New Orleans is a far cry from a city you would typically associate with country clubs – but there are many residents who want them. Pool, tennis, golf, and a clubhouse are all amenities that many seek out when purchasing their New Orleans home.
Some neighborhoods in the greater New Orleans area include membership to their country club when you own a home in the subdivision. Other country clubs require you to join and pay membership dues whether you live there or not.
While the city limits of New Orleans do not offer many options for country clubs, you don’t have to travel far to find one. If having a country club mere minutes from you is a must-have, then check out some of the many country clubs in the New Orleans metro area.

Located in New Orleans suburbs Gretna and Harvey, Stonebridge has long been a desirable neighborhood. Undergoing some major renovations, the Stonebridge Country Club is moving in a direction to wow their, and other Westbank, residents. The golf course has never looked better and will be enhanced in the near future. The pool is slated to be open by summer 2020 with tennis courts to follow. Stonebridge is also building small and large event spaces so Westbankers have options for weddings and corporate events without crossing the Crescent City Connection. Residents of this subdivision started paying on a 20 years assessment for these upgrades in 2019.
