“Golf where the great Bobby Jones played”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This course, if you are lucky enough to know someone to get you on to play a round is worth the high pricetag, at least once. As a lover of the game, the history in the clubhouse, the evolution from rundown pasture, cars in the lakes, and the local business' like Home Depot, Georgia Pacific and many others investing in rehabbing this great course is the proud moment for Atlanta. I get tickets to go to the FedEx Cup Championship and if you want to just look around, this is the way to do it.

“Golf history down every fairway.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Make the effort to walk these fairways if only from behind the ropes at Tour Championship. Better yet find a member and wrangle an invite. I played this course as an Atlanta high school golf team member in the late 60's and again in the early 80's as a guest. What a pleasure it is to see the old girl back in all her glory.

“Wonderful Lunch, Historic Surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

I was a guest at a luncheon in this historic club. It appeared to have been renovated fairly recently. It had been many years since I'd been a guest at East Lake, and it was great to see that the club is doing well. The food and service were excellent.

“An Augusta-like experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

What a treat to play on one of the best in North America. Greens were remarkable and caddies very helpful and lots of fun. When you see where the pros hit from on some of the holes it is mind-blowing. An pld style course that requires some precision shots, especially around the well protected greens. Oh. and don't leave your ball above the hole!
