Named for the Atlanta golf legend, this course is the centerpiece of a revitalized former public housing area just a few miles east of Atlanta.Measuring 3,480 yards from the back tees, this 18-hole executive course was designed by Rees Jones in 1999, and features fairways that are fast and undulating.The front nine opened for play in 1999, and the back nine followed in October 2000. A new clubhouse is currently under construction and schedule to open late summer 2001. The course is also home of the East Lake Junior Golf Academy.

Well maintained and lightly used, executive cart path, Jul 18, 2004
|reviewer: Par 3 Hacker
from Atlanta, Georgia
|This is a little-known golf course just east of downtown Atlanta. The tees, fairways, and greens are well-maintained. Par 30 out, 28 back. The front 9 are much more interesting, with a mix of long par 3, short par 3, and par 4 holes with a 180 yard water carry. Cart path is perfect, fitness not required, but no carts on turf. The back nine is fairly boring with no water hazards, just rolling terrain and some fairway bunkers. The course is not expensive. Club house has pro shop, nice bathrooms, driving range but no putting green. Carts are well-maintained Club Cars. Front nine is great for twilight play. Overall, a really nice course for the money. Caveat: If you have a problem playing up onto small greens at the top of a long uphill hole, 7 and 9 will be challenges for you.|

Great Exec Course, May 31, 2004

|Very enjoyable and surprisingly challenging. 18 holes in under 3 hours. Great staff. Excellent driving range. Don't be put off by the drive through tough neighborhoods from I-20 to the course. This is good golfing.|
