The body of Jimmy Hoffa was buried under a hole of an exclusive Georgia golf course that was frequented by mafia bosses, it has been claimed.

Reginald Haupt Jr., a former criminal defense lawyer known as 'Bubba,' told Fox News on Wednesday that a former client of his had helped bury the legendary Teamsters union boss who went missing on July 30, 1975.

Haupt had represented Lou Rosanova, who died in 2003 and had once run the hotel at the Savannah Inn and Golf Country Club. Rosanova has been identified by federal officials as a top member of the Chicago mob.

The lawyer recalled finding out about the alleged burial after witnessing Rosanova urinating on the hole and asking about the odd behavior.

The golf club was once owned by the Teamsters union - and Rosanova, known as 'Lou the Tailor,' had been placed there to run it by Chicago mob bosses

'It was so out of the way, it was ridiculous that he would be brought here to Savannah, Georgia,' Haupt told Fox News.

Hoffa was last seen at the Machus Red Fox restaurant in Bloomfield Township, Michigan - more than 900 miles from the golf course on Wilmington Island in Georgia, which Haupt noted 'made this the perfect place.'

'Bring him here where they can keep an eye on him. They can't go to New Jersey on Mafia property and keep an eye on anybody. They did not want to let Hoffa go and they did not want anybody to find him,' Haupt said.

The golf club was once owned by the Teamsters union - and Rosanova, known as 'Lou the Tailor,' had been placed there to run it by Chicago mob bosses, Haupt said.

The FBI had interviewed Rosanova about the claim, Haupt said, but Rosanova publicly denied being a member of the mafia until his death. Locals told Fox News that they witnessed FBI agents investigating the golf course.
