SOUTHAVEN, Mississippi (May 18, 2021) – Boxer Resorts, the new ownership of North Creek Golf Club in Southaven, Miss., recently announced a facility enhancement plan aimed at elevating the golf, social and event experiences at the popular club in the greater Memphis area.
Texas-based Boxer Resorts purchased North Creek Golf Club in July of 2020 and immediately set forth a plan to enhance the property.
Property improvements already executed or underway include, but are not limited to:
- Bunker renovation to include fresh/new bunker sand, lining and drainage in all 40 of the bunkers
- Irrigation system improvements involving the controls and pump station enhancements which will support enhanced golf course conditions
- Completed clubhouse enhancements including paint, renovation of ballroom/event center, HVAC improvements and new televisions in bar/grille
- New golf cart fleet – coming in June 2021
In addition to the improvements to the golf course and clubhouse, the club is launching a new website and has launched new annual pass programs and a new frequent player program called the “Creek Card”.
“We purchased North Creek this past summer and immediately put a plan in place to improve the golf and social experiences at the club and for the community,” stated Michael Owen, a senior project manager with Boxer Resorts. “Golf is seeing an increase in rounds played, and we are excited to refine the North Creek experience and relaunch the club – making the club a must-play in the region and a gathering place for the community.”
It is well chronicled that golf saw a dramatic increase in demand in 2020. Despite pandemic-related course closures and play reduction at the onset of the pandemic, golf demand increased dramatically in the summer and fall. So much so, that the National Golf Foundation reported that rounds played nationally increased by 13% in 2020 over 2019 levels.
Located in Southaven, Mississippi, just nine miles from Memphis International Airport and 13 miles from the exciting entertainment corridor of Beale Street and Downtown Memphis, North Creek Golf Club is a place for fun, friends, family and great golf. The 18-hole, par 72 championship layout is highlighted by a strategic “dunes” inspired designed that pays homage to the links style of golf courses, yet is infused with dashes of shimmering water features, wooded enclaves, steeply inclined bunkers, and fairways flanked by Hershey Kiss-style mounding.
Open since 1998, the Tracy May-designed course has been recognized as one that challenges the most accomplished players with undulation, movement, and quick Champion Bermuda greens. At the same time, the course is welcoming to golfers of all abilities with flexible yardages ranging from 4,559 yards from the forward/red tees to 6,433 yards from the back/gold tees.
North Creek Golf Club also has a warm and inviting clubhouse with casual elegance. Boasting flexible event space that takes in the majestic views of the surrounding golf course, North Creek is the perfect locale for an intimate gathering to a large celebration.
