Located in Stockbridge just 20 minutes south of Atlanta, Eagle's Landing Country Club features a challenging 27-hole layout and a remarkable 51,000-foot plantation-style clubhouse. Originally designed with 18 holes in the 1980's by distinguished course architect Tom Fazio, Eagle's Landing was recently renovated in 2008, adding nine additional holes and Bent Grass greens.
Speedway Children's Charities was founded in 1982 by Bruton Smith, Chairman of Speedway Motorsports, Inc. and Sonic Automotive. After a personal loss, Smith wanted to give back to children and the community, creating Speedway Children's Charities to provide funds to charities that meet the direct needs of children. SCC best affects children's lives by supporting organizations that work tirelessly to see that children's needs are met and that no child is left behind regardless of illness, social environment or disability.
Thanks to the generosity of many supporters, the Atlanta Chapter was able to distribute nearly $245,000 to 28 local charities at its annual grant ceremony in December, 2008.
