Redesigned Bobby Jones Golf Course Opens in Atlanta

It’s time to tee it up again at the famed Bobby Jones Golf Course in Atlanta.

On Monday, the redesigned course opened to the public following a two-year effort by the Bobby Jones Golf Course Foundation.

The foundation, which was created in 2016, raised more than $23 million to completely renovate the course, which opened in 1932 in honor of Jones. The foundation leases the Northside Drive property from the state.

“This course has gone through a complete transformation,” said Chuck Palmer, chairman of the Bobby Jones Golf Course Foundation during a preview event on Saturday. “Any of you who have played out here the decades previously will not recognize what you see today.”

The orginal course was the first public course in Atlanta.

The new 130-acre course has a unique design. It features multiple tees on each hole that are not based on gender and the holes boast double greens.
