Eileen Stulb was born June 23, 1923, in Augusta. She was the first girl to make the Augusta College golf team. Ms. Stulb was runner-up in the Titleholders Championship twice, considered for many years to be the equivalent of the Masters Tournament. In the Women's Western Amateur, she was a quarterfinalist on two occasions. Stulb won the Georgia Women's State Amateur twice. She played in the U.S. Women's Amateur seven times, the U.S. Women's Open and the U.S. Women's Senior Amateur.

"Eileen's contributions to golf and leadership in life earned her the respect of her community, her peers, the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame members, Board of Directors and staff", stated chairman of the Hall of Fame Board, Bryan Persons. "Eileen will be missed."

Stulb was a member of the Augusta Country Club. She served on the Board of Directors for the Georgia State Women's Association, the Women's Eastern Association, the Titleholders Association, the USGA Senior Women's Committee and was local chairwoman for the 1971 USGA Girls Junior Championship held at the Augusta Country Club.

"I will miss her, she was an inspiration and mentor to me since I started playing golf as a young girl," said Laura Coble, the women's golf coach at Augusta State University.
