  1. Gary Miller

    My father, William Akins Miller, worked for the WPA in 1940 in Macon, Ga as a civil engineer and, as such, likely worked on the construction of this golf course. He was a 1937 graduate of Georgia Tech. Upon the US entry into WWII he entered the Navy serving in the Civil Engineer Corps and retiring after 29 years as a Captain.
