Delta State golf course to be redesigned for Grammy Museum
While all the talk has been about what the Grammy Museum Mississippi will add to the City of Cleveland and Delta State University, the 20,000-plus-square-foot facility is going to cost a little real estate.
To be more specific, the university’s golf course is going to have to sacrifice a couple of holes. However, plans are for the holes to be replaced and the course to be reconfigured.
The four-acre site for the Grammy Museum Mississippi is on Mississippi 8 on the south end of Delta State University’s Derrall Foreman Golf Course. The museum will encompass current holes four and five of the nine-hole course.
Rob Turner with Delta State’s facilities management and Ross Barkley of the architecture/engineering firm Eley|Barkley, P.A., said the holes would be replaced and the course, which serves both DSU athletics, students/faculty/staff, members as well as the general public, would remain a nine-hole course.
Derrall Foreman Golf Course’s par-36 nine holes play 3,086 yards from the championship tee and 2,572 from the middle tee. The par-72 18-hole course, which offers Bermuda fairways and greens, plays 6,327 and 5,136, respectively, from the championship and middle tees. It offers golf cart/club rental and pro shop.
The 18-hole fee for the general public is $25 per player, $20 per player for nine holes. Those fees include cart rental. (The fee for walkers is $15.)
The course opened in 1932.
