Old Waverly golf in Mississippi.

Bob Cupp, 1988

This modern Mississippi classic was only 11 years old when it burst onto the scene as the host site of the 1999 U.S. Women’s Open. Since then, Old Waverly has held a U.S. Women’s Amateur and six U.S. Senior Open qualifiers, solidifying its status as one of the South’s golfing jewels. The always well-conditioned layout winds around five different lakes, and architects Jerry Pate and Bob Cupp used all that water to create risk-reward opportunities throughout the course. Memorable holes abound, but the two finishers are the highlight. Seventeen is a stout par-3 that asks for a long carry over water, and the par-4 18th recalls the finisher at TPC Sawgrass’ Stadium Course, both in its hug-the-water design and its ability to produce high drama.
