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