Members and their guests

Peachtree is Atlanta's premier club (roughly the equivalent of Sunningdale to London); thus many among the membership also belong to Augusta National; and indeed Bobby Jones played a key role in establishing both clubs. Jones was raised in Atlanta's East Lake neighborhood, but the club he would have known there, the Atlanta Athletic Club, moved to a site further outside the city and went on to become the main draw for tournaments. Peachtree, however, has remained the area's exclusive establishment. The course was created by Robert Trent Jones in the 1940s; it is said that it was during this time that he added the "Trent" to his signature in order to distinguish himself from Bobby Jones during their collaboration here. The layout resembles the one at Augusta in its changes in elevation, use of native pines and dogwoods and limited bunkering. Peachtree hosted the Walker Cup in 1989.
