Mississippi Golf Packages Offer Great Value
Five Distinct Regions in the State, an Array of Lodging Choices and Price Points Provide Something for Every Taste
There are few more value-laden golf destinations than the Magnolia State, an increasingly popular choice of discerning travelers thanks to its variety of courses, resorts, state parks, after-golf activities, and other attractions and venues catering to visitors.
Earlier this spring, 10 courses in the state were honored by a national golf magazine's best-in-kind list for 2010 - double the previous number so honored and indicative of Mississippi's growing reputation as a must-visit destination. Overall, the state offers more than 153 golf courses in five distinct regions (The Delta, The Hills, The Pines, The Capital/River, The Coastal) with a variety of price points and designs.
Here is a selection of some stay-and-play golf packages currently being offered in the state. For others go to www.visitmississippi.org or call toll-free 1-866-801-8551 and receive a free Golf Travel Guide and suggested play-and-stay itineraries.
