Stay away

So the best thing about this place was the lady behind the bar and Sydney in the proshop. I love the layout. I've played this course each year I visit and it constantly gets worse. Extremely bare, Back tee boxes almost gone on a few, no tee plates (except on par 3's) first few greens were punched in season, wild grass growing everywhere including edges of greens. For 100 bucks this was a terrible value. Will not be back and it's out of the rotation.

Few better

Always is good condition. Fast smooth greens. Plenty of room for tee shots but if you are really wild you will be punished. I play this course 10+ times a year. One of the best practice areas you will find on the MS coast.

Beautiful course

What a great course in south Gautier, who would have ever thought this particular area could produce such a gem. Course is challenging but fair, knowing the greens will help tremendously. The greens were some of the purist I've putted on, great job to the staff. I would say this is one of the best courses on the coast, great job Kenny Hughes! Will definitely play here again during my next visit. If you're in the area play this course you won't be disappointed.

Perfect conditions

Drove here from Dauphin Island - was worth the drive! The design of the course was a lot of fun. Every hole was unique and you needed to calculate your shot. You don't just grab a driver every hole and fire away. The gold tees were just the perfect length (6700 yards) The ladies tees were fair and my wife had a good time too. The greens, fairways, and tee boxes were all perfect. We paid $35 each for twilight - awesome value! Some of the holes were so difficult but they were so much fun. Played one of my best rounds. Watch out for Hole 18 - it's a doozy!

Beautiful Course

Shell Landing is a must play if in the Biloxi area. The course was in pristine condition. The course winds thru the marshland that provides great back drops and beauty to the course. Greens were excellent smooth and true. We did have multiple rain delays, course drains well but it was difficult to hit out of the rough when wet.
