Robert Tyre Jones Jr., better know as Bobby Jones, was one of the great golf legends of our time. Not only did he have a prolific golf career, but he also helped establish Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament. (An annual event that is now famous for its signature cheese sandwich.)

For any major golf fans, Bobby is a household name. You can find his final resting place inside Oakland Cemetery—just look for the headstone covered in golf balls. 

Know Before You Go

The grave is inside Oakland Cemetery. To find the grave, follow the signs that say "Golf Great Bobby Jones" and look for the grave covered in golf balls. It is right of the main entrance along Memorial Drive, close to the intersection with Wood Street.
