ATLANTA PGA STOP TO MOVE TO NEW TPC COURSE AT SUGARLOAF
Published June 21, 1995
The Atlanta Classic Foundation voted 40-4 last night to agree in principle to move its $1.3M PGA Tour event from Marietta's Atlanta Country Club to the under-construction Sugarloaf Country Club. The meeting included a presentation by a PGA Tour contingent headed by Commissioner Tim Finchem. Although the move was approved, it is pending finalization of some details over the next few weeks. The PGA Tour's Tournament Policy Board recently gave "tentative approval" for the course to become a Tournament Players Club, likely TPC at Sugarloaf. The goal to play there in '97 is "not definite" (Glenn Sheeley, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 6/21).
