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

One of the 7 courses our group played on our golf trip. It was a nice venue. Greens were in good shape and rolled true. Fairways were firm with good turf. Club house was nothing fancy, but fully met our needs for a cold beverage and quick lunch between the morning individual round and afternoon's 9 hole scramble.

I recently had the chance to play six different golf courses on a five day spring break trip. Here are the pro / con of your options in Biloxi / Gulfport. All were nice, included Shell Landing, but it was the least attractive value, in my opinion. Shell Landing My 6th choice. Around $90. Locals can definitely get a better... More

Not willing to pay for a beginning golfer at Fallen Oaks I asked them to recommend some other courses in the area and one they mentioned was Shell Landing. It was a good for a beginner and high handicapper. It has a few forced carries for all of the tees but they are not overdone. The course was in good... More

Great course, well manicured, not impossible to play, and reasonably priced. They've recently poured a lot of cash-ola into upgrades, and it shows. Greens are plush and cuts are precise. Nice layout, with hills and sand mixed in with marsh areas and of course, water. Not easy for the average golfer, but not too difficult either. Clubhouse is beautiful, with... More

The golf course is challenging but not impossible to play. There are beautiful surroundings. We had a great time.

We always enjoying playing here. The greens are fast, smooth, and in great condition. We play from the senior tees and this makes the course more playable for us. prices are inline with other courses on the Coast. The staff are also very nice and friendly.

The course itself was in very good condition. Fairways were good and greens were fast and in excellent condition. Many of the tee boxes have a lot of sand which does make it a little challenging on par 3's. Course is very forgiving and fairly wide open. Upon arrival there is no one to greet you at the bag drop.... More

The course was recommended to me by the bell captain at the Beau Rivage--good choice. Off the beaten path in a small development near Hwy 90 it was the drive from the hotel. Green fees during the week are approximately $79-$99 (cart included) and worth it. They allowed my wife to ride along with no charge. The course is not... More
