East Lake Golf Club Tickets Information
The Atlanta Athletic Club, (AAC), founded in 1898, is a world-renowned athletic club in Duluth, Georgia, a suburb 23 miles north of Atlanta, Georgia. The initial home of the club was a 10-story building positioned on Carnegie Way, and in 1904 a golf course was erected on Atlanta's East Lake property. In 1967 the AAC sold both properties and moved to an expansive place in Duluth, Georgia. The evacuated East Lake spot became East Lake Golf Club and was redecorated throughout the 1990's, plus is at present the home of THE TOUR Championship PGA golf tournament.
The AAC presented the 1963 Ryder Cup at East Lake, the 1976 U.S. Open, the 1981 and 2001 PGA Championships on its Highlands Course, and the 1990 U.S. Women's Open on its Riverside Course. The Club will host its third PGA Championship on the freshly-redecorated Highlands course in 2011. Other non-golf events hosted by the AAC involve the first two Southeastern Conference men's basketball tournaments in 1933 and 1934.
The AAC proposes two 18-hole golf courses, a health center, indoor and outdoor tennis, a par-3 course, olympic-sized pool, as well as fine dining. Popular members of the AAC include golfers Bobby Jones (golfer), Charles R. Yates, and Alexa Stirling. In the 2004 film, Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius, the AAC was used to film many of the golf scenes.
