After you’ve narrowed down a time to visit Tunica, select a golf course that you and your crew will enjoy. Two of the most popular golf courses in Tunica include Tunica National Golf and Tennis and River Bend Links Golf Course. Each includes its own assortment of amenities as well as a golf shop, where visitors can stock up on extra balls, tees, and other essentials. Learn more about them below:
At this championship course, you and your group can receive pro-level golf instruction before the big tournament and relive your favorite moments in the clubhouse at the end of each round. The course also features four indoor clay tennis courts.
Located near the Mississippi River, this Scottish links-style layout provides a scenic spot to swing your clubs. Use the practice facilities to warm up and perfect your technique before the main event, and grab a bite at The Restaurant at River Bend Link afterward.
Find a prime time to visit during golf season, and be sure to check the long-term forecast for your getaway. Whether you prefer to tee off in the morning or sink your final putt as the sun goes down, having the weather on your side can make your outing enjoyable for all. With comfortable temperatures, low humidity, and a slight breeze, you’ll feel at home on the lush golf courses of Tunica. Plus, it makes post-round cocktails at the 19th hole even more enjoyable.
Booking your tee times and hotel and restaurant reservations in advance can help your golf getaway run like clockwork. Check out the golf packages at each course, as well as the stay-and-play options your preferred hotel offers. From in-house restaurants at the hotels and delicious local fare, a host of dining options is available as well. Plus, many of the golf courses are located near the casinos in the area, so Tunica entertainment is never far away.
Aside from hitting the links, be sure to schedule a time to explore local hot spots during your stay. Local venues can sweeten the deal for you and your crew with comedy shows, bands, and seasonal festivals. A must-see is our Gateway to the Blues Museum and Visitors Center, where you can learn the story of how the Blues was born and how Tunica ties into the genre. With a vibrant nightlife scene, the downtown area is a popular destination for many visitors. Plus, if your golf trip coincides with a concert or sporting event at one of the casinos, there’ll be plenty to do between rounds.
