Fallen Oak golf course to reopen on 11 July

29 June 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Fallen Oak welcomes golfers back to the Tom Fazio-designed course Saturday, 11 July. The renowned course, available exclusively to guests of Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, reopens for play following its temporary closure due to COVID-19.

“We are thrilled to reopen Fallen Oak to our guests in a safe manner. This spectacular course is a signature element of Beau Rivage, and it represents another piece of the reopening puzzle that is now put in place,” said Beau Rivage President and COO Travis Lunn. “Our resort is well-known for its amenities, and Fallen Oak and its beautiful natural canvas deliver guest experiences that are unrivaled.”

Beginning 11 July, tee times will be available Thursday-Sunday from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. with golfers spaced at 20-minute intervals. Stay-and-play hotel packages are available starting at $600, and include one room, greens fees for one foursome and a $50 food and beverage credit or Beau Rivage gift card.

With its dramatic elevation changes, wide fairways, rolling terrain and more than 4,000 stately oaks, magnolias, pecans, pines and hardwood trees interspersed with ponds, streams and wetlands, the 510-acre, par-72 Fallen Oak offers five sets of tees and strategic play options to challenge golfers of all skill levels. An Acadian-style 12,000-square foot clubhouse features top-level dining and a panoramic view of the 18th hole, as well as the majestic live that gives Fallen Oak its name.

Nestled on the edge of the De Soto National Forest, a short drive from Beau Rivage, Fallen Oak was designed to preserve the natural landscape of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Home to a PGA TOUR Champions tournament and a perineal favorite amongst players, the course has consistently ranked as the best course in Mississippi by Golf Digest and Golfweek and for more than a decade has held the No. 2 position on Golfweek’s Best Casino Course list, behind Shadow Creek, the only other course owned by MGM Resorts International.

Fallen Oak will adhere to operational health and safety guidelines established by the USGA, GCSAA, and PGA, including:

  • Providing hand sanitizer, face mask, tees, ball markers, scorecard and disposable pencil at check-in. Golfers must handle their own scorecard.
  • Limiting to one person per golf cart, only sharing a cart with a travel companion.
  • Providing lined, disinfected coolers on carts.
  • Spacing ranges at least six feet apart, cleaning and sanitizing golf balls after each pick of the driving range.
  • Sanitizing golf carts before and after each guest use.
