About Us

Learn About the Bobby Jones Golf Course Foundation.

We are a group of private citizens that have formed a nonprofit organization in Atlanta, Georgia, with the goal of renovating an old Atlanta golf course, and then operating the facility and golf links as a public course. 

Here are some additional brief history items about our journey:

2011 - The Atlanta Memorial Park Conservancy (AMPC) was formed to create a master plan for the park, including golf, tennis, PATH walking trail, and green space. Bob Cupp agreed to provide course design services pro bono.

2013 - AMPC developed a master plan, including a reversible 9-hole design with a driving range, practice facilities, renovations to the Bitsy Grant Tennis Center, and new parking deck.

2014 - GSGA and the Georgia Section of the PGA proposed the concept of the Georgia Golf House and Georgia Golf Hall of Fame. Georgia State University proposed making BJGC home of GSU's women's and men's golf teams.

2016 - The State and city finalized a land swap to acquire the course and the renovation plan was approved. The Bobby Jones Golf Course Foundation was then formed to oversee renovation and operation of the course and construction of the Georgia Golf House and the first ever home for the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame.
