Better be sticking your irons.

The course is not all that long even from the tips. What makes this course good are the greens. They have nice speed and are much smaller than they appear. Many of the greens have severe slopes near the edge which repel shots away from the putting surface. Play to the middle of the green is good strategy on this course. Thoroughly enjoyed the round and will be back.

Great value for the money.

Was very impressed with the condition of the greens. Course was damp due to rain but fairways were relatively dry. Tee boxes were below average. Practice range and facilities are below average. Staff is very friendly. Overall, it’s a good place to play.

The course is in great shape.

The course is in the best shape I’ve seen it in years. My group will continue to play there regularly!

Nice course for money.

Clubhouse amenities and food are poor. Please offer more food. Hot dogs are never cooked always raw.

Course Is In Great Shape

I live in a neighboring town but haven't played Sunkist in over two years. The course is in as good a shape as I have seen it in years. The area has received a large amount of rain lately but the course drained well. Only a few of the holes had areas marked off as "Cart Path Only".

Great time

The course was fun and the staff were very nice. We had scheduled a 3pm tee time but showed up an hour early and the starter was more than good about getting us out early as well. Had a few drinks after the round, the server was super.

5 star for the greens

Friendly staff. Greens were rolling real nice and in great shape. Course was great for the price. One of our favorite courses to play in the Biloxi area especially for the price. A forgiving but challenging course with distances on par 4’s
