About Toby Wade Chapin

Toby Wade Chapin was a former partner and head golf professional at RiverPines Golf from 1988 to 1993. Toby was not only a longtime friend of Roger Miers, president and general manager, but also he was co-founder of the RiverPines Project.

Toby was a graduate and golf team member at Georgia Southern University from 1976 – 1979. Prior to coming to RiverPines, Toby was head professional at Jones Creek Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, and assistant at Wolfcreek Golf Club in Kansas City, Kansas and Palmetto Dunes Resort in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

As a player, Toby won the 1989 Georgia Section PGA Championship and participated in the 1990 BellSouth Classic in Atlanta. He also won the 1988 Augusta Children’s Classic, participated the same year on the Georgia Section PGA Challenge Cup Team, and played on the South African Tour in 1984.

Toby is fondly remembered by many, especially those at RiverPines. Those who knew him would agree he had many wonderful attributes, but none surpassed his devotion to friendship and family, love of children, and admiration for the game of golf. 

The Toby Wade Chapin Memorial Golf Tournament was created in 1993 in remembrance of Toby, who lost his lengthy battle with cancer. Toby’s love of children and the game of golf created a perfect match for this memorial and Children’s. 

The year following Toby’s passing, a room was named in his honor at the Aflac Cancer Center. Since then, the Toby Wade Chapin Family Room has offered countless families an oasis of normalcy in a clinical world. In the years to come, the Toby Wade Chapin Memorial Pro-Am Golf Tournament will continue to support patient families in their time of need.
