Gretna Green


The Gretna Green Knickers Golf Tournament and Clubhouse Affaire’ began as a vision by the Mayor of the City of Gretna and within a matter of months a reality for Timberlane Country Club.  The first annual Gretna Green was held in honor of the Centennial Celebration of Our City of Gretna. The mayor envisioned golfers wearing knickers, the sound of bagpipes playing, ladies dressed in their Sunday's era best, and people walking about the clubhouse enjoying a festive luncheon. This tournament is now an annual event as each year the theme depicts the next decade.  Golfers enjoy dishes along the course from some of New Orleans' most distinguished restaurants and enjoy the pleasures offered by special hole sponsors.  Golfers have an opportunity to win two grand prizes for the hole-in-one contests: a new car or a cash prize. The Clubhouse Affaire’ is an opportunity for non-golfers to partake in this unique event that has caught the eye of the local media.  The Clubhouse Affaire’ brings the decade to life inside the club from the over the top decorations to the delicious luncheon with decade entertainment. This annual event fills up fast, so be sure to call the club to reserve your spot early for this special event.
