Prison View Golf Course, Louisiana
Holy Cow. “Play may be suspended at any time, due to institutional need or at the Warden’s discretion.“
This nine hole layout is one of a kind. The name says it all. The golf course is actually located INSIDE a prison!!! Like may prison experiences, the course is no easy feat. There is an island green and water comes into play on almost every hole. There are also 37 bunkers!
But keep in mind: “Persons entering Louisiana State Penitentiary must consent to a search of their vehicle, belongings and/or person at any time, while on institutional grounds.” And…”Absolutely NO firearms, drugs, alcohol or other contraband items (such as, but not limited to, cameras, knives, etc.) are allowed on the premises.”
Golf simply does not get more exciting than this!
