Eagles Landing Country Club is a challenging 18-hole course designed by architect Tom Fazio. Over the years, Eagles Landing has gained a reputation for being one of the best private country clubs in the South and its location, which is only 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta, is one of the club's noteworthy features.

A box lunch will be provided and immediately following the tournament will be a rewards reception, a live auction, dinner and entertainment.

Speedway Children's Charities was founded in 1982 by Bruton Smith, Chairman of Speedway Motorsports, Inc. and Sonic Automotive. Smith wanted to give back to the community and created Speedway Children's Charities, which provides funds to charities that meet the direct needs of children.

Making a difference in a child's life is the focus of Speedway Children's Charities and we strive to do this in collaboration with the non-profit organizations we support nationwide.

Individually, SCC's local chapters identify the needs of children in their communities and award grants to organizations that address them. Thanks to the generosity of many supporters, the Atlanta Chapter was able to distribute nearly $350,000 to 28 local charities at its annual grant ceremony in December, 2007.
