The golf programs at Mississippi State have a new home.

Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point will be the new home course for both the men’s and women’s golf teams. The $2.2 million project will include the construction of a driving range, short-game area, putting green, indoor hitting bays and a team clubhouse.

Over $1.3 million has been raised so far which has allowed the first phase of the project to commence. The team practice area (which features a putting green in the shape of the state of Mississippi) is expected to be completed this fall.

The 6,300-square foot clubhouse and other amenities will be completed whenever the remaining funds are received.

What they’re saying about the project…

“The proximity to Old Waverly, along with the long history between the Bryan family and Mississippi State, made this project possible. The new Bulldog golf facility will be one of the finest of its kind in the nation. The all-encompassing facility will dynamically enhance our golf programs and provide our student-athletes with all of the tools necessary to develop their skills on the course.” – MSU director of athletics Scott Stricklin

“With the support of the Bryan family and other key donors, we will soon have one of the top facilities anywhere.  This facility has been given a tremendous amount of thought and planning and is sure to give our student-athletes all they need to excel at the highest level.” – MSU men’s golf coach Clay Homan

 “This opportunity that Old Waverly Golf Club and our donor family is providing is program changing. Our program has grown tremendously, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds with a facility of this caliber. The future of Mississippi State golf is exploding with excitement and promise.” – MSU women’s golf coach Ginger Brown-Lemm

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
