About George A. Lottier Golf Foundation
The GALGF was created to preserve the memory of George A. Lottier and his love for the game of golf. Its mission is to provide support and training for future golfers and to assist qualified minority journalism students in enriching their education. It is able to do so through its annual Hall of Fame event and golf tournament.
Few can be credited with making golf synonymous with business as George A. Lottier managed to do in his lifetime. Therefore, this year marks the official launch of The George A. Lottier Golf Foundation (formerly Atlanta Tribune Scholarship Foundation). In continuance of his dedication to empowering students of color interested in the fields of communication, journalism and marketing, it is only fitting that the foundation name appropriately reflects the namesake of its most ardent patron.
As the brainchild behind Atlanta Tribune's Annual Golf Tournament, George not only transformed the notion of putting as a pastime into putting for a purpose — he channeled it into a legacy that extends beyond all things quantifiable.
Throughout his lifetime, George Lottier excelled in entrepreneurship, network management and communications. He created an empire based on expanding the fertile minority-owned business community.
Join Atlanta Tribune: The Magazine in celebrating the legacy of George Lottier at the Annual George A. Lottier Scholarship Golf Tournament and the Hall of Fame.
