The Links at Cottonwoods: GOLF COURSE WAS CLOSED IN 2014, and has remained closed thru' end-2016. Check for current status before planning a visit.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Harrah's Tunica Resort, sitting alongside the Mississippi River, is home to three hotels, convention facilities, a large casino and impressive 18-hole championship golf course.

The Links at Cottonwood, as its name suggests, offers Scottish links-style golf on a layout that was originally crafted from flat, open cotton fields. The Hale Irwin designed and almost treeless layout, incorporates plenty of dune-like mounding topped with long fescue grasses, which define the good-width, rippling fairways. Good bunkering and slick run-off areas around the large, undulating greens further add to the course's Scottish-links feel. Significant water hazards come into play on a few occasions, not least at the par-4 5th, with a large pond awaiting anything hit too far right off the tee.

Two of the strongest holes are the par-3 16th and par-5 17th. Both are played alongside water, this time an expansive lake, across which is the resort's Veranda Hotel. With no housing or roads around the course, and only flat cotton fields beyond much of the perimeter (characteristic of this historic Mississippi "Delta" region), your full concentration can be given to building a good score on this good-quality, enjoyable course.

Stay & Play at the Links at Cottonwoods, Harrah's Tunica Resort offers on-site accommodation (see Where2Stay section below).
