The Bridges Golf Club at Hollywood Casino

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1997

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.
