The course is full of history and potential. It is located on the beautiful Mississippi beach front. For what ever reason it is poorly maintained and the greens are in the worst condition I have ever seen them. We have several courses here on the Mississippi gulf coast that are great layouts and are very well maintained. I don't understand why this one is in such poor condition. It should be the flagship of golf on the ms golf coast. The twilight fees are 20 dollars and the course is worth that but not a penny more. Would love to see this course return to its hay day condition. Come on great southern. Grab the bull by the horns and make it happen. The community and the 5.7 million yearly visitors will support you all the way

My Wife and I played this course on our vacation, played for $12.00 per person! thanks to golf now deals, thought the course had a fun and easy layout. The greens were rough and had patches on majority of their holes but the greens keeper at least does a good job of putting the holes away from the rough spots. Staff was very friendly and courteous to us, they had a great selection at the bar. Overall great experience and I will recommend it to anyone and we will be playing it again if we ever come back to Gulfport.

Challenging water hazard and sand traps along with the windy conditions make this course fun to play. Greens and fairways need a lot of improvement.

Played with a group of 5 and some guys in my party arrived 10 mins late for our tee time. The gentleman working the front desk was rude to my guest not understanding that they had simply forgotten their wallet at home. The greens are usually in good shape but this time they weren't in the best possible condition. Overall play was good and I'll play there again.

Got a good deal on GolfNow so me and a friend decided to give it a try. I have never been but heard good things about the course. View of the Gulf of Mexico is awesome. The course was in decent shape considering the weather we have been having this time of year. It was somewhat windy, but that's to be expected when you play on the beach. The fairways need a little work and the course didn't seem to drain very well. All bunkers were full of water. Overall, the course is not extremely long and is pretty wide open. However, the placement of the sand traps and water hazards make this course challenging enough for golfers of all skill levels.

This course is a great city course with a view of the ocean on a couple holes. Makes you feel like your playing on a ocean course. The course is wide open with minimal trees. Which makes it fun for a grip and rip type of day. We play this course about twice a year during our trips to Biloxi. Have had a great experience every time we have gone. The staff is freindly and treat you like you come in everyday. My only complaint is the lack of a cart girl but as long as you stock up at the bar before your round. Then the issue doesn't matter. All and all this is a great place for a relaxing golf round.

Forgiving course, wide and long fairways. Greens were hit or miss, but more often miss, overall they needed quite a bit of attention. Tee boxes were decently kept, one or two were actually immaculate. Par 3's were short, and the 5's were relatively long. In the middle of the back nine there were 3 par 5's in a row which I found to be a bit tiresome. Course had some standing water issues particularly on the back nine. Overall impresssion, the course is in need of some groundskeeping but still very enjoyable.
