Who will be the next great champion crowned at the Atlanta Athletic Club?
Don’t miss your chance to walk the fairways and watch the next Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar as they emerge into stardom at the home club of Bobby Jones, the greatest amateur of all time.
Two rounds of stroke play will narrow the field from 312 to 64 players, who will compete shot-for-shot in match play until only two remain. The finalists will meet in a 36-hole showdown to determine the winner.
Two Championship 18-hole golf courses, nine-hole par 3 course, 42,000 sq. ft. fitness center, outdoor clay courts and indoor tennis facility, Olympic-sized pool and magnificent club rooms and dining facilities make up a vibrant hub of activity that offers members, their families and guests an unsurpassed athletic, recreational and social experience.
The club’s charter as a private club dates back to 1898 when a group of young businessmen were looking for a place to enjoy indoor and outdoor athletics with their associates and friends. The original downtown club was located on Edgewood Avenue and through the ages twice outgrew its space and relocated. The club added a golf course and country club at East Lake in 1915 and moved to the present Johns Creek location in the late 1960s.
The great golfer, Bobby Jones, grew up playing golf at the Atlanta Athletic Club’s East Lake Country Club, which the club built in 1906. Bobby Jones became the world’s most famous amateur golfer and his career culminated with the Grand Slam of golf in 1930. He served as president of the Club and was an active member until his death in 1971.
