If someone was planning on running the tournament I'm sure we'd be happy to atleast look into hosting it at Lake Lowndes in Columbus, MS. Lake Lowndes State Park is only a 2 hour drive or so from GP Cossar SP.
Our course is not quite as long as GP Cossar yet, but we are hoping for some remodeling in the near future that will push our course to a comparable length.
I'm sad to hear that the state doubles tournament has been cancelled. Is there any chance of it being rescheduled? If so, where? Anywhere would be fine with me, I just want to play golf!! Hopefully the tourney can be rescheduled.
I too, was sorry to hear that the state doubles tourney had been cancelled. There was such a great turnout last year at Cossar, it would be a shame to not relocate it. I was thinking since the course at Pascagoula is going to be torn out in the near future that maybe we could have it there. It's definately comparable with Cossar as far as length goes, and in mine and many others opinion it is a really nice course. It would be a true shame if the tourney we had there last year (which was a good turnout for the first ever) was to be the only one ever! And if relocating the doubles there is out of the question, then maybe we should think of having just a singles tournament there at the beginning of July before its too late and the course gets torn out. Please respond and let me know if anyone else thinks this is a good idea.
I saw Tony and Steve at the Pascagoula course on June 23. They told me about their suggestion of Pascagoula (I. G. Levy) as an option for the State Doubles since Cossar is floooded.
I called the City Managers office on the the 24th and received a return call today from the City Attorney. He said their is virtually no chance of the baskets being removed or the course otherwise altered before July 21. FEMA money has not yet been provided for the project and it won't start without it. It actually looks like our course will last a few more months!
The City attorney promised to let me know of any change as soon as he finds out. Any other interest in I. G. Levy as a state doubles location?
