THE PRESERVE GOLF CLUB NAMED ONE OF
GOLFWEEK’S BEST NEW COURSES

October 27, 2008----Its official, The Preserve Golf Club, located just two miles north of I-10 on Highway 57 on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, has been selected as one of Golfweek’s Best New Courses. The Preserve Golf Club, listed as number six on the magazine’s list of 50 best new golf courses, is the only Mississippi golf course to make the list.

According to Golfweek magazine, their course rankings are based on input from nearly 500 raters and based on 10 criteria, which is graded on a 10 point scale. Each course’s scores are then averaged to get the overall rating. Golfweek defines new courses as those having opened in the past two years to give the raters enough time to visit courses, thereby making the ratings statistically valid, states the magazine.

The Preserve Golf Club was also listed in Golf Digest’s Best New Courses earlier this year. “The Preserve Golf Club is honored to have been selected by both Golfweek and Golf Digest for these prestigious rankings,” stated Stephen Miles, Preserve Golf Club General Manager. “Our staff strives to provide the highest levels of course conditioning, superior amenities and outstanding guest service to provide a truly enjoyable golf experience for all levels of players,” Miles continued.

Designed by U.S. Open Champion, Jerry Pate, the Preserve Golf Club is a 18-hole, par 71 championship public course, surrounded by 1800 acres of nature conservancy preserve, protecting it forever from the disturbances of development. From the first hole to the eighteenth, the native species and surrounding preserve dictate the layout of the 245-acre course. Tall, slender long leaf pines line the fairways, wooden bridges cross the wetlands and majestic live oaks reach over the course. Wild, wiry grasses disperse texture and color against the smooth rolling greens.

The Preserve Golf Club is proud member of the Audubon International, and was recently
recognized as a “Certified Silver Audubon International Signature Sanctuary.” From the initial planning to the daily watering, everything is done with the highest regard for the natural surroundings.

The Preserve Golf Club is located just minutes from Biloxi, less than an hour from Mobile and little over an hour from New Orleans. But, golfers feel like they’re a million miles away from it all. Even the course details, like wooden accessories and hidden cart paths, were all carefully crafted to limit distraction from the spectacular natural beauty of the surroundings, allowing golfers to experience golf the way nature intended.
