East Lake for the 2023 Tour Championship

East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta – site of the PGA Tour’s 2023 Tour Championship and the final of the FedEx Cup Playoffs – was originally designed by Tom Bendelow and opened in 1908. Donald Ross redesigned the layout in 1913 and Rees Jones worked on the course in 1994.

Architect Andrew Green will begin another renovation with a goal of returning many of the Ross features to East Lake shortly after the last putt drop in the Tour Championship.

East Lake ranks No. 5 on Golfweek’s Best 2023 list of the best private clubs in Georgia and it’s #92 on the list of the best classic courses built before 1960 in the USA

The course will play to 7,346 yards and a par of 70 for the Tour Championship. No. 1 and 14 normally play as par 5s for members, but they will be listed as par 4s for the Tour Championship with only Nos. 6 and 18 playing as par 5s.

Thanks to yardage books provided by StrackaLine – the creator of detailed yardage books for thousands of courses around the world – we can see exactly the challenges players face this week.
