Golf Course Information
The Mississippi State University Golf Course is the host facility for the MSU PGA Golf Management program and MSU Men's & Women's Golf Teams.
The 18-hole Brian Ault design, 6,972 yard championship golf course is ranked among the top 30 university owned golf courses in the country according to Golfweek Magazine.
In January, 1996, Golf Digest listed the University Golf Course as the fifth-best public course in the state of Mississippi. In a 1995 end-of-the-year supplement, Mississippi State's 18-hole course was included in the 1996-97 "Places to Play" listing, an honor also received by MSU in 1994 and 1991. Also in the December supplement, Golf Digest called the University Golf Course the "best college course in the South," adding it was "challenging, but fair" with a "fun, walkable layout."
The architectural design of the golf course provides a mix of both playable and challenging golf holes. It is rare to play the MSU Golf Course and not use every club in your bag. Holes #6, #12, and #14 are long par 4s lined with large, mature pine trees and out-of-bounds stakes; they are a true test of patience and courage. The eighteenth hole, was a 650 yard par 5, is a demanding dog-leg left that has only been reached in two shots twice, one of the players to accomplish this feat was John Daly.
The esthetics of the course come together on the three lakeside holes, #7, #8, and #9. These holes have a 40 acre lake running along the left side and large trees running down the right side. The beautiful landscape of Mississippi farmland can be seen across the lake, creating a sense of serenity while playing these three picturesque yet difficult golf holes.
In 2011, Nathan Crace designed a new practice facility for the men's & women's golf team and in doing so redesigned #10 & #18, with a recognizable "Paw" as the final finishing green.
Working with the MSU Forestry Department, 10,000 trees have been planted in 2012 & 2013. With volunteers from the Forestry Club and community members, once these mature, it will give the course a whole new look.
