Mallard Pointe Golf Course is a route operated by the Mississippi department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. It was designed by Bob Cupp during 1997. Located less than an hour south of Memphis, Tennessee, it’s one of the better public options available to residents of two states.
The Sardis Lake was one of the first created by Franklin Roosevelt’s Flood Control Act, and Mallard Pointe now sits on the lake’s northwest shore. Although the course does not come into contact with the water, the final few holes will edge near where the cliffs overlooking the water. The lake will come into view to the right of No. 17; players may be more interested in making sure their drive stays away from the vast drop off to the right, however. Still, a 300-yard drive from the back tees will reach the green on this slight dogleg...if you’re willing to take the beeline over the drop off.
No. 18 will give you less choice in whether to take the adventurous route. Most second shots on this 457-par four will need to carry a wild area on the right side of the fairway.
