Altanta is a historic place in the life of black golfers throughout our country. Alferd Tup Holmes an avid and highly skilled golfer, took his battle to play golf on city courses all the way to the US Supreme Court. His attorney Thurgood Marshall won the rights for black people to play. On December 24, 1955, Alfred “Tup” Holmes, along with his brother Oliver and 5 other African American men, played the first desegregated round in Atlanta on the North Fulton Golf Course. The men walked the course and played as a threesome and a twosome and Holmes carded a very respectable 79 on that historic Christmas Eve morning.
