Where2Golf says: 

The Bridges Golf Club at Hollywood Casino Resort, sits alongside the expansive Bay St Louis, which you'll enjoy views over from several holes. Generally recognised as one of Mississippi's top-quality and most challenging layouts, this is the only Arnold Palmer design on Mississippi's Gulf Coast. The opening par-5 dog-legs round a good-sized pond, the first of many such small lakes and ponds you'll encounter along the way.
Laid out on relatively flat terrain, with enough earth moving to create gently rolling fairways, the course pleasantly weaves its way through a mix of pine forest and wetland areas. From time-to-time the course opens out as it moves into the expansive marshlands that flank Bay St Louis. Here you will find holes like the very scenic and testing par-3 7th, requiring a tee-to-green carry over the wetland, and the equally challenging, risk-reward, short par-4 8th. Plenty of reeds await anything hit too far offline on either of these two excellent holes. Neat, sharp-edged and sometimes quite deep bunkering is liberally deployed to provide solid defences around the typically large and undulating greens. The course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game without intrusion from housing or roads. A must play if you are in the area.

Stay & Play at The Bridges, the Hollywood Casino Hotel offers on-site accommodation (see Where2Stay section below).

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
