Thursday, November 7, 2013
Towering 32 stories above the shimmering waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Beau Rivage Resort & Casino invites you to play the odds in “The Playground of the South.” The vibrant city of Biloxi, Miss., plays host to this AAA Four Diamond-rated resort, which offers an unrivaled casino golf getaway experience that comes complete with unsurpassed luxury, quality and entertainment.
Wholly-owned by MGM Resorts International, Beau Rivage boasts an 85,000-square-foot Mediterranean-themed casino, which features 2,029 slot machines, 221 video poker games, 88 table games, coinless gaming options and a two-tiered poker room with 16 poker games. Beau Rivage’s newest gaming area also includes a luxurious high-stakes area that functions as a “casino within a casino,” thanks to high-limit tables and slot machines, an exclusive buffet and bar lounge, dedicated cashier services and around-the-clock concierge service.
But the resort’s real ace in the hole is its championship golf course, which offers a whole new level of exhilaration. Created exclusively for guests of Beau Rivage, the Tom Fazio-designed course at Fallen Oak has received more than 30 national awards and recognition as one of the top courses in the country. Fallen Oak sweeps across 510 acres of native wetlands, marshes, pecan groves and hardwood forests, challenging golfers to adapt to the ever-changing landscape. Stretching to a hardy 7,487 yards from the tips, Fallen Oak offers golfers five sets of tees and endless strategic play options as it winds through the varied terrain of the great Magnolia State. Sprawling bunkers, plush fairways, dramatic elevation changes and gently rolling greens deliver an exceptional challenge that tests every element of a golfer’s game.
And as a perfect complement to the course, Beau Rivage also boasts a 12,000-square-foot clubhouse. Built to resemble an Acadian-style Southern mansion, this extraordinary facility features panoramic views of the 18th hole, as well as the majestic live oak that gives Fallen Oak its name.
