East Lake Golf Club, Atlanta

Just took a look at the website for East Lake Golf Club, site of the Tour Championship and culmination of the inaugural Fedex Cup in about three weeks. All I can say is "Oh my gosh!" It's a gorgeous course, the clubhouse looks better than any home I've ever seen.

You can actually play this course, but there are a few things to know before you go. 1) call for a tee-time, obviously, 2) it is a walking only course, carts can be used only by persons with a state issued handicap certificate, 3) no cell phones or similar device. The standard attire (no cut-offs, collared shirts required, etc.).

If you want a spectacular, historic golf experience, near one of the South's cultural centers, Atlanta, East Lake is quite possibly the best choice.

Remember, the Tour Championship/Fedex Championship is coming in a few weeks, so you'll likely not get to play from here on in. Call ahead. Check out the website, it's great.
