Mallard Cove Ad
You are now at the website of one of the best municipal golf courses in Southwest Louisiana. Thank you for visiting with us. This golf course has been owned and operated by the City of Lake Charles since its opening in 1976 and has been recognized for excellence by Golf Digest magazine.
Our brand new clubhouse facility opened in July of 2009. The cost of this project was more than $1.7 million and encompasses over 11,500 sq. ft. It is a very special project that we are proud to show off. In 2005 Hurricane Rita damaged the clubhouse beyond repair and we waited for more than 3 ½ years to see this project completed. It is a grand structure for a municipal golf facility, featuring a Southern flavor with a craftsman style. It is very inviting, comfortable and a wonderful asset for our golf operations. You will definitely enjoy the new amenities to complement your round of golf!
Guest lockers are available at low daily rates if you want to bring a change of clothes and a shower towel with you. While you are here, be sure to take a look at our hole-by-hole description page, daily rates page and calendar of events.

Mallard Cove is a championship layout design with Women's tees, Senior tees, Medium tees and Championship tees. The course features 25 large bunkers and water hazards coming into play on 12 of the 18 holes. The Championship course rating is 73.0 and the slope is 128. We are host to all of Lake Charles' City Championships and many other local fundraising golf events, including the annual Summer Shoot-out Series.
