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

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
