A new section of Tchefuncta Club Estates recently opened up, with the entrance road to the new area running southwestward from the estates entrance gate, past the golf course and into the piney woods. Phase three A of the subdivision offers 133 homesites, some of which already have homes built and for sale.
Tchefuncta Club estates is one of the oldest subdivisions in St. Tammany Parish, having been established in 1956, in the forest east of La. Hwy. 21 between Covington and Madisonville. It borders the Tchefuncte River.
New Orleans City Business reported that the new section "development started in 2019 when the Johnston family entrusted their 240-acre property, surrounded by preserved wetlands and landscapes and oak trees that will be embellished with ponds and park areas. Phase 3 features low-density home sites, meaning fewer houses on more acreage than other surrounding subdivisions."
