Originally opened in October of 1998, The Refuge quickly gained acclaim as the “Best Purely Public Golf Course in Mississippi.” Known throughout the Magnolia State, The Refuge will provide the daily fee golfer with country club conditions. GolfLink.com has previously ranked The Refuge as “the #4 course in Mississippi.” The Roy Case-designed layout is unique in its setting from other courses in the region. Literally raised from a hardwood swamp, the course was routed through stands of towering pines and centuries-old oaks — preserving the pristine wetlands found throughout the property. The rolling fairways of emerald green wind their way through this “golf only” oasis isolated from any sprawling residential development.
The 18-hole Refuge Golf Course measures over 7000 yards from the longest tees but has six sets of tee boxes to accommodate golfers of any skill level. The course is open year round and patrons love the fact it also has a 15 acre aqua range lake. It is easily accessible since it is located only 5 minutes from the local airport.
The Refuge is currently in the final phase of a three-year renovation and development project and is expected to reopen for play this fall.
