Take advantage of fall stay-and-play packages in Mississippi

There are few things as beautiful as a wide open course on an early fall morning. As autumn approaches, you’re probably thinking about the best places to go relax, spend a few days away from the pressures of work, and just enjoy a few rounds on the best fairways you can find.

Mississippi has world-renowned courses with stay-and-play packages for the upcoming season. The temperate conditions make golf perfect when it would be too cold to play in a lot of places around the country. If you’re looking for a great course, consider The Bridges Golf Club, Mississippi’s only Arnold Palmer Signature Course.

Set among 600 acres of moss-draped live oaks, pines, magnolias and scenic views of saltwater marsh, the course features tee boxes to accommodate golfers of all skill levels and 21 bridges that span nearly one mile in length.

Located on 600 waterfront acres, Hollywood Casino in Bay St. Louis offers 1,200 of the latest reel, video slot and video poker machines as well as a poker room, free wireless Internet in the guest rooms and a pool and cabana bar.

Circling Raven Golf Club to throw free BBQ on Father’s Day

The Circling Raven Golf Club in Worley, Idaho is looking to treat dads right for Father’s Day this year. The Club is offering a complimentary smoked barbeque meal to all “Dad Golfers” with the purchase of a greens fee.

The BBQ, which runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., will include bratwurst, smoked chicken breast, smoked beef brisket sandwich, and pulled BBQ pork sandwich. All items will be served with chips, side salad (potato, pasta, macaroni or coleslaw), a soft drink and a giant cookie.

Circling Raven was created amid a unique blend of wetlands, grasslands and woodlands. At 7,189 yards, the par 72 championship layout meanders through 620 acres, only 100 representing cultivated ground. Wildlife is abundant, including elk, deer, moose and an occasional black bear. In fact, the opening was delayed due to damage on two greens by migrating elk.
