Most people know the Palace Casino Resort as one of Biloxi’s most popular destinations for gambling and luxury resort vacations. What they don’t realize is that it’s also home to one of the area’s best golf courses, The Preserve Golf Club. Avid golfers visiting from afar can read on to find out what to expect from this pristine and popular Golf Course in Biloxi, MS locals love.
The Preserve is an 18-hole, par-71 course on 245 acres set in the midst of a beautiful, scenic 1,800-acre nature preserve. The course was designed by Jerry Pate, an award-winning course designer and winner of the U.S. Open. Pate did more than just create a beautiful golf course, though. He used his experience and training to incorporate the native surroundings into the course so that golfers can take in the cypress swamps, live oak groves, and rolling native grass prairies while they engage in the world’s favorite game.
The Preserve is also home to a warm and welcoming clubhouse that is open to members and visitors alike. Upon arrival, golfers at the clubhouse are greeted with warm Southern hospitality by a host and introduced to all available amenities offered, which include the Sweetbay Restaurant, a pro shop, and a large conference room available for use by business professionals.
Each golfer at The Preserve will be provided with everything required to enjoy a peaceful day out on the course, including a state-of-the-art golf cart fully equipped with Visage GPS system, detailed yardage books and complimentary bottled water. On those hot Coastal Mississippi days, guests will be given chilled towels, and on cool mornings they’ll appreciate the comfort of the facility’s heated restrooms.
The Preserve Golf Club is a step above just a professionally designed course set in a beautiful nature preserve. The natural pristine 18 hole Preserve course layout has been granted membership to the Audubon International Signature Program and received an official designation as a Certified Silver Signature Sanctuary from the organization in May 2007. Only 21 golf courses in the world have been awarded this prestigious designation.
The Preserve’s founders chose to join the Audubon International Signature Program not just because it confers prestige but because they wanted to show their dedication to sustainable development and the environmental health of the property. The course and facilities were designed and installed only after comprehensive environmental site planning. Since its construction, The Preserve’s leaders and members have maintained the same dedication to protecting the natural environment and maintaining a pristine golf course.
As a result of the course’s excellent design and the resort’s standing as one of the most popular Biloxi luxury hotels, the course has received numerous accolades, including:
- Ranked Top 5 Course in Mississippi each year by Golfweek.
- Golf Digest – Top 10 Golf Course in Mississippi each year.
- Golfweek 2013: #2 Golf Course in Mississippi
