2016 Gwinnett Children's Shelter Pro/Am

Spend a day with Tour players to raise awareness and funds for the Gwinnett Children's Shelter. 

The Gwinnett Children’s Shelter Pro/Am will be one of the most exclusive events of its kind that will provide the opportunity for guests to play alongside touring professionals the Tour.  The opportunity to meet and play with some of the best players in the world at one of the most historic golf clubs in the country is an experience that will not be forgotten. 

This private event is limited to 10 teams that will consist of three guests and one touring professional. Teams will compete in a four-person, two best-ball format. The event will be competitive but also relaxed enough for every level of golfer. The touring professionals are not only there to compete alongside the guests but to help each guest improve their game according to their needs.


The Gwinnett Children’s Shelter is a private, non-profit 501©3 agency that grew out of a volunteer effort involving PTA moms, area business, community leaders and countless individuals who became aware of a growing need for our homeless children in Gwinnett and the metro Atlanta area.  

Planning and development of the Gwinnett Children’s Shelter began in 1986 and the first child was served in the fall of 1987.  Over the past many years, GCS has grown to offer far more than emergency services.  We now take homeless kids, girls aging out of foster care and young single moms from homelessness to hopeful to a home of their own!  

We’re happy to have your support in ending the cycle of homelessness for two generations at one time here at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter….A Home of Hope.
