The combination of history with Rees Jones' magnificent restoration of this Donald Ross Classic makes East Lake a special experience in every way. Walking this course in the footsteps of Bobby Jones as well as the modern tour players is just part what makes this a bucket-list stop. Getting to spend time in the clubhouse with its dozens of historic photographs, trophies and other memorabilia just completes it.

From the moment you enter the property, you are treated like a member - sometimes even better. From the valet for the car to the caddies to the pro shop everyone treats you wonderful. The course was a little torn up with the construction of the new 9th hole (which will be the 18th for the Tour Championship). The greens are everything you would want and more while the course layout is varied enough for a fun round. Be prepared for a good walk as there is more undulation than you would expect.

East Lake is hosting the inaugural East Lake Cup and I was fortunate enough to get a spot in the "am/am" on Sunday with the college players.

From the moment you drive inside the gate, everything in this golf club is top-notch professional and of the highest quality. The hospitality is unmatched; from the car valet to the clubhouse food and beverage service staff to the golf professionals on site, you feel like a long-time member even if its your first time. These guys realize the history behind the club and want to make you feel right at home. The course, despite the large amounts of rain, drained well and was in better-than-perfect conditions. The greens are lightning fast but roll true at the same time. The caddies here know their stuff and you would be stupid not to listen to them. The course elevation makes it a good test but stay out of the rough as it makes your next shot extremely difficult. There are no easy holes at this course, however, with that said, the underbrush is mostly clear so losing balls is actually somewhat difficult to do.

This course has so much history and is a absolute privilege to play. Chad Parker and his team do a tremendous job here, so thank them if you ever get the opportunity to play this beautiful golf sanctuary.
