Sure, you know that with so many casino hotels in an area Tunica has become one of the Mid-South's top gaming destinations. But did you know that with Stay-and-play packages offered by these hotels, Tunica is one of the more economical golf vacations in the country?!
- Tunica National Golf and Tennis - Tunica National is a challenging but playable course. Designed by Mark McCumber, this public 18-hole course features Champion Bermuda greens, gently rolling zoysia fairways, tee boxes with six markers, and generous landing areas that both pros and regular Joes enjoy. The use of water is limited and the course uses deep bunkering, mounds, and undulations to make the course’s 6,923 yards more difficult. The championship golf facilities and indoor clay tennis courts offer player-friendly green and court fees. A beautifully constructed clubhouse includes a pro shop and an excellent restaurant.
- River Bend Links - River Bend is a Scottish links-style course at Sam's Town Hotel & Casino in Tunica, MS. Designed by golf course architect Clyde Johnson, this Par 72, 6,900-yard course features lakes, sand, grass bunkers and strategically placed mounds. Built next to the Mississippi River and surrounded by nature, you may still see the random deer, fox or wild turkey during your round. River Bend Links features a pro shop, practice facilities, restaurant and bar.
Both of these courses offer stay-and-play packages that combine golf and a room at some of the area’s top casinos.
Didn't plan ahead? No problem...the golf courses in Tunica are particularly expensive, especially during the week. So take some time to enjoy the beautiful scenery and enjoy golf in Tunica!
