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).

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. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
