ATLANTA, GEORGIA – On November 1, 2017 the Bobby Jones Golf Course Foundation has appointed Mosaic Clubs & Resorts to serve as lead project manager of the redevelopment of historic Bobby Jones Golf Course. Built in 1932 as a tribute to Atlanta’s most famous athlete, Bobby Jones, the course closed on October 31 to undergo a total renovation and redevelopment, opening in the fall of 2018 as an entirely new golf experience and expanded facility.
The non-profit Foundation will invest approximately $23 million in the re-development of the new golf course and clubhouse facilities. The first phase of the project includes a unique reversible 9-hole (one of only two in the United States), championship course designed by the late world-renowned Atlanta architect Bob Cupp, state of the art driving range, indoor instruction building, and short game practice area as well as a new maintenance facility.
The Foundation is partnering with the Georgia State Golf Association and the Georgia Section of the PGA of America in the second phase of the project to create the Georgia Golf House, a new facility that will become the center of golf in Georgia. Those organizations, as well the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame, the Atlanta Junior Golf Association, and others will call the Georgia Golf House home and use it for their headquarters.
Mosaic will lead a team of seasoned industry professionals including Wadsworth Golf Construction (golf course), “Bobby” Cupp (course design and master plan), SG Contracting (vertical construction), and Jim Chapman (clubhouse design).
“The new Bobby Jones Golf Course will be spectacular. It has been many years since a brand-new golf course came out of the ground in Atlanta,” said Whitney Crouse, Mosaic’s Chairman. “This one will not only be remarkable when it opens next year, it will be the result of the support and donations from many wonderful people and companies. It is truly a community effort to make this an enduring tribute to Mr. Jones and a golf experience everyone in Atlanta will enjoy.”
