Golf courses springing up
Link - The number of golf courses affiliated with Coast casinos will double in the next few years.
Two of the three new courses will open by next spring: Beau Rivage's Fallen Oak and an unnamed course in Jackson County being developed by the owner of the Palace Casino. The third course is connected to the proposed Bacaran Bay Casino.
Each has a celebrity designer. Tom Fazio, the famous golf architect, is responsible for Fallen Creek. Former professional golfer Jerry Pate is doing the Jackson County course slated to open next spring. And golf great Arnold Palmer is planning the Bacaran Bay course.
