Featured Biloxi Area Golf Courses
Unlike some Jack Nicklaus golf courses that have earned a reputation for being among the world's most difficult, mid- and high-handicappers stand a fighting chance at the Grand Bear Golf Course. Nicklaus offers wide fairways before the sprawling woods take over on either side, most bunkers aren't horribly steep, and greens generally have room in front to run a shot up.
Sand and water come in to play on 13 holes at venerable Sunkist Country Club, which was established in 1953, making it one of the original golf destinations on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Dogwood Hills Golf Course is one of Biloxi's best-kept secrets for golfers who want to unwind and get away. The 18-hole public course, designed by Brent Williams, opened in 1993. Dogwood Hills measures 5,927 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 113 and a 69 USGA rating.
The Bridges Golf Club at Hollywood Casino is Mississippi's only Arnold Palmer signature championship golf course and the first resort course in the world to be granted the Audubon Silver Signature Status by Audubon International.
Established in 1908, the Great Southern Golf Club overlooks the Gulf of Mexico as the oldest golf course in Mississippi. That helps explain the course's peculiar greens. In 1999, Great Southern Golf Club was renovated by Brian Curly, who took pains to keep Ross' square greens and still satisfy the USGA's specifications.
As the name should imply, the Bay Breeze Golf Course is located right off of a back bay where the wind is a factor all day long. There are water hazards that come into play on nine of the 18 holes.
Gulf Hills Golf Club has been an important part of the Mississippi Gulf Coast golfing community for more than 80 years. Located on Fort Bayou, the rolling hills carry golfers through a residential community. It is one of the coast's most unique golf courses, with lots of canals, bayous and bridges.
One of the oldest golf courses on the Gulf Coast, the Pass Christian Isles Golf Club is known for having very small greens, as were most courses designed in the early 1900s.
