Golf Courses Near Texas State Line Undergo Upgrades
Casino courses Contraband Bayou and The Country Club at Golden Nugget tend to get the most attention when visiting golfers come to this popular golf spot near the Texas line. That’s not always the case, however.
A couple other courses well known to the casino crowd are making major upgrades. Gray Plantation has opened its new indoor academy – one of the very few in Louisiana – and another with a fancy name is about to take on a major new look.

There’s no denying the importance of what golf courses mean to the operators of the L’Auberge and Golden Nugget casinos, however.
