**Jones Lake is a Tour Course**

Located in Atlanta, Georgia, East Lake Golf Club is the home course of legendary golfer Bobby Jones and is the oldest golf course in the city of Atlanta. The Club is not only historic, but philanthropic as well. Proceeds from operations – more than $20 million to date – support the East Lake Foundation, which has helped transform one of the nation’s worst public housing projects into a thriving community. Since 2004, East Lake has been the permanent home of the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola, the culminating event of the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedEx Cup, with only the top 30 players on the points list qualifying each year.

Established in 1904, East Lake is the oldest golf course in 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.

Great scoring round Brad :shock: Wasn't far from a near perfect round. After watching another one of your rounds I'm going to redouble the effort to get the last 2 rounds recorded...
Oh, and thanks for coming back to the field a little at end of it. ;) was quite a finals.

Great golf course to finish the season. These old classic courses are so much more interesting than most of the newer ones eg Chambers Bay.IMO.

I was just checking my Round 4 video & I appear to be playing off the yellow tees not black tees. Although I still found the course quite tough. :roll:

Congrats to Braycobb on his managing of a clubhouse lead to perfection!

A great bit of fun it was and thanks for providing some fierce competition gents. A beer for your efforts!

On a more personal level, I can't wait to see how almost injuring myself on several occasions translates outdoors which is only a week away at most now. I'm preparing for a better start and thats about all though it could be rather sketchy based off what I've read around here. To make matters more typical, I played off the carpet to a raised Optishot with the heavy turftop and no ball. Doesn't exactly blow the mind for immersion but it did get me in the game, albeit at a considerable discount both in immersion and ability. I hope to have a setup where I can hit balls next time around as wasn't nearly as fun as I thought it would be to swing at nothing :P

Staying true and avoiding reinventing a swing or raising the bar much will be key with most gadget gamers I'll assume ( as I'm not really one to fiddle with gadgets for game improvement), but I feel really confident about how the game goes about revealing the relationship of path and ball. It has raised my level of understanding and reinforced what I've learned over the years. Now if only I knew the merits of the optishot sooner... :shock: I'd be further along in rehab then where I'm at the moment :D

Good luck to all who enjoy the greatest game ever played outdoors this year and may the personal bests fall!

Cheers,
Howlin
