A surveyor has determined a popular Atlanta golf course contains as many as 84 old and unmarked graves.

As WSB TV reports, the graves are at the heavily-played North Fulton Golf Course, which is operated by American Golf Corporation for the City of Atlanta.

The graves at the course in Buckhead’s Chastain Park are located behind to the fifth green.

I've heard for years about the graves being there. I believe it is on several old maps of the area.
