After retiring last year, my wife and I decided to move permanently to our favorite snowbird stop, the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I’m an avid golfer – so I want easy access to a great course – but I don’t necessarily want for stray balls to land in my backyard. Where is my best bet for the amenities I want and the privacy I need?

The Coast has many excellent golf courses and with our climate you can enjoy year round! There are several golf course communities like The Oaks in Pass Christian; Timber Ridge, Windance,Diamondhead, Sunkist, Shell Landing, but you don’t have to limit yourself to those. If you are worried about stray balls, try to find a house or lot as close to the tee off as you can be! The Coast is home to many public courses with lovely homes nearby in nearly every community.
