ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The Bobby Jones Golf Course will now become the property of the state.

In a vote of 12 to 3, the Atlanta City Council approved a land swap deal involving the city-owned Bobby Jones Golf Course in Buckhead and state-owned land adjacent to the Underground Atlanta shopping center.

Under the proposal, the state would receive the golf course, the Bitsy Grant Tennis Center and Atlanta Memorial Park, while the city would acquire property near Underground Atlanta, including a parking deck.
