Golf with a Purpose

Golf has been, and continues to be, an integral part of the East Lake community. It has not only helped revitalize this community, but is used as a vehicle for mentoring neighborhood children through The First Tee of East Lake at Charlie Yates Golf Course.

East Lake Golf Club, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2004, is not only an historic golf club, but a philanthropic one as well. The golf club’s founding sponsor companies have contributed more than $20 million to the East Lake Foundation to revitalize the neighborhood. Net proceeds from operations of the East Lake Golf Club and the Charlie Yates Golf Course, along with THE TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola, support East Lake community programs to help families succeed. Additional support is provided by foundations, governmental entities and individuals.
