      East Lake Golf Club Course Review

      The East Lake is the oldest golf course/club in the city of Atlanta and the home course for Bobby Jones, the legendary golf player we all know and love. If Id have to describe the East Lake Golf Club in a few words, the words would be golf with a purpose. Located in Atlanta Georgia, the East Lake Golf Club is just 2 miles east of down-town and its a private resort, available just for members and their guests. Originally designed by architect Tom Bendelow, the East Lake Golf Club was first opened for business way back in 1908 and just five years later, in 1913, the golf course was re-designed by famous architect Donald Ross, who built 2 loops of 9 holes. Fifteen years after that, Donald Ross returned and he designed a 2nd course, which was ready to welcome players in 1930.

      In 1963, architect George Cobb made some minor modifications to the original course and today the East Lake Golf Club offers its visitors a spectacular view of Atlantas downtown skyline and its so amazing that the PGA Tour took the decision to make it the permanent home for hosting the year-end Tour Championship. Truth be told, the East Lake Golf Club is absolutely flabbergasting, boasting its immaculate and beautiful golf course, with its great greens, fairways and overall layout. The East Lake is all about pure golf, being a first class operation, challenging and yet engendering a gentile experience with its 6469 yard course, doglegs, gentle elevations and strategically placed sand-traps. The East Lake Golf Club plays very well for the pro golfers and amateurs alike, offering delightful challenges for weekend warriors like myself.
