Starting yesterday and continuing through Sunday, thirty-two contestants have gathered at Fallen Oak in an effort to claim the inaugural MGM Resorts Cup for their team. It’s the top players (more gambling than golf) from the Beau Rivage versus an alike contingent representing the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
The Beau is going all in with the amenities. They even gave each contestant a pro-sized tour bag emblazoned with their name. The Beau’s team colors are blue and white while Aria’s are black and silver.
Basically, it is an effort to showcase Fallen Oak in hopes that they return and help spread the wealth to our area instead of treating Biloxi with flyover status in route to their desert oasis.
Yesterday it it was two nine hole matches switching partners for each. A two man best ball for came first with a shamble following. Today the first nine was a scramble and the second, after a partner switch once again, alternate shot. Tomorrow eighteen hole single matches will decide who owns the cup.
Would be great to see a first time winner in Prattville
