After several months of extensive construction and renovations, The Country Club of Louisiana (CCLA) has opened its newly redesigned golf course to members. A key Baton Rouge fixture since 1986, CCLA is among the first Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses in a residential setting. As part of the renovation work, CCLA replaced its Champion greens with MiniVerde bermudagrass to provide a truer putting surface. MiniVerde was introduced in the industry around 2002 and many have found it to not only be a superior surface but also one requiring less maintenance. MiniVerde has been recommended often by Nicklaus Design for its golf courses in the southeast.
