#TheMotherClucker — HCC takes on Old Waverly and Mossy Oak

The @HighCottonClub took our talents to MS for our inaugural Member - Guest, #TheMotherClucker

The weekend started with 9 holes at the MSU Golf Course where @Webber took the sole skin, but @hworth14 won the day to start his weekend off hot.

The gang checked into the cottages across the lake from 11, 17, and 18 at Old Waverly before attending the Vandy @ State baseball game in the Carnegie Hall of College Baseball. Enough can not be said about the setup @Webber put together for the boys in Left Field Lounge. Vibes were high after the game and while some folks went to dinner, another group went to a hidden cigar lounge in the back of a packing store on West Point — s/o Brandon Walker… The competition hadn’t started yet, but the energy was tangible.

After a night filled with tornado sirens and severe weather around us, the morning brought sunshine and a new day. Saturday morning and everyone reconvened in the Old Waverly clubhouse for a wildly overpriced and mediocre breakfast buffet before loading up the carts and heading out for a team total stableford competition, with the team totals seeding Sunday’s matches. After an enormous amount of rain on Friday night, LCP was in play everywhere and the TC Rule (do the right thing, don’t be a scumbag) was in full effect for the bunkers. A hot start by the lowest cappers stalled in the middle of the round while teams with strokes played some of their best gross golf. The leaderboard flipped in favor of Team @lostinspace ans Team @hworth14 who secured their spot in Sunday’s championship match with totals of 101 for team @lostinspace and 80 for team @hworth14

Since CPO dragged Saturday morning’s round, the group abandoned the plan to head to Saturday’s baseball game and head for an E9 at Mossy Oak, where the oooo’s and aaahhh’s started to flow freely. After a less than ideal morning round, @Webber beat the problems out on the range before teeing off and shot -3 to run away with the jackpot before folks dispersed for dinner and reconvened for a special recording of Dialed In (to be released in the coming days)

Sunday morning brought an early wake up call after a long day, but the course had dried enough for the grounds crew to make some major improvements from the previous afternoon. Team @lostinspace ran away with the Championship match despite @hworth14 shooting a net/gross even par as a scratch handicap on the back of @lostinspace net -4. Two other gross even rounds were out there, featuring a net -6.

The weekend concluded with camaraderie and drinks on the upper patio overlooking Mossy Oak, and the planning for our return began. #TheMotherClucker will return to the @highcottonclub schedule in an expanded field next year, but a group has already started forming for a return trip in September.

All in all, it was a hell of a weekend and I’m sad it’s over. I can’t thank everyone enough for getting involved and bringing their guests, it was truly a pleasure to meet and hang with everyone.


The word that keeps coming to my mind is the verb, crescendo!!

Lodging and tee times have been booked for the trip in the fall! Two cottages at Mossy Oak on Thursday/Friday 9/7-8 with tee times at Mossy Oak Friday morning and afternoon and tee times at Old Waverly starting at 8:10 on Saturday (fingers crossed for an evening kick for Arizona @ State)

Reach out if you want to #getinvolved


Sounds like a blast. Currently trying to get my 16 man ryder cup group to look at these courses for 2024 fall. Any suggestions on how to convince them or what we should do?

Stay at Mossy if you can. We stayed at Old Waverly last time and it was great, but Mossy has a putting green by the cottages and an incredible vibe. The ability to grab beer and go up to the back patio to watch groups come in is unbeatable.

Old Waverly was serving Philly cheesesteaks and burgers at the turn, which was wild, but the food is probably a better value over at Mossy.

It’s just an insane value for two great golf courses, and they are generally very accommodating of groups like this.

Local tips… Add something at the MSU Golf Course to start the weekend, get dinner at Anthony’s in West Point one night and go to the Smokestack in West Point, MS, buy some cigars and drinks, and ask for Brandon Walker’s Smoking Lounge.


If it had been a better weekend they’d have had to throw us in jail! Can’t wait to get the boys back to the 'Sip. @leftysauce is a humble man but he was one of the E gross scores on Sunday at Mossy. Hopefully will be seeing yall in June…


One of the best weekends I’ve ever had between New Years and Memorial Day. Can’t wait to get back. @Webber is a hell of a host and the epitome of a southern gentleman.
