting green. OakWing golf carts have state of the art Global Positioning Systems providing players with hole by hole layout and exact yardages for each shot.
The beautifully designed clubhouse includes a full-stocked pro-shop, small conference room for private functions, full-service grill and men’s and women’s locker rooms. The Grill at OakWing is open to the public daily, we invite you to come by for lunch and enjoy our delicious food with a breathtaking view.
