About

Holes 18
Type Military
Par 71
Length 6517 yards
Slope 112
Rating 70.7

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. Bay Breeze Golf Course's signature hole is No. 10, a 180-yard, par-3, with a breathtaking view of the bay that borders the course. Since the course is on an Air Force base, the terrain is flat. There are trees spaced throughout the course. The greens are large and well bunkered.

Bay Breeze, designed by Nathan Crace, measures 6,563 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 121 and a 69.5 USGA rating. The course features two sets of tees for different skill levels.

The military course, which opened in 1962, is open to Air Force personnel and their guests.

Greens

They lost the greens again! Looks like fungus and nematodes. Probably won’t drop the money to fix the greens so they might come back in six months if you’re lucky. Sad

Good Value Decent Course

I only paid $20 for green fees. Course was as good as public courses where I live. Greens (all but one) were in great shape. The staff was very friendly and professional. Great locker room and driving range. Score card could use a map of the holes. Be prepared for long wait a visitor center for your guest pass to the base. Would definitely play here again.

Good Price

This course is in mediocre shape. I would not play it unless I got a hot deal of 10 or 11 dollars.
Staff is super nice and the views of the bay are nice. Fun day for the price!

Be sure and allow extra time to check in at visitors center. Security is very tight as it should be on this Air Force base.

Good Value for money

Got deal of day on golf now. Very wet. Course has trouble draining in multiple spots. Great Great views of the Back Bay. Interesting views of the air strip. Interesting layout. Confusing to find tee boxes in some places. A few arrows on cart paths could fix that. Hard to find yardage markers. Only saw 150 plate on few holes.

Pro shop help was very friendly. Getting on the base is somewhat of a hassle. I understand the need for security though.

Value is definitely there. I plan to play it some more.

Great value

Course layout challenging, very long for weekend golfer. Greatest improvement is the greens. Not super fast but well manicured. Only green on hole #11 is not acceptable. Please go back to the drawing board on that one! Overall great value for the money.

Nice Course

A nice course, but needs a little TLC. They know it and are working on it. Pay attention to the lay out, I went from 3 to 8. The back nine is much harder than the front.
To get on the base you will need a valid Drivers license car registration and proof of insurance. Be prepared.

Nice round by the bay

We had a very enjoyable round at Bay Breeze. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The pace of play was good and we finished our round in about 3 hours 45 mins. The back 9 was scenic as we played by the bay. The greens were not in the best of shape after the cold winter but all in all, a fun afternoon and good value for the golfnow hot deal of the day.
NOTE: If you are a civilian coming on the base , make sure to go to the Visitor's Center (not the other base entrance.) Leave yourself lots of extra time- 45 minutes- to get a guest pass. Also, make sure to call the pro shop to request that your name be added to the golf guest list. Best to do this BEFORE the day you are playing. The pro shop then needs to email your name to the visitor's center. The visitor's center advised that our names were not on the list. This, coupled with a line in the visitor's center, took 45 mins.

Overcharged Hot Deal

The course was in terrible shape! Some greens had NO grass at all and others were sparse at best. The condition was one thing, but walking in off the street I would have paid less than I paid for the Hot Deal! I am a 27 Year veteran and usually Air Force base courses are in fairly decent condition. This was the worst I have played on in that 27 years!

SHOULD HAD BEEN A FLY-BY

Hopefully, the airmen should play this course for free. That would be fair value.

enjoyable course

I enjoyed my time at Bay Breeze,which is accurately named.The weather was a little cooler than I prefer and the North wind off the bay was pretty strong.The course is well worth the price and having to go thru security to get on base.I will definitely play here again.

Windy

I played on a very windy day and they were busy , Pace of play was ok a couple of holes were wet good value for money , I would recommend giving yourself Xtra 45 min if you have to get a pass to get on base. Overall a good deal , a few holes need some work , my GPS on the yardage was off on several holes, would recommend.

An Adventure Golf Course

Make sure to play this golf course when you visit Biloxi Missippi, it's a challenging golf course with friendly staff and an excellent pace of play. Make sure to go there at least an extra 30 minutes than your usual time, because you will need to get a pass to enter the gate. The guards will tell you where to go, which is only about from 10 to 15 minutes process depending on how busy they are.... Overall I really enjoyed playing this golf course, because it's an adventure and it's very affordable definitely worth the drive and going through the process on going there. Highly recommended...

Do not play this course unless you have a base pass

My experience was total waste of time, I drove 30 minutes to play there and when I got to the gate the guard would not let me in to play the golf course and was also very rude. He acted like I was stupid for even showing up there. I have tried to call GolfNow but cannot get through to request a refund, total loss including gas and time about 40 USD

bay breeze

Third time playing at Bay Breeze. Love to play this course. Staff is great and the course is set so you can see the C-130s land and take off from the runway.
The back nine has a beautiful view of the bay and surronding area. YOu need to play here. You will not be
dissappointed.
