East Lake Golf Club
Established in 1904, East Lake Golf Club is the home course of legendary golfer Bobby Jones and is the oldest golf course in the city of Atlanta. Over the years, East Lake has given birth to 21 regional and 21 national golf champions and is the only course in history to have produced two British Amateur champions: Bobby Jones in 1930 and Charlie Yates in 1938. The course has hosted 17 major championships including the 1950 U.S. Women’s Amateur, 1963 Ryder Cup, and 2001 U.S. Men’s Amateur. In 2005, East Lake was named the permanent home of THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola.
East Lake is not only a historic golf club, but a philanthropic one as well. The golf club’s founding sponsor members have contributed more than $18 million to the East Lake Foundation to help transform one of the nation’s worst public housing projects into a thriving, mixed-income community.
