East Lake: Where Bobby Learned to Play

The DeKalb History Center’s July Lunch & Learn will be presented by Linton C. Hopkins.
Exploring the history of East Lake Golf Club along with the story of Bobby Jones, Alexa Stirling, and other amateur golfers, East Lake – Where Bobby Learned to Play is unlike most books about golf. Told from a dynamic perspective, this book recounts stories from the time Bobby Jones was learning how to play golf and the journey that turned him into one of the greatest amateur golfers of all time.
Linton C. Hopkins is a retired neurologist from Emory University, a long-time member of East Lake Golf Club, and a native of Atlanta. Taking inspiration from his patients, Hopkins became enthralled with the history of Bobby Jones, East Lake, and the countless stories that were widely untold until now.

Free! Bring your lunch.
