Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Mississippi
Great Playing Conditions
The course was in great playing condition. The greens rolled true, and we in wonderful shape. I would highly recommend.
Still one of the Gulf Coast's finest
The Gulf Coast has many options for quality golf. For 20 years now, the Oaks has been one of the Mississippi Coast's top golf destinations. It continues to be today.
Played yesterday for the first time in about a year, and the course was as good as I remember it. The course eases you in with 2 relatively mild par 4's before hammering you with a longer 4, followed by a short 4 with a green you can't see from the tee. From there it's game on. There are nice elevation changes, nothing major, but enough to make flat-landers work a bit harder on shots. The shot values are great, and the course is set up so everyone from low to high handiappers can have a great time. The course was in great shape and most of the greens were perfect. If there was one thing about this course that has changed over the years that is not a positive, it's the homes going up all around it. It's beautiful land and I've played this course since it opened up, pretty much at least once a year. Originally there were very few homes around the course, now there are homes on many holes. They don't really take away from the course, but whenever you find a course mostly secluded in the woods and you have that feeling of being surrounded completely by nature, it's special.
The course isn't long and doesn't really play long. There are several greens with a couple of tiers to adds to your fun, and some greens perched above fairway height , as well as a couple below it. While the par 3's take the spotlight on this course (as well as the gorgeous par 5 sixth hole), the short par 4's might be the most fun on the course. Holes 1,4, 13, and 14 are short-ish par 4's (13 can be long from the back tees, but from the front tees you can gamble a little and get inside 100 yards off the tee). On these holes you can lay back or hit the big stick and still have varying wedge shots in. It all makes for a fun course, with plenty of scoring opportunities, but also plenty of challenges.
Great place to play
Played this course after heavy rain the previous day. I would love to play it when it's dry. I had a great time just was sloppy due to previous rain. Can't wait to go back.
The course starts out as a typical subdivision golf course, but it gains character as you go. The course was in excellent condition in spite of all the rain they have had in the last month. The greens were fast and smooth. The tee boxes were in good shape, and the fairways were in very good condition.
Have a GPS
The course is nice and well maintained. It does suffer a few bad spots on the multiple greens, but they are around the edges. The scorecard had only yardage, with no hole overview; they did sell a nice book with all the holes detailed but I found this to be a little bit much. Great deal on Golfnow but it would be a stretch for value if you paid full price.
Great course to play
Nice track! Friendly Pro Shop staff and a fun golf course layout. I didn't play my best golf today but that's golf. I would love to play this course again when I'm in the area.
High quality course
Played the course at the Twilight rate which was an excellent price point for the high quality of the course. Everything was very well kept, fairways were soft, and greens were fast and true, especially for the time of year. A few fairway bunkers were as hard as concrete and could use some resanding, but the ones near the greens were in great condition. Course design gave a sense of isolation as holes were seperated by plenty of woods, as to be expected from a neighborhood golf course.
Poor greens and a morning fivesome
Played here because of good reviews. There is currently a major problem with the greens. Also played a five hour plus round behind a fivesome. They did not allow us to play through. I asked a marshall if this is the norm here and he said he said simply, fivesomes are permitted. Beware. Played a very enjoyable and affordable replay with no holdup and had a good time in the afternoon.
This is a spectacular course with great greens and tree lined fairways. The greens are multi-teared and well protected. They roll very true. The fairways are tight but not penal. Like all great courses, good shots are rewarded bit mistakes will grab you. Subtle traps and sloping terrain make smart approach shots essential. The pro and his staff are the best around, always looking for a way to make the experience better. Rates are reasonable and pace of play is usually very good. My favorite course on the Coast.. Do yourself a favor and play the Oaks. Its real golf in a beautiful location.
