Since its founding in 1988, Old Waverly has been highly regarded as one of the truly unique private clubs in all of the U.S. Developed on the site of the historic Waverly Mansion, the club is a result of the vision of the George and Marcia Bryan Family, who sought to create a world-class destination for golf and hospitality in the heart of the Mississippi Black Prairie.
U.S. Open winner Jerry Pate and course designer Bob Cupp were enlisted to craft the golf course from the undeveloped nature of 360 acres of pasture. The golf course opened in September 1988 to rave reviews, and has been a fixture among various “Best Of” lists, including recognition as the top residential golf course in Mississippi.
In addition to world-class golf, Old Waverly offers a host of luxurious lodging accommodations on site that provide members and their guests complete access to the club and it’s amenities. Nine four-bedroom cottages are available at the club for short term lodging. Villas, condos and single-family luxury homes are also available for rent and are located just steps away from the club’s amenities.
The club experience was elevated again in 2016 with the opening of Mossy Oak Golf Club, located just across the street from Old Waverly. Brought to life by Gil Hanse, architect of the 2016 Olympic Golf Course in Rio, Mossy Oak Golf has quickly become one of the most revered golf courses in all of the US and was recognized in 2018 as one of Golfweek’s Top-100 Modern Golf Courses in the US.
Offering two distinct, world-class golf courses, luxurious accommodations and unrivaled Southern Hospitality, Old Waverly has emerged as the premier golf destination in the South.
