    At least during the tournament, they had metal detectors and big no weapons signs up...IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD NO LESS. No, I didn't go, but I had to slow to a crawl around one of their search points at one of the back gates. If you're going to ban guns, fine, you're private, whatever (though I disagree with that interpretation of the 2nd and 4th), but keep it on YOUR property.

    My dad used to take us there when I was kid; I have many memories from there. However, the surrounding neighborhood made worry even as a child in the 80's. I have no idea what it is like now, but I highly doubt I would ever want to go there unarmed.

    So the signs in the road? Could a person have kept a weapon in the car, should said person had attended?

    The neighborhood isn't that bad now, the Publix down the road still has visible security every time I go, but it's a generally clean, low-activity residential area.

    The sign, metal detectors and orange cones demarcating the "sterile" area were almost a full lane into the road. This was just some kind of pedestrian gate. But yes, it should be easy enough to keep a weapon in your car.

    Plenty of publicly owned golf courses in Atlanta and the metro area where you can openly carry if you like. Any tournaments scheduled for any of these?

    I live in the surrounding neighborhood, and there is little crime now. 3-bed 2-bath homes now fetch $450K. Ten years ago, it was all a totally different story.
