East Lake Golf Club

Our Founders, Jimmy & Bopsy Gabrielsen, Peter & Shannon Candler and Tom & Ann Cousins envisioned bringing the great game of golf and it’s inherent values to the underserved youth in our community. The Founders Cup was created to celebrate their dedication and commitment. The Founders Cup supports the Founders Scholarship and the First Tee — Metro Atlanta Life Skills Education Program

This Ryder Cup style tournament is held annually and provides a great opportunity for fellowship, celebration and healthy competition. The day also includes a pre golf luncheon with a special keynote speaker. Event tee times begin at 1:00 PM. A cocktail hour and brief awards ceremony is held at the conclusion of play.

The 2022 Founders Cup pre-golf luncheon included a panel discussion and Q & A session moderated by Rich Alvarez,  National Manager, Community Relations for PGA TOUR Superstore.
