Did you know in 1993, a local charitable foundation purchased East Lake Golf Club with the intent to restore it as a tribute to Bobby Jones and the club’s other great amateur golfers. The East Lake Foundation used the renovation as a catalyst for revitalizing the surrounding community.
The East Lake Foundation led the creation of an entirely new community – The Villages of East Lake apartment homes; Charles R. Drew Charter School, serving more than 800 children age 3 through grade 9; the East Lake Family YMCA; the Sheltering Arms Early Education and Family Learning Center; and the 18-hole public Charlie Yates Golf Course.
As a result, every year the proceeds from The Tour Championship by Coca-Cola goes back to the community schools! When you purchase tickets to the TOUR Championship you are helping the East Lake community.
This year the Tour Championship by Coca-Cola is offering specially priced ticket deals for the FedEx Tournament in September. This is a great way to introduce children to the sport of golf without breaking the bank.
