PHOTOS: The 11 most iconic clubhouses in the game
East Lake dates to 1907 and is certifiable golf royalty, having been the home club for young Bobby Jones. Its third clubhouse is a 1926 design from Philip Shutze of Hentz, Reid & Adler, a prominent Atlanta firm. The clubhouse was partly restored and partly transformed in 1995 by Tom Cousins, the Atlanta developer who rescued East Lake from the brink of extinction. Cousins enlisted Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart to help preserve the Bobby Jones legacy while also serving as a beacon of neighborhood gentrification. Inside: a treasure trove of Jones memorabilia. Outside, a handsome backdrop for the 30 pros each year who qualify for the Tour Championship.
