Mississippi Has Magnolia Golf Trail


'The Magnolia Golf Trail,' a collection of 14 golf courses designed by many of the game's top architects, has been established by the Mississippi Development Authority Division of Tourism.
Magnolia Golf Trail member courses include Canebrake (a Jerry Pate design) and Timberton (Mark McCumber) in Hattiesburg, and The Bridges (Arnold Palmer) and The Oaks (Landmark Golf) on the Gulf Coast. Plans are to expand the trail roster this year.
Each Magnolia Golf Trail course has to meet criteria to assure quality, high standards of course layout, and amenities. The Magnolia Golf Trail was nominated as the only U.S. representative in the category of 'Best Emerging Golf Destination' by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators and the Golf Travel Writers Association in 2002.
The Trail courses stretch from Robinsonville in the Tunica gaming hub just outside Memphis, to Bay St. Louis along the Gulf of Mexico.
