GULFPORT, Miss. (April 20, 2007) - The Windance Country Club - an eerily appropriate
name in the wake of Hurricane Katrina - cuts through thick, forested wetlands a few
miles from the Gulf of Mexico.

Cart paths and wood bridges take you through the woods and wetlands that border the
golf course, and you can see firsthand the kind of destruction the September storm
wrought as it rolled over coastal Mississippi in 2005.

Stumps, broken and splintered trees, whole swatches of forest gone. The course
itself lost 1,000 trees, which, when compared to some other Biloxi-area golf
courses, wasn\'t all that bad.

Luckily, the debris from the course was cleaned up quickly, and the course has been
back in business after closing for only a month after the storm.

\"September\'s not a real good month here anyway,\" Windance Head Professional David
Lee said.

The hardest hit portion of the course was its clubhouse, which suffered wind and
roof damage. That has all been repaired.

The club is in a \"covenant-controlled community\" with a private lake, and it winds
through the neighborhood, but with a good stretch of holes without any homes along
the fairways.

Opened in 1986, the semi-private course is a Mark McCumber design that has some
length and enough bite to it to keep it interesting. Windance is 6,660 yards from
the back tees, with a slope rating of 129
