Golf fans will flock to East Lake Golf Club on Sept. 19-23 for The TOUR Championship, the finale event of PGA TOUR where the 30 best players compete for the FedExCup.

And while the focus is on the world-class golfers, there are also plenty of events and activities aimed directly at golf fans including a concert by Big Boi from Outkast. There will be new food and wine experiences, a ladies day out, Instagram selfie area, and an online “fan journey” to help parents preview family-friendly activities at The TOUR. Speaking of kids, they get in free with a paying adult.

Another new addition for 2018 is the 1904 Club. This members-only club will provide the ultimate fan experience to only 500 members with exclusive food prepared by some of Atlanta’s most notable chefs, private seating on the Clubhouse lawn with drink service, and concierge service.

And who will be playing for the FedEx Cup? At press time the current standings at Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas at the top of the leaderboard, followed by Brooks Koepka, Justin Rose and Bubba Watson.

The winner of the tournament will get a sizeable prize purse and a trophy based on golf legend Bobby Jones’ famous putter, the Calamity Jane.
