Mr. Jack Bandy was a life-long resident of Dalton, Georgia, and was a tremendous golfer and philanthropist. Mr. Bandy had an outstanding amateur career as a golfer. But he was also one of the leaders in the development of the carpet industry in Dalton. Mr. Bandy was impressed by the vision for the Bobby Jones Golf Course renovation and named the B.J. and Jack Bandy Golf Instructional Center to honor his father, who taught him to play golf but passed away when Jack was only 22 years old. On December 2019, Mr. Bandy spoke eloquently at the dedication of the Center and hit the ceremonial tee shot. To say he hit it is an understatement. Using a borrowed driver, he smoked it on a straight-line with a perfect launch angle. Jack Bandy was an incredible gentleman who helped his community in so many ways. We are honored to have his name on our Instructional Center. Mr. Bandy passed away on March 29, 2020. He was 93 years old.
