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.

The Bobby Jones Golf Course Foundation, Inc. was formed several years ago by a passionate group of citizens who share a passion for Bob Jones’ legacy and this historic golf course. The Foundation’s mission aims to transform the course into a facility worthy of his name, one that will become the home of golf in Georgia and include a revolutionary reversible golf course designed by 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.

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.

Presently, the new course is under construction and will open for play again in the fall of this year. Our goal is to completely redevelop the course 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.
