Welcome to the Great Southern Golf Club -- the birthplace of golf in Mississippi. The Great Southern is also among the top 20 oldest golf courses in the United States and was once a regular stop on the professional golf tour. Former U.S. Presidents and many of the great legends of golf played here (see our amazing History). The unique location overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and Mississippi Sound enhances the golf experience with magnificent sea and sky vistas and fresh ocean breezes. The golf course was designed and insppired by world-famous golf course designer Donald Ross in 1908. The first nine holes were built in 1908 and Mr. Ross' vision of the second was completed in 1922. In 1999, the golf course was completely updated and modernized to PGA standards. In 2013 and 2014 we completed major renovations and improvements that make the golf course an outstanding golf experience and value for members and guests. The course is challenging and enjoyable for all levels of players, men and women, and young and old. Also, our new 4,800 square-foot clubhouse features The 1908 Bar and Grill and Pro Shop, open daily 7 AM to 8 PM.
