Established in 1904, East Lake is the oldest golf course in the city of Atlanta. Tom Bendelow was the original course architect however in 1913 the course was completely reworked by the classicist Donald Ross, whose layout survives as the basic design today. In 1994, Rees Jones, son of the famed golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, restored Donald Ross’s original golf course design at East Lake to its current layout today.
In the fall of 2016, East Lake Golf Club announced that it would permanently reverse its nines, switching the front nine and the back nine.
