Years ago, Highlands summer resident, Walter Wattles, and former Walker Cupper, Charlie Yates, approached the Jones family about starting an invitational tourney, and they graciously agreed to allow the use of Bob Jones’s name for this very special event. (The Masters is the only other tournament granted permission to use his name.) As a gentleman dedicated to his family first, but also to sportsmanship, humanity, and love of the game of golf, Jones would be pleased to know that his life is being honored each year by other amateur golfers.

We are very fortunate to have had Bob Jones in our Highlands history. He loved the Highlands area and spent 40 years coming to enjoy the mountains and the cool weather during the summer months. In 1928, he was involved in the development of the golf course, designed by Donald Ross, known today as Highlands Country Club and even hit the first ball to christen the course.

After his retirement from amateur golf, Jones only played in exhibition matches to raise money for worthy causes. He once teamed with baseball great, Ty Cobb, in a match in Highlands to raise money for the fledgling hospital. Today, the Bob Jones Invitational Tournament carries on that legacy by supporting local charities, raising over $2.5 million to date for the Highlands Cashiers Hospital through sponsorships and donations of local participants.
