WEST POINT, Miss. (AP) - The city of West Point has approved a tax exemption for the new Mossy Oak Golf Club.

The course expects to open in 2017.

The George Bryan family, who founded the Old Waverly Golf Club, partnered with architect Gil Hanse and outdoor brand Mossy Oak to create the new 7,400 yard, par-72 golf course. It will have a clubhouse and guest cabins for players.

Mayor Robbie Robinson tells The Daily Times Leader (https://bit.ly/1ABi4PB ) the city would continue to receive a baseline sales tax from the golf club but the club would be allowed to keep 80 percent of any revenue above that baseline.

Economic development officials say the new golf course will be a generator of income and the exemption doesn’t cost the city anything out of pocket.
