There are sky rise buildings along the skyline and roads leading into the city in the foreground. A photo credit is printed in white text along the top edge of the panel. The bottom fourth of the front panel is black with white text that reads [Bobby Jones / Golf Course / Atlanta, Georgia / Jim Davey/PGA Golf Professional • Jack C. Delius/General Manager].
