Situated next to the DeSoto National Forest, the 18-hole layout at Grand Bear is a Jack Nicklaus design that until 2017 was operated by Harrah’s Gulf Coast & Casino in Biloxi. Grand Bear is now owned by VICI Properties Inc. The course opened for play in 1999 and it’s regarded as a tough track.

The fairways were literally carved from a dense pine forest, routed in two large loops through a 1,700-acre property, with no two holes running parallel to one another. It’s an idyllic site, without roads or homes or anything else to distract golfers from their game of golf.

Cypress wetland areas come into play from time to time throughout the round and the Big Biloxi River makes an appearance near the end of the round at holes 15 to 17. The 448-yard 18th is devoid of water but it’s still a strong finishing hole, rated stroke index 2 on the card.

Jack Nicklaus

Jack Nicklaus will forever be associated with greatness on the golf course, but it’s his design work that should also be remembered in equal measure to his magnificent competitive achievements on the links.
