Roosevelt Golf Course
Nestled at the north end of the Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation campus off Highway 27A, the Roosevelt Memorial Golf Course is a nine-hole, public course founded in 1926. Designed by world famous golf course creator Donald Ross, encompassing 3,100 yards as a par 35 (70 for 18 holes), it has hosted the likes of inaugural starter Bobby Jones, Sam Snead and polio vaccine developer Jonas Salk. According to legend, Donald Ross sketched out the original 18-hole design for FDR on a napkin at the Meriwether Inn but the back-nine holes were never completed. Annual memberships, including Individual, Family, and Senior (60 and over) are available to the community. For more information or to schedule a round, call 706-655-5230.
