The Grand Bear...excellent layout, beautifully maintained and a courteous staff made this an unforgettable day. We played the Brown Bear tees and were definitely challenged! This course is in the league with Doral... kudos to Jack.

I played this course and shell landing on my latest trip. By, far this course was superior to shell landing. First off, no big bugs flying around your heads. Secondly, Jack is a much better designer than DLIII.
The greens had just been verta cut, but they still rolled true.
I would make this course a must play when you visit Biloxi.

The Best course I have played in my life. I have only played at about 20 course but this is the best so far. ONCE you get to it! It is way back in the woods but you wont hear anything but the wind and birds once your there. That is part of what makes it so great.
Not the hardest course I have played but I enjoyed everything about it. Maintained very very well and what else can I say but this is a MUST PLAY COURSE!!!

This course was one of the best I have ever played! It runs through a forest with a creek/river that runs along several holes. The course was in great shape, and the staff was friendly and helpful. It is about a 20 minute drive from Gulfport, but it is well worth the trip. I'd highly recommend this course if you are in the area.

one of my all time favorite places to play. I have not been there since Katrina but here all is back to better than normal. I am dying to get back. This Nicklaus Gem is like a private park through a national forest. No homes anywhere to be seen. beautiful place and beautiful track. can score here but only with great iron play and putting.
