Old Waverly Golf Club
Golf Course History - Colonel George Hampton Young moved from Georgia and built a spectacular antebellum mansion for his bride on the banks of the Tombigbee River. Tragically, before the magnificent home was finished, Colonel Hamptons wife died. But as a man of vision, the Colonel pushed forward and when the homestead was mostly complete in 1852 named it Waverley, the main character and title of the first novel of Scottish writer Sir Walter Scott. Waverley lost great friends and love but persevered to start life anew. Waverley succeeded and so, too, would Colonel Young. One hundred thirty years later, another George living in the Golden Triangle region of west Mississippi, seized upon a mission not unlike the young colonels and sought to make something extraordinary for those he knew and loved.
