Tee Times Changes

Effective July 1, 2017, BREC is modernizing it’s tee time reservation processes.  Tee Times are now taken beginning at 12:00 noon, 13 days in advance of the play date.  Reservations are taken by phone only for the first 30 minutes after tee times open.  After 12:30, reservations may be made by phone, in person, or online.

This change moves the initial reservation time to mid-day where it is easier for most of our customers to contact us.  Taking tee times 13 days prior to the tee time lets our customers plan further in advance, this is better for both our regular customers and our out of town guests.  Taking reservations by phone only for the first 30 minutes assures fair and equal opportunity for all of our customers to reserve desirable tee times.

Who designed BREC Golf Courses? Might be really surprised!

Compared to many cities within the USA that have public courses owned and operated by the Parks & Rec… BREC actually has a lot of famous architects involved in its history.  One that the citizen golfers of Baton Rouge can be proud of.

Craig Schreiner is a golf course architect that has designed or renovated over two dozen courses nationally.  Schreiner designed and built Beaver Creek.  He also did a complete renovation and building of J S Clark Golf Course; he has done several First Tees nationally.  He also did some renovation on City Park Golf Course by reconstructing two holes, adding irrigation, and installing tiff dwarf in the greens.

Tom Bendelow is one of the reasons City Park Golf Course is referred to as Historic City Park Golf Course.  Bendelow came over from Scotland during the time golf was beginning to be played in the USA.  Contributing to the growth of golf, Bendelow may have been the most prolific golf course designer and builder ever.  Bendelow has several courses that have hosted PGA, US Open, and Ryder Cup events.  City Park was one of the last courses he designed.  His name and stature in the game is enormous.

Robert Trent Jones is basically the icon of American golf course designers.  Easily recognized by golfers who seek out great challenges, Jones has designed and built some of the best courses in the country. Only two courses in Louisiana have his signature, and one is here in Baton Rouge – Santa Maria Golf Course.  Supremely symbolic of his style, this golf course meets the standard of his basic philosophy… par is a good score.
