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

Bad start good finish

Jerry I believe in the clubhouse was great but the starter was upset at me and the person I was playing with.. So The group of 5 or 6 in front of us were waiting for one guy to tee off so they were gonna let us go ahead since we only had two but the starter made it an issue being upset saying “we needed to wait cause we booked our tee time using golfnow and that the course doesn’t make any money off of it so we needed to wait till exactly our tee time.” I said politely that they said we could go if we wait there could be an issue with traffic when the course is wide open. Finally he let us go and once we finished #2 that group finally teed off of #1 and sure enough they were holding a different group up but after that it was smooth sailing until #11 but the course was in great shape for the time of the year and the rain we’ve had. I will def go back but I thought that interaction wasn’t kinda unwarranted we were doing proper golf etiquette and everything.
