I enjoy Great Southern. I enjoy the fact that its been here for so long. Easy to play and enjoy the weather. A couple of the greens had some rough spots on them, but the course was otherwise in good shape.

If you want a modern well groomed golf course, play else where. This is a classic Donald Ross 1908 golf course, with conditions to match. Some greens have substantial damage, but you can play around them.

Very enjoyable course.

This was a very enjoyable round, on a beautiful course with 2 holes playing towards the beach. The views are beautiful, I wish I could say the same for the greens. They are not terrible, but need a lot of work. The pace was good and everyone was very nice and helpful.

Very nice course. The hospitality was excellent. I really loved the square shaped greens and learning the history of the course. I would recommend playing here as the green fees are more than fair. Thanks for a great round.

Great Southern is a fovorite of mine. It's open fairways make is easier to find you ball after an errant T-shot and still hit the green.

Layout was fair. Challenging landing areas on some holes. Greens were in terrible shape. Some fairways appeared like they had not been cut in a while. Not a course for serious golfers.

Very short, flat, easy course. Pace of play, for some strange reason was very very slow. Not sure if people don't believe in letting faster players through, or the timing of letting others tee off was way too close. Regardless, it's not a BEST course, it can be confusing, but it is flat with its own characteristics, which makes it fun. The layout seems simple, but you can find yourself into trouble easily. Probably my favorite part was the older gentleman that was SUPER FRIENDLY. He was such a pleasure and super helpful.

I really like this course for it's views of the gulf, but the greens are in terrible need for repair. Not only are most missing grass, several look diseased. I hope they take steps to fix this problem, because it's not worth playing, no matter the price.

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
