Rory and Joey Sindelar on 18 at Fallen Oak DS

7 time winner on the PGA Tour Joey Sindelar and your’s truly on the 9th tee box during the Pro-Am for this weeks champions tour event.

The Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic week is underway, and it’s one of the great weeks here in Biloxi Mississippi.

The weeks second pro-am was held on Wednesday at the host site for this weeks tournament, Fallen Oak Golf Club, designed by Tom Fazio. The golf course has recently undergone a renovation to it’s bunkers and the reviews could not be more favorable. From both an amateur’s point of view and from Champions Tour players.

The 18th hole at Fallen Oak

You can bet that guests of the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino who can play the course, will love the new look as well.

The pro-am experience here at the tournament like it is at most professional events is a first-class one. Champions Tour players like Joey Sindelar help make it a great day for the amateur partners in his group.

Fallen Oak has an interesting history behind it. It was scheduled to open about one month before Hurricane Katrina hit the area, as a result of Katrina the golf course then opened about one year later. Some of the damage took out tree’s, but in the long terms that might have helped the golf course. A little more airflow and sunlight, improved the turf in places that were not coming in as quickly as the design team had wanted.

17 At Fallen Oak DS

The Par 3 17th, at Fallen Oak will test any golfer, even the Champions Tour players this week.

The golf course is located 30 minutes from the hotel, but worth the easy drive it takes to get out to the golf course. The par 72 golf course can play at 7,487 yards, and is built over 510 acres.

It has locker rooms for both men and women, the bar area that overlooks the 18th hole is known for one of the great Bloody Mary’s you will ever have.

This week when you sit back to watch coverage of the Champions Tour on TV, take a look a great golf course you can play, where the tour players play, Fallen Oak.
