About this item
Golf first came to Georgia in the late eighteenth century when a group of avid golfers banded together to form a club in Savannah. By the end of the nineteenth century, when the game had become popular, the state developed courses from border to border. More than four hundred courses now dot the landscape of the Peach State. Georgia native and golfing icon Bobby Jones won four of golf's most coveted titles in 1930: the British Amateur, British Open, U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur. For one hundred years, the state has produced champion golfers at every level, hosted amateur and professional championships and provided support for the global sport. Author John Companiotte offers the compelling story of golf's rise and prosperity in Georgia.
