Golf & Sports

Mississippi is a golfer’s paradise. Each of our five distinct regions has a geographic character all its own, and the courses in each region play upon the topography to create a myriad of unique and memorable experiences. Esteemed publications such as Golf Digest, Golfweek and GOLF Magazine have rated Mississippi courses among the best in the country, thanks to a collection of layouts designed by the likes of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, Jerry Pate and Davis Love III. Our 170+ quality courses and our optimal weather make practically any month an ideal time for a golf retreat. And the appeal of our state doesn’t stop after the 18th hole. A host of sporting activities -- including swimming, hiking, biking, tennis, soccer, baseball and more – are also widely available.

Capital/River Region

Capital/River Region

From the capital city of Jackson to the historic river towns of Natchez and Vicksburg, the Capital/River Region is a study in contrasts. Golf course layouts range from wide, open flatlands to tight, water-laden fairways. Each November, the area is host to the PGA TOUR Sanderson Farms Classic at The Country Club of Jackson.

The Refuge and Patrick Farms are located close to Jackson-Evers International Airport, giving true golf enthusiasts a chance for a quick round immediately upon landing, or a last few holes before takeoff to round out a perfect golfing getaway.

Quail Hollow, located in McComb at Percy Quin State Park, was designed by well-known architect Arthur Hills. Golf villas are available at the state park, providing modern amenities and comfortable accommodations nestled beside the award-winning golf course. Natchez is home to two legendary courses: Beau Pre’, designed by Mike Young, and Duncan Park, built in 1928. The Mississippi River town of Vicksburg challenges even the most seasoned golfers with the Clear Creek Golf Course and the historic Vicksburg Country Club, built in 1930.

While great golf courses are plentiful in this region, you’ll have an equally rewarding time off the course, enjoying an abundance of art, cultural and historic sites, as well as music, entertainment, and some of the finest restaurants the south has to offer.

Coastal Region

Coastal Region

Our Coastal Region is located in the southeastern corner of the state, stretching from Hattiesburg and Laurel to the Gulf Coast cities of Biloxi and Gulfport and encompassing the quaint seaside towns of Ocean Springs, Pass Christian and Bay St. Louis.

This region is an exciting mix of award-winning golf, entertaining nightlife, intriguing history and stunning scenery. Golfers seeking warmer winter temperatures have ventured to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for years. The area gained broader popularity when luxurious casino resorts opened along the coast, each accompanied with its own world-class golf course.

Some of the best course designers in the game, Tom Fazio (Fallen Oak), Jerry Pate (The Preserve and Canebrake), Mark McCumber (Windance and Timberton), Davis Love III (Shell Landing), Arnold Palmer (The Bridges) and Jack Nicklaus (Grand Bear) have made their lasting imprint on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Each spring, the Champions TOUR Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic is played at Fallen Oak.

Pass Christian is the site of the Oaks Golf Club, designed by Landmark National of PGA West and Kiawah fame. Toward the western stretch of the coastline, Diamondhead Country Club features two courses (the Pine and the Cardinal) designed by renowned regional architects Earl Stone and John LaFoy.

Gulfport’s Great Southern Golf Club is steeped in tradition. Designed in 1908 by one of the greatest golf course architects of all time, Donald Ross, Great Southern is the oldest golf course in the state. Legendary golfers Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Gene Sarazen and Babe Zaharias played this course, along with amateur enthusiasts like President Woodrow Wilson.

Just east of Biloxi in Ocean Springs, Gulf Hills Golf Club has been an integral part of the Mississippi golfing landscape since 1927. A frequent hangout of Al Capone, the course became a dude ranch in the 1950’s and was a popular haunt of Hollywood celebrities, drawing A-List visitors like Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis and Elvis Presley.

Architect Earl Stone designed a splendid golfing experience at Mississippi National Golf Club, the site of many high-profile events, including the former Nike Tour.

Thrilling casino action and magnificent golf courses come together along our Gulf Coast to create an unforgettable vacation. Combined with moderate temperatures, luxurious lodging, historical attractions, and exciting entertainment, music and dining, there is never a dull moment. And with nonstop air service into the Gulfport/Biloxi International Airport continually expanding, the getaway of your dreams is closer – and more convenient – than you think.

Delta Region

Delta Region

Mississippi’s Delta Region is defined by its wide, open fields of cotton, picturesque small towns and thriving casino resorts. The flatlands of this region contain some of the most fertile soil in the world, as evidenced by the verdant green fairways of its golf courses.

The Delta Region’s most popular golf area is Tunica Resorts, located 35 minutes south of Memphis. Tunica Resorts offers two distinctly different courses, each with its own set of challenges. The latest addition, Tunica National, offers an exciting 7,210-yard championship layout designed by former PGA TOUR player Mark McCumber. The other half of this magnificent twosome is River Bend Links, situated near Hollywood Casino, Resorts Tunica and Sam’s Town. The lush, Scottish links-style course plays to 6,900 yards from the tips and features sand and grass bunkers, plus unique and strategic mounding. For a truly memorable time, check out our annual Golf & Blues event in October, featuring six days of golf, music and fun offered by Golf Packages Etc. 

Your time off the links will be equally exciting, as the region invites you to enjoy a host of non-golf activities -- including 24/7 casino action, boating, fishing, bird-watching, hiking, biking, hunting, camping and more.

Hills Region

Hills Region

The highest elevations in the state are found in The Hills Region, where the foothills of the Appalachians dip into Mississippi and create some of the state’s most beautiful and breathtaking views. The rolling countryside makes for invigorating on-course challenges, and the beautiful vistas provide a scenic backdrop for each round.

DeSoto County, located near Memphis, boasts four championship golf courses, which together create the foundation for an affordable and varied golf vacation. The city of Olive Branch is home to three of these courses (Cherokee Valley Golf Club, Plantation Golf Club and Wedgewood Golf Club), while nearby Southaven is home to North Creek Golf Club.

A short distance southeast of DeSoto County sits the challenging Kirkwood National Golf Club in Holly Springs. Cottages are available, offering the comfort and luxury of first-class accommodations at the end of the day.

Golfers who appreciate an exceptional value flock to the region’s two state park courses: Mallard Pointe at John W. Kyle State Park in Sardis (designed by Bob Cupp), and The Dogwoods at Hugh White State Park in Grenada (designed by Gary Roger Baird). Each offers affordable green fees, comfortable lodging and a variety of other outdoor activities. The Dogwoods course has been named one of the top five “Best New Affordable Courses” in the US by Golf Digest.

Located in east-central Mississippi along the Alabama border, The Pines Region consists of rolling countryside covered with hardwoods. The largest city in the region, Meridian, is home to several appealing courses. The area has a powerful golf pedigree as well, boasting the two highest rated clubs in the state: Old Waverly Golf Club and Dancing Rabbit Golf Club.

Ranked the best in the state by Golf Digest, Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point combines the look and feel of the Scottish Highlands with a graceful Old South setting. Designed by former U.S. Open champion Jerry Pate and Bob Cupp, Old Waverly Golf Club proudly hosted the 1999 U.S. Women’s Open and is slated to host the LPGA Legends Handa Cup in September 2014. Visitors who stay in one of the on-site cottages are allowed to play this private course.

Expect a memorable experience at Dancing Rabbit Golf Club, located at Pearl River Resort in Choctaw. Its two courses, the Azaleas and the Oaks, were built on the ancestral lands of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians. Each course bears the distinctive touch of architects Tom Fazio and Jerry Pate. The resort itself boasts three hotels, exciting casino gaming and a number of first rate dining establishments.
