Delta State Still Looking for Answers to Former Golf Course

CLEVELAND, MS (Ben Caxton) — Delta State University is asking for ideas about what to do with the school’s defunct golf course. The university closed the Derrall Foreman Golf Course last year, saying it cost too much to operate in the face of state budget cuts. Around the same time, the Legislature passed a law letting Delta State lease the land for up to 50 years. College Board trustees must approve any lease but uses allowed under the law include a conference center, hotel, houses, apartments and a par-three golf course. University employees and students would get first rights to any houses or apartments. Delta State hopes to pick a developer sometime this summer.
