About Old Waverly Golf Course
Old Waverly, founded in 1988 and sitting on 360 acres and in the heart of the Mississippi Black Prairie, was created as a result of the vision of the George and Marcia Bryant family, who sought to create a world-class destination for hospitality and golf. The club is on many “Best Of” lists. Old Waverly was designed by U.S. Open winner Jerry Pate and designer Bob Cupp.
