Great oaks from little acorns grow. Thus grew the Oakbourne Country Club. A writer in The Southern Golfer, April 1957, describes the scene: “The rolling hills along the banks of the beautiful Vermilion River . . . once constituted the sprawling acres of Oakbourne Plantation. Today a modern masonry, glass, and steel clubhouse look over the same rolling hills of Oakbourne Country Club, a realization of the dreams of many community-minded citizens who brought about this modern miracle in just a little over a year.”


But what was Oakbourne Plantation and how was it transformed into Oakbourne Country Club and the beautiful subdivision of Oakbourne Estates?


The land was prairie and woodland, where the Attakapas Indians once roamed. Their artifacts – arrowheads, bone tools, and sharps of painted pottery – still sometimes wash from the soil after heavy rain in Oakbourne Estates Subdivision. Under the rule of Spain, the land became part of a Spanish land grant. The portion of that grant that was to become Oakbourne Plantation, a tract of land in the Parish of Lafayette, “at a place called Prairie Sorrel,” came into the hands of John Grieg from Scotland, and eventually into the hands of Colonel Gustave Breaux.
