Welcome to

Carter Plantation


A David Toms signature golf community in South Louisiana

Nestled amid moss-laden live oaks, towering pines and graceful cypress trees, you’ll find a true sanctuary. Carter Plantation features southern charm, simple elegance and one of the best 18-hole public golf courses in Southern Louisiana. Located in Springfield, a short drive from Baton Rouge, Carter Plantation offers incredible natural beauty and dedicated vision, creating an oasis of unexpected grace and tranquility.

Originally deeded as part of a Spanish land grant, Carter Plantation has been through many transitions during the course of its history. Today, history continues to be made as the property is transformed into a community we’d like you to consider your home, whether you’re visiting with us as a resort guest or living with us as a neighbor.

Like a savory Louisiana gumbo, Carter Plantation is a unique blend of many flavors—outstanding recreational opportunities, world-class facilities, and unsurpassed hospitality and service. It is a community in which the best of the past, present, and future align. Above all, it is a community that understands that a good time is timeless, and it is the deeply ingrained tradition of friendliness, warmth, and welcome that makes Carter Plantation a place that will refresh your spirit and capture your heart.
