Covid-19 Update from Bobby Jones Links

Charlie Yates Golf Course Included In 5-Course Public Golf Road Trip

A 5-Course Golf Road Trip Around Atlanta | by Chris Millard

Finally, the Charlie Yates Golf Course at East Lake, which gave Jones his start, has built a towering reputation by using golf as a tool for community development. While East Lake Golf Club itself is private, its neighbor across the street is as public as it gets. Named for the famed Atlanta amateur and dear friend of Jones, this old Donald Ross course was updated in 1998 by Rees Jones. The now 9-holer is centered on a large lake, and holes 4 through 7 are a joy. In May 2021, the course announced that the greens will be converted from bentgrass to prizm zoysia. Those and other planned improvements will keep Charlie top of mind among Atlanta’s public-course cognoscenti. On your way back toward town or the airport, stop at historic Oakland Cemetery. Lay a golf ball at the burial site of Bobby Jones and toast his devotion to public golf at the aptly named bar across the street: Six Feet Under.
