ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — According to the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) Division of Tourism, seven golf courses in the state have been voted onto Golfweek’s “50 Best Casino Courses” list.

This is the fifth year Golfweek has conducted its casino course rankings. To produce the list, the magazine sends out a nationwide team of more than 600 course raters to survey more than 2,200 courses on the basis of 10 criteria, including routing, conditioning, variety and memorability of holes.
Mississippi and Nevada had the second-most courses on the list with seven, following Arizona, which led the way with eight. Overall, 17 different states are represented on the list.
