ABOUT HATTIESBURG COUNTRY CLUB
Hattiesburg Country Club was founded in 1919. After a fire destroyed the original building, it was rebuilt in 1959 in its present location. Over the years, Hattiesburg Country Club has evolved into a truly private membership country club with eight tennis courts, a swimming pool, outstanding restaurants, a fitness center, and an 18-hole championship golf course. In addition to our facilities, HCC offers a full calendar of social and family activities. This is all part of Hattiesburg Country Club’s evolution toward excellence. In the fall of 2017, the stockholders sold Hattiesburg Country Club to two members, Carter Callaway and Paul Maholm. Significant improvements have been made to the clubhouse facilities, and new equipment and increased in spending on the golf course has elevated the already immaculate condition of HCC.

Golf Course History
The golf course has matured and evolved into a unique test of shot-making skill, which was enhanced in 1999 after an imaginative redesign by Max Maxwell. Today, our 18-hole, par-72 golf course is recognized as one of the finest and most enjoyable in the state.
HCC has hosted numerous tournaments over the years, including the U.S.G.A. qualifiers, State Amateur Championships, and State Opens. From 1968 until 1993, HCC hosted the PGA TOUR’s Magnolia Classic, originally held in April during the same week as The Masters, and as a result, some of the biggest names in professional golf walked among the towering pines lining the course’s fairway. Players who were just starting out in their careers or had not qualified for The Masters played in the Magnolia Classic. Some of the world’s greatest players, such as Nick Faldo, have walked the hills of Hattiesburg Country Club at some point in their careers. Some of the more notable champions include Craig Stadler, Roger Maltbie, Russ Cochran, Jim Gallagher Jr., and the late Payne Stewart who won his first Tour event here in 1982.
