The state’s 2007 Golf Guide lists information about courses, accommodations and package information, including breaking down the info into Mississippi’s five diverse topographical and cultural regions:
The Delta – birthplace of the Blues and comprised of Northwestern flatlands
The Hills – home of gently rolling, Northeastern landscapes
The Pines – located in the Central-East part of the state and blanketed with quiet forests
The Capital/River – with its winding waterways and rich history in the state’s Central-Southwest
The Coastal – located in the South and featuring the Gulf of Mexico’s sparkling water and beaches
