Rating 69.7
Type Resort
Gulf Hills Golf Club has been an important part of the Mississippi Gulf Coast golfing community for more than 80 years. Located on Fort Bayou, the rolling hills carry golfers through a residential community. It is one of the coast's most unique golf courses, with lots of canals, bayous and bridges. The 18-hole resort course, designed by Jack Daray, opened in 1927. Gulf Hills Golf Club measures 6,266 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 125 and a 69.7 USGA rating. The golf course features four sets of tees for different skill levels. The 175-yard 17th hole was once regarded by Golf Digest as one of the top five most beautiful and challenging holes in the southeastern region.

Decent Resort Course

This course is right across the hotel we stayed in. The first and last are drivable from the back tees. The course is okay. The day we played the course, the greens and fairways were wet and every approach and tee shot just plugged. For an old course, it is decent for the price.

Gulf Coast Golfing

We booked Gulf Hills Country Club on GolfNow and were able to save $15. It was a great course and I will definitely return. The Gulf Coast is a great place to visit between golf and the restaurants.

Not much for the money

Pace of play because there was no starter and they let 2 fivesomes play on the weekend Course was in lousy shape for deep south course, no over seeding on fairways or greens. Doubt if I would waste my 50$ again.
