As I approached the course in my rental car, you could see that the club and surrounding grounds had a spanking new look that contrasted with a neighborhood in transition. The more I learned about how Tom Cousins had used this club renovation to turn around this neighborhood, the more impressed I became. Bobby Jones grew up across the street from the 13th tee box, and I had my picture taken in front of his house. I was hoping that standing in front of his house would cause some of his skill to rub off on me, but that didn’t happen. The clubhouse is a tribute to the great Bobby Jones and worth a trip all by itself. East Lake now hosts the Tour Championship every year. Watch it on TV. Larry Berle.
