Original Rare Bobby Jones Teeing Off on Augusta National Construction Grounds Photo & Negative - 8th Fairway


This is one of less than six (6) known photographs of Bobby Jones playing Augusta National during construction and prior to the grand opening. Opportunities like this do not present themselves very often so now is your chance. Presented here is a museum quality 5" x 4" photograph & original negative of Bobby Jones playing golf on what was originally the 8th hole during the construction phase of Augusta National Golf Club. Circa 1931-1932.

To our knowledge this photograph has never been seen by the public or reproduced in any manner (besides the original from Tommins Studio found in this lot). This is the first time this image has been viewed in public since it went into the Miller family closet nearly 90 years ago. The photograph and negative are sourced directly from the Wendell P. Miller who was Bobby Jones’ trusted Chief Engineer working alongside Alister Mackenzie for the development and creation of Augusta National Golf Club. The Miller family has decided to share this special relic with our bidding community. The Miller Family is giving all rights they have in and to this image to the winning bidder. A must have for the most ardent Jones and Augusta collector. Please note that it is difficult to verify exactly who the other gentlemen are in this photograph, but we believe they include Bobby's father Bob Jones, Sr. (Colonel), Clifford Roberts, and Alister MacKenzie, among others. 5" x 4" photo & negative.

The Golf Auction is proud to present an eclectic group of memorabilia representing all areas of the golf collecting world. Please utilize the categories column to help navigate you towards your preferred collectibles
