Jones ’ Golf Course Will Be Masterpiece: Relays Presage Thrills in C. U. Games
LINKS AT AUGUSTA CONSIDERED IDEAL Bobby Aids in Supervising Building of Layout With Novel Features. BY W. R. McCALLUM. BOBBY JONES is in earnest about his project of build ing at Augusta, Ga., a won der inland golf course. The former world champion and one-time “emperor” of golf believes he has the making on a piece of land known as “Fruit lands," just northwest of Augusta, of a golf layout that will take its place as one of the finest courses in America. And Bobby is sparing no time or ef fort to give to the golfing world the benefit of his many years of experience and the priceless observations he has made in the nearly two decades he romped over the links seeking cham pionships. Once every three weeks or so Bobby goes from Atlanta to Augusta, a Jaunt of some 200-odd miles, to view the work which is being done on the Augusta National Golf Course, which is coming to be more famUiarly known as the Bobby Jones Golf Course. Bobby is president of the club and although the course itself is being con structed by Dr. Alister MacKenzie. one of the designers of the present Chevy Chase Club course, Bobby looks It over periodically to see that things go as he wants them to go. The old time ama teur and open king takes this business of building a golf course seriously. He has incorporated in the layout many of the features of the famous holes he has played, and in building the duplicates of the famous old w’orld holes he has seen, he wants them to be as letter perfect as terrain and contour will permit. WE visited the new course a few days ago. during a short stay in the South, and saw what Bobby Is trying to do down there in Augusta, where a good many Washington golfers go each Winter to play the three courses which are in use at present. Out there on a pleasant hillside, over rolling country of terrain similar to that of the Columbia Country Club course, Jones and MacKenzie have laid cut a gclf course which will range from 6.300 yards to 6,700 yards, with a par of 72. The course at present is incom plete, but the work of master architects i can plainly be geen in the contours of j the greens and the placing of traps, and j the manner In which fairways are ar- j ranged to penalize a tee shot not placed I In the correct groove. The course also will have a real nine teenth hole, not the conventional one qf beloved memory, but a real golf hole of about 100 yards, stretching right In front of the club house, where consola tion bets may be placed and played off. Believing that the acid, test of a golf course is its abiding popularity and not Intending to build for the expert alone, Jones and MacKenzie have striven to make the course a tough one for the expert and duffer alike. It Is planned to open the layout about December 1 that it may be ready for play next Winter. BOBBY had been in Augusta for several days prior to our visit, but there were lots of good Augusta folk there to explain what is happen ing at Fruit lands. The place Itself is impressive. You go In from the main road between rows of magnolia trees, hanging almost to the grourvd and ready at this season of the year to shoot forth their wax-like blooms. At the end of the avenue of mag nolias, said to have been planted in 1858, is the old “Fruitland” house, the plantation mansion built by Dennis Redmond in 1854. Just what will be done with it has not yet been decided, but It probably will be retained as a link with the past when a more im pressive club house Is built. At present j the major part of the construction work j Is centered on the golf course. Out on the hillside, looking toward the Forest Hills course, is all the para phernalia with which a golf course is built, and stretching away Into the dis tance are the fairways and putting greens being molded under the hands of the master. Bobby goes in far dog leg holes, for no fewer than 11 of the holes on this new golf course are dog leg affairs, some of them sharp benders to right or left and some with a gentle curve In the fairwav. Bobby always has believed in the old Vardon axiom of playing the tee shot to open up the hole for the second shot, and also in the general1 theory that a bad tee shot should be penalized, and he has laid the fairways out, so that a tee shot not in the proper spot will leave a very hard second. A creek winds through the property and heavy pine woods make for plenty of diversion for those who stray from the line. It is planned to make most of the greens gently rolling, while a few, mostly at the one-shot holes, will ! be decidedly rolling. HERE is the unusual thing about the course. Jones and MacKenzie be lieve that sand traps alone do not make a fine golf course. They hold that natural hazards not only have more charm, from an architectural standpoint, but impose more real diffi culty than sand traps, and the result has been that there are but 30 sand traps on the whole layout, an average of less than two to the hole. Consider that a course like Indian Spring has more than 90 and most! of the other courses around Washing- j ton have 50 or more, and you will see ' •what Jones is driving at in the con struction of the Augusta National lay out. Several of the greens are con- j structed of unusual design without a j single guarding trap, but they are ; built so that a shot which misses the green will leave plenty of trouble with- ! out sand to add to the golfer’s woes. In its at present incomplete state, the j course looks great. A walk over a few I of the fairways will convince any one ! of that. And one is impressed by he ! fact that Bobby, just as he did in tournament golf, is throwing his whole i soul into the job of buUding at Augusta 1 a course that will be a monument to MacKenzie and himself. — ■■ ■ "■ m HYATTSVILLE HIGH PLAYS Battllea St. John’s Tomorrow in Basket Bail Game.

BROWN ADDS WEINER TO BOXING VICTIMS _ i Baltimore Heavy, With 22-Pound Advantage, Is Stopped in Seventh Session. Natie Brown stood forth an almost undisputed ruler of heavyweight ring men of this sector today following a knockout victory over Herman Weiner of Baltimore In the featured bout of the Alexandria day nursery card last night. Referee Charley Short stopped the fight in the seventh round to save Weiner unnecessary punishment. He had taken a terrlfflc lacing despite his margin of 22 pounds in the weights Brown scaling 182. In the first round Weiner went down under a blow to the body. Staggering to his feet at the count of nine, he again crumpled, only lightly hit. The bell saved him. Weiner got in some telling licks in the fourth and fifth rounds but generally he took a painful pasting. He was floored for a short count in the sixth A big lump over the Baltimorean’s eye influenced Short to halt the business in the seventh. In the semi-windup.
