With fairways that wind through groves of hardwoods and pines, around ponds and alongside acres of wetlands, the Oaks Golf Club provides one of the most unforgettable golfing experiences on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

The striking par-72 layout is highlighted by strategic bunkering, dramatic green complexes and a meandering routing and creates a serene and tranquil golf experience. Designed by Dr. Gil Morgan, the 18-hole public golf course that opened in 1998 measures 6,885 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 131 and a 72.5 USGA rating.

Throughout its history, the Oaks has received numerous awards and accolades, including being honored by Golf Digest as one of the Top Ten Courses in Mississippi, voted as the Best Course on the Coast by readers of Coast Magazine and selected as the 2003 "Golf Course of the Year for the Mississippi Gulf Coast " by the National Golf Course Owners Association.

The Oaks Golf Club has challenged some of the top players in the country as a former host of Nike Tour/Buy.com events (now the PGA Tour's Nationwide Series) in 1999 and 2000 and having played host to the first stage of the PGA Tour Qualifying School in 2003.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Oaks was thought to be the lesser of the four courses in our package for a Biloxi golf trip. The Oaks was equal to the other courses we played. The greens were smooth and fast the quickest we played on our trip. The course was in excellent shape. The tree lined tight fairways with several forced carries made The Oaks a difficult test of golf. Really enjoyed the course. The clubhouse food is over priced and cooked in a microwave would suggest going off course to eat.

For whatever reason, the Oaks never seems to be in the conversation of great Mississippi Gulf Coast golf courses, but as far as I'm concerned, it's nearly on par with the likes of Grand Bear. I've played twice, and both times the conditions have been terrific. Deep bunkers and relatively narrow fairways will keep you on your toes.

The course had a nice touch for Veteran's Day by having all of the pins posted with US Flags. However, they did not provide a holder for the pin when it was removed and the flag cannot be laid on the ground. A nice touch but not fully thought through.

I Am an average player paired with a father/son couple. The father a beginner and son a highschool team member trying a different course from his usual one for first time. We "paid our fee" just like eveyone else. We where slow and trying to enjoy the day and the nice course. On our own as was proper we continued to allow people to play through. We were continually reminded by the marshall to pickup the pace again and again because a normal round was 4 hrs. That may be the case with a group of "good" players but courses and course personnel should realize that that is not the case with everyone. The course only has a number post by each hole, no indication of hole configuration nor any on the score card; so we are playing blind. I continued to try to help the father beginner and keep him from geting frustrated which made it bad for his son only to have the course worker come along and keep telling us to pick up the pace! That course has managed to take what should have and could have been a good learning experience for father and son into a miserable day. I feel bad for them more than myself!!!

Great course in Pass Christian. They were having an issue with their sprinklers and even though it hasn't rained in a few weeks there were some tee boxes and greens that were muddy and soggy. Other than that it was a great round on a solid course.

Excellent Course, but the marshal is a bit temperamental. He threatened to throw us off of the course for driving on the fairways. I was not advised that it was cart path only and the holes that I drove the carts on were not marked and in excellent condition (I only made it through two holes). I wish he would have handled the situation a little differently. Yelling and threatening your customers is not a way to earn business.
