John A. White Park Golf Course is a 9-hole jewel in Southwest Atlanta. The course was originally built in 1929 as a public nine-hole course and was redesigned in 1999 by the late Bob Cupp, former senior course designer for Jack Nicklaus. The Crenshaw bent greens add challenge to the old charm of a great walking course that is sprawled out over 40 acres. With two Par 5’s, four Par 4’s, and three Par 3’s, this player friendly course is the proud home of and operated by The First Tee of Atlanta. The First Tee is an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. The First Tee of Atlanta’s mission is to positively impact the lives of Atlanta area youth by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. Marvin Hightower (BBA ’79) is the executive director of First Tee Atlanta.
