13th Annual Golf Tournament
Info coming soon!

Our development projects are aimed at enhancing the overall experience of our university’s students. Each year the Georgia State University Department of Recreational Services encourages and supports young professionals to attend conferences at the local, regional, and national level within the recreational sports profession. Proceeds from the Georgia State University Recreational Services Annual Golf Tournament will be used to support the continual professional development of those student staff members who wish to continue their careers in recreation as they move forward in their professional endeavors.

Team Georgia State has roots as far back as the early 80′s! Somewhere along the way, participation dwindled so in 2005 the fun folks in Recreation decided to rekindle the excitement. Over the past 9 years, students, faculty, staff, alumni, family and friends have chosen to be part of team Georgia State.

The annual Kaiser-Permanente Corporate Run/Walk is Thursday, September 11.  Team warm up is in the lobby at 5:30 p.m.  The event starts at Turner Field at 6:30 p.m.   Join team Georgia State for an evening of camaraderie, fun and food! There will be sandwiches and drinks at the Georgia State tent for those participating in the run/walk! Use the discount code (gsukp14) to ensure you are charged the special GSU rate of $23. This code is for GSU faculty, staff, students, alumni and their family members ONLY. A portion of the entry fee supports the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
