Fallen Oak Factsheet

FACT SHEET
 
Fallen Oak was designed by Tom Fazio. It opened in 2006 to rave reviews and debuted at No. 19 on Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses. Golfweek ranks it the best golf course “you can play” in Mississippi and for the eight straight year, has named Fallen Oak the No. 2 Casino Course in the country, behind only sister-course Shadow Creek, also designed by Fazio.
 
COURSE LOCATION: Fallen Oak is located 15 miles north of Beau Rivage Resort on a 510-acre tract in Biloxi, Mississippi. The course runs adjacent to the DeSoto National Forest. It is open exclusively to Beau Rivage Resort guests.
 
NATURAL FEATURES: Fallen Oak is characterized by a lush, rolling landscape covered in oak and pine ridges, magnolias, pecan groves, large lakes, winding streams and wetlands. The course features 10 bridges and concealed cart paths to protect the natural features of the terrain.

  •  A Sub air drainage system, which alternately heats and vacuums moisture out of the greens to keep them consistent and healthy.
  • Tiff eagle Bermuda grass (greens), 419 Bermuda grass (fairways), zoysia grass (flanking the bunkers and creeks) and native Bahia grass (flanking the course).
  • Transplanting of more than 1,000 oaks, magnolia, pine and other hardwood trees.
  • Approximately 125 acres of sod, enough to cover 96 football fields.
