The DeKalb History Center’s July 16 Lunch & Learn will be presented by Linton C. Hopkins from noon to 1 p.m., at the Historic DeKalb Courthouse, 101 E. Court Square, Decatur.

Linton will share the history of East Lake Golf Club along with the story of Bobby Jones, Alexa Stirling, and other amateur golfers with a discussion about “East Lake – Where Bobby Learned to Play.”  Told from a dynamic perspective, the book recounts stories from the time Bobby Jones was learning how to play golf and the journey that turned him into one of the greatest amateur golfers of all time.

Hopkins is a retired neurologist from Emory University, a long-time member of East Lake Golf Club, and a native of Atlanta. Taking inspiration from his patients, Hopkins became enthralled with the history of Bobby Jones, East Lake, and the countless stories that were widely untold until now.

Attendees are invited to bring their lunch. The event is free.
