Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and Bobby Jones Foundation agree on plan to protect 25-foot stream buffer

The Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and the Bobby Jones Golf Course Foundation have negotiated an agreement that would have less environmental impact on the 25-foot buffers along Tanyard and Peachtree creeks.

Earlier this year, the Foundation had applied to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division to encroach within the state-mandated 25-foot stream buffer. But the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper strongly objected to those plans.

The tree massacre at the Bobby Jones Golf Course a blow to Atlanta

Back during the Civil War, the land that is now known as the Bobby Jones Golf Course was a battlefield that witnessed one of the bloodiest battles of the Atlanta Campaign.

Today, the Bobby Jones Golf Course has become a battlefield once again. But this time, the casualties were more than 800 trees that were cut down to make way for a redeveloped Bobby Jones Golf Course.
