Metairie Country Club is a premiere private club located in Metairie, LA, just west of the cultural mecca that is New Orleans. The club was founded in 1922 on the heels of “The Great War.” Designed by Seth Raynor and Joe Bartholomew, the club has just completed a significant restoration project under the guidance of architect Brian Silva that included new short grass playing surfaces, new bunkers, new irrigation and improved drainage. The grass varieties include TifEagle greens, TifGrand approaches, Latitude 36 tees and fairways and Tifway 419 rough. The most prominent feature of the course will no doubt be our putting surfaces. Every famous Raynor green template was implemented by Mr. Silva, and they will certainly become the trademark of the club. The greens, surrounds and proximity of the greens to the next tee boxes really give Metairie a true old school, classic feel that is customary with Raynor designs.
