The Bobby Jones Golf Club holds a special place in the hearts of golf enthusiasts and Sarasota residents alike. Steeped in rich history, the club has been a cornerstone of the community for decades. To commemorate its grand reopening, it is only fitting that The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce brings its Golf Classic to this legendary venue.

The Bobby Jones Golf Club was originally inaugurated with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting by none other than the golf legend himself, Bobby Jones, on February 17, 1927. Mr. Jones was joined by the manager of the Sarasota Chamber of Commerce, Jules Brazil, creating a timeless connection between this esteemed golf course and the local community.
