Golf seldom comes to mind as an economic recovery tool, especially in the aftermath of a natural disaster. But in the two-plus years since Hurricane Katrina unleashed its fury on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, the game has been at the forefront of the region’s efforts to attract tourism again. Two new courses—including Tom Fazio’s spare-no-expense Fallen Oak, owned by the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi—have joined roughly twenty layouts that lie along a fifty-mile stretch of pinelands, lakes and marshes. And given the area’s flourishing gaming industry, it makes for a perfect buddy trip for guys who want to test their luck on the fairway by day and on the casino felt by night.
