A REVOLUTIONARY AND SPECTACULAR NEW GOLF COURSE
The new Bobby Jones features a unique, revolutionary reversible golf course, with multiple tees and large double greens that allow for two pin placements on each green. You can play it twice – for 18 holes – and experience a different course the second time around. But, it gets better; Bobby Jones is reversible and can be played one direction one day and the exact opposite direction the next – two completely different golf experiences known as our Magnolia and Azalea courses. This very unusual design was envisioned by the late and world-renowned Bob Cupp, and will be the only golf course of its kind it in the United States. That’s revolutionary!
The course utilizes the Longleaf Tee System, a new and pioneering approach with seven sets of tees that are gender neutral making the game more enjoyable for all golfers and allowing you to design the course you play, as you play, from as long as 7,349 yards to just 3,164 yards, and everywhere in between.
There’s more. Bobby Jones Golf Course does not tee markers. Unless you are playing in a tournament, once you pick the tee you want to play based on how hard or easy you want a hole to be, you can tee off from anywhere on that tee.
The new Bobby Jones embraces many new technologies available for golf: Wi-Fi on the entire property, state-of-the-art GPS enabled golf carts with Bluetooth sound system and video streaming, a sophisticated mobile application, remote check-in, on-course ordering and delivery, digital scorecards, and high-tech teaching technologies.
The new facility also includes a 6 hole “wee links” of 50-70 yards, dubbed the Cupp Links, designed specifically for junior golfers ages 12 and under and for adaptive golfers.
The golf course offers superb playing conditions. TifEagle, the best bermudagrass available for greens, is used on the putting surfaces, which are large and accept shots from both directions. TifTuf, one of the best new grasses that requires 40% less water, is used everywhere else.
