On the banks of Mississippi’s beautiful Bay of St. Louis, set among 600 acres of moss-draped live oaks, stately pines, magnolias and sweeping vistas of saltwater marsh, lies the canvas for an extraordinary golf experience : The Bridges golf club
Named as one of Golf Week’s “Top 50 Casino Course 2013” and “Best Courses You Can Play”, The Bridges Golf Club at Hollywood Casino is Mississippi’s only Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. This 18-hole masterpiece is ranked among the Top 40 casino courses in the country and Top 10 courses in the state by Golf Digest and Golfweek.
This 6,900-yard, par 72 signature masterpiece is a work of art sculpted by one of the century’s great players and nationally-renowned golf course architect Arnold Palmer. Consistently rated among the top golf course architects in the country, Palmer has taken a superb gift of land and water and crafted it into a rare test of sport and spirit. Over 21 bridges, spanning nearly one mile in length, and bulkheads are incorporated into this magnificent layout.
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.
The Bridges is the first resort golf course in the world to obtain Audubon International’s Certified Silver Signature status which displays one of Palmer’s greatest design strengths of working in harmony with nature.
The Bridges Golf Club features on-site golf packages, group outings/tournaments, an award-winning golf shop, beverage cart service, meeting rooms, banquet facilities, locker room with showers, locker rental, club rental, full-service 11-acre practice facility, golf instruction and close to the Gulf Coast beaches. Centrally located just a short drive away from New Orleans and Biloxi.
