Hidden Ross gem
Actually, it’s hard calling the Great Southern Golf Club in Biloxi hidden – it’s been there for about a hundred years. I can see where a lot of big hitters might look at the yardage – 6,236 yards from the back tees – and scoff. Until they played it.
The greens remind me of the greens Donald Ross also did at Pinehurst No. 2: they’re small and elevated and fall off dramatically – landing a soft approach shot is a must if you want to score well there. Ross has the same strategically placed bunkers here and throws some other small treacheries at you, which I won’t give away yet. It’s a terrific, fun little course, with the warm breezes blowing directly off the Gulf.
The place is a living museum, and I mean that in the best sense. When they get the new clubhouse renovated – it was built back in the 1920s – I’d say this is a must-play. Look for my full review coming soon to TravelGolf.
