Carter Plantation is home to PGA championship and Louisiana native David Toms' first signature design and the course is the recent recipient of Golf Magazine's "Top 10 Courses You Can Play". The spectacular 18-hole, 7,000-plus yard, par-72 golf course winds through three distinct Louisiana landscapes - live oak flats, cypress wetlands, and upland pine forests.

The visually stunning daily fee course has a Louisiana Golf Association slope rating of 140 and a course rating of 74.4 from the championship tees. Both the front and back nines consist of two par-3s, five par-4s, and two par-5s. Eighty-six strategically placed bunkers offer surprise and challenge to the golfer.

Carpeted with Tifeagle on the greens and Tifsport on the rolling fairways, each of the holes offers four or five tee positions, with water coming into play on eleven of the holes. Great effort has been made to preserve the plantation's native wildlife habitats, and indigenous grasses and plants have been extensively incorporated into the landscaping.

Sixty-three spacious rooms and suites situated in nine separate villas provide the perfect overnight accommodations for Carter Plantation guests. Each villa contains seven guest suites that may be reserved either individually or in varying combinations, offering comfort, luxury, and convenience for both recreational and corporate outings.

From an executive retreat to a romantic weekend getaway or weeklong family vacations, a stay at The Villas can be customized to suit every lodging need.

Whether it's you and your foursome or you and your family, our guest villas are designed for your relaxation and enjoyment. An innovative lockout floor plan makes The Villas adaptable for almost any type of overnight stay. All or part of a villa may be occupied by your group or family, or individual suites may be reserved to accommodate a couple or a single guest. One of our experienced hospitality staff will gladly assist in tailoring your reservations to meet your lodging requirements.

Although each suite features a complete Carter Plantation amenity package, some have fully-equipped kitchens and living and dining rooms, making them a true home away from home. For your conference or entertaining needs, both corporate and family groups will want to take advantage of the in-suite catering service which we offer in addition to conventional room service.
