“We’re excited to welcome both Indian Hills and Lewistown to the schedule,” Joe Faust, GAP Director of Central Operations, said. “Our events appeal to any and all calibers of golfers. With both gross and net prizes up for grabs, it isn’t an exclusive championship environment. It is a chance to enjoy some of the finest facilities Central Pennsylvania has to offer.”

The GAP Central Tournament Series includes the following divisions: Amateur (19-49 years of age), Senior (50-64 years of age) and Super Senior (65 years of age or older). Should the number of participants in a division surpass 24, then two flights — as close to 12 players each without separating individuals of the same age bracket — will be created.

A Player of the Year competition, contingent on total participation, will be applied. A seasonal point system will recognize divisional champions at the conclusion of the GAP Central Tournament Series. Points will be awarded based on a Top 10 gross finish. Total points will be based on a sum of the individuals best five of seven finishes.

Cost for the GAP Central Tournament Series is $65 per event and includes golf, cart fee, food and gross/net prizes. The entry fee for the Eagles Mere Country Club event is $70. Cost for the Williamsport Country Club event is $80. Individuals can save $45 and enter the entire season in an early bird offering for $560 per player. Early bird registrants will be guaranteed entry into all events. Members can immediately select the event he or she wishes to enter prior to the event’s registration opening.

The majority of events in the GAP Central Tournament Series feature a 1 p.m. shotgun start.

The GAP Central Tournament Series will continue to offer junior golf opportunities. The junior arm will be available to individuals 18 years of age or younger.

Each event will be open to Division 1 boys, Division 1 girls or Division 2 boys & girls. Division 1 is recommended for those 13-18 years of age and will be contested over 18 holes. Division 2 is recommended for those 15 years of age or younger and will be contested over nine holes.

Participants may choose his or her division based on age and experience. However, GAP reserves the right to change a participant’s division. Furthermore, GAP expects participants in junior programming to possess course knowledge and golf swing experience.

Cost is $8 per event. Interested participants can take advantage of a one-time registration of $50 to gain entry into all junior events. Families with multiple participants will receive a discount should they choose the seasonal option on their second and third child. Cost for a multi-junior season pass is $80.
