OLD WAVERLY RESORT
West Point, Miss.

With the addition of Gil Hanse's Mossy Oak Golf Club, which opened in 2016, the tiny town of West Point, Miss.—two-and-a-half hours from Memphis, and four hours from Atlanta—has become a desirable hub for golfers in the south. Old Waverly, the Bob Cupp and Jerry Pate course, was the site of the 1999 U.S. Women's Open, 2006 U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur and the 2019 U.S. Women's Amateur.

There are dramatic designs at this suburban Birmingham resort, from the Tudor-style hotel of brick and stone to the massively sculptured Ross Bridge course, perhaps the toughest on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

SEA ISLAND (GA.) RESORT

A $25 million enhancement project recently completed includes new oceanfront cottages, including a pool overlooking the ocean, an 18-hole putting course and a 17,000-square-foot practice facility. Other highlights still include The Cloister, seemingly transported from Italy's Mediterranean coast, or The Lodge at Sea Island, with its 24-hour butler service. Both offer rounds at the Seaside, Plantation and Retreat courses.
