The New Bobby Jones Golf Course
A REVOLUTIONARY NEW DESIGN AND THE RENEWAL OF A HISTORIC GOLF COURSE
In 1932, the Bobby Jones Golf Course opened as the first public golf course in Atlanta and a tribute to one of the greatest golfers of all time: Bob Jones. Over the years, the course became rather obsolete and no longer properly honored the most iconic name in golf.
A passionate group of citizens who share a passion for Bobby Jones’ legacy and this historic golf course formed The Bobby Jones Golf Course Foundation, Inc. The Foundation aimed to transform the course into a facility worthy of his name, one that includes a revolutionary reversible golf course designed by the late Bob Cupp, state-of-the-art practice facilities, the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame, and programming designed to grow the game of golf with a specific focus on juniors and adaptive golf. Bobby Jones Golf Course’s Murray Golf House will also become the center of golf in Georgia serving as the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame and home to the Georgia State Golf Association and Georgia Section of the PGA of America.
In pursuing our mission, the Foundation has raised over $23 million from generous individuals and Georgia-based institutional funders and now leases the property from the State of Georgia. The opportunity presented by this project is to not only provide an extraordinary golf opportunity, but to make a difference for the community and transform lives in a myriad of ways by being good stewards of the environment and growing the game of golf.
The new course will feature a completely redeveloped design and surrounding property – imagine a blank, 130-acre canvas with a revolutionary nine-hole reversible course, brand new buildings and facilities (including a parking deck), redeveloped Bitsy Grant tennis courts, and a paved PATH Foundation walking trail nestled around its perimeter.
