This course is a "must play"when in the Biloxi area. A very interesting design with good size fast greens. I played on 2/1/2017, and the course was in great shape. Wish I could play this impressive course more often.

If you are looking for a great course and a sample of Mississippi Gulf Coast golf?? This is the one for you. I played the Blue tees. It is good sample of all the holes, perfect for mid to low handicappers . The white tee is great for 15 and over handicap. Have fun it is worth the drive.

Very nice course with very friendly staff. Left my club somewhere in the from 7 holes, I let the staff know at the turn. It was in the mangers office waiting for me when we finished our round. Little price on drinks but what can you do. Not an easy course either.

Davis Love III course with fair amount of water and wilderness areas in play. Heavily bunkered. Big, undulating greens. Chsllenging but fair. Played on a soggy Sunday morning in 3:30 in a threesome.

Shell Landing is a tough course but I found as a Senior Player that moving to the White tees was the way to go .. This made the course very playable and with 7 pars felt that the green in regulation was fair for a 16 handicap --course took a lot of rain from Bad wetaher but even after that... More

Played here on our second trip to Biloxi. It was recommended by a local that we'd met in the Julep Room at Aunt Jenny's restaurant. We had been leaning toward playing the Bridges, but he was the second person to discourage that course based on difficulty. He said "You will not feel good about yourself after playing there". We came... More

Great course, fair but challenging for women, we always play anytime we go to Biloxi for gambling...only issue are the no seeums...little bugs that come off the water, but bug spray fixes that....very enjoyable course and personnel.

The course was incredible. The views are nice and the course was in great shape. The fairway bunkers are deep and should be avoided. My only complaints are that the starter was extremely rude and tried to force us to pair up with someone when it was not necessary. He also had a terrible attitude and overall not a nice... More
