Text of marker: "Bobby Jones and the Beginning of the Grand Slam. On the golf links of the Forrest Hills-Ricker Hotel, Bobby Jones won the Southeastern Open of 1930. He went on to victory that year in the British Amateur, British Open, U.S. Open, and U.S. Amateur - golf's Grand Slam and a feat yet to be repeated. A lifelong amateur, Jones won four U.S. Opens, five U.S. Amateurs, three British Opens, and one British Amateur, but called his thirteen-shot victory in the 1930 Southeastern Open, "the best-played tournament I ever turned out in my life." Thirteen of the original Donald Ross-designed holes and the 1926 Golf House survive from Jones' era. 1999.1 Erected by the Georgia Historical Society, Grand Slam Clubhouse Committee, Historic Augusta, Inc., Richmond Co. Historical Society and Augusta-Richmond Co. Historic Preservation Commission 121-1"
