The First Tee of Atlanta is proud to announce its twentieth year in service to the youth of metro Atlanta. Two decades of dedication to youth development, Nine Core Values™ and never losing focus on the task of creating Good Golfers and Better People.

When Jimmy and Bopsy Gabrielsen founded The First Tee of Atlanta in 1999, they envisioned bringing the great game of golf and it’s inherent values to the underserved youth in the community. Since the Chapter’s inception our impact on children has continued to grow and expand impacting thousands of youth annually while fostering coach-mentor relationships that will last a lifetime. Every one of you plays an important role in our mission. It is only because of your enthusiasm, support and dedication that we are able to continue this important work.


Looking Back and Driving Forward

Throughout 2019 we will celebrate this milestone in a number of ways. Our goal is to include as many current and former participants, parents, volunteers and leadership staff to be part of this celebration. 

Stay Tuned!
