Detailed description of Mississippi State University Golf Club

Mississippi State University Golf Club, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Starkville, Mississippi.

Opened to the public in 1986, the 6,927-yard, par-72 course is equipped with a state-of-the-art computerized drainage system that enables the links to remain open throughout the winter golf season. Complete with gently rolling hills and an imposing tree line, the course offers an adventure from all three tee boxes at each hole, challenging golfers with water at nine of the 18 holes, as well as an abundance of strategically placed bunkers.

The course was designed by Brian Ault. The architectural design of our golf course provides a mix of both playable and challenging golf holes. It is rare to play MSU and not use every club in your bag. Holes #3, #5, and #15 are all long par 4s lined with large, mature pine trees and out-of-bounds stakes; they are a true test of patience and courage. The ninth hole, 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 is John Daly.

The design variety of the university course is evident. The par 3s all vary in length and a different club is needed on each. The par 5s, other than #9, each provide ample landing areas for a safe lay up as well as wonderful risk reward opportunities to go for the green in two. The hills of the land provide fun elevation changes and the large number of mature trees that cover the course pose a challenge to those that are hitting the ball off line.

The esthetics and memorability of the course come together on the three lakeside holes, #16, #17, and #18. 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.

Home to the MSU golf team, guests can practice right beside team members on the course's driving range, putting green and short game practice facility. The course also serves as the official golf facility of the MSU College of Business and Industry's Professional Golf Management Program (PGM).
