"I am honored to have the opportunity to partner with East Lake and the PGA TOUR to share Cooks & Soldiers tapas and dishes with the members of the 1904 Club,” said Chef Matthew Ridgeway. “I can’t think of a better way to kick off the week of festivities and I promise to deliver a high-quality culinary adventure to the patrons enjoying this elevated experience."
Members will also have access to private seating on the Clubhouse lawn with drink service adjacent to the tournament practice green, featuring stunning views of the famous par-3, island green 15th hole, as well as additional on-course viewing areas.
