Some GAP things change: new logo, website and mobile application.

Some GAP things stay the same: the BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship and its old (119 years to be exact), storied character. Registration for GAP’s most distinguished event opens today.

The 119th BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship heads to Stonewall (Old/North (qualifying site only)) June 11-13 & 15. Below is a list of qualifying sites for the Championship proper:

Stonewall previously hosted the BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship in 2000 and 2009. It most recently welcomed the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship in 2016.

The BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship is GAP’s premier individual championship. Participants must first advance through a one day, 36-hole stroke-play qualifier to gain one of 32 available match play positions. Those who qualify for match play must advance through four matches in two days to reach the BMW Philadelphia Amateur Final, which is typically held on the Saturday of Father’s Day weekend. The winner receives the J. Wood Platt Trophy; its namesake holds a record-seven BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship titles.

Celebrating Amateur Golf since 1897, GAP, also known as the Golf Association of Philadelphia, is the oldest regional or state golf association in the United States. It serves as the principal ruling body of amateur golf in its region. The Association’s 273 Full Member Clubs and 75,000 individual members are spread across the Eastern half of Pennsylvania and parts of New Jersey and Delaware. The GAP’s mission is to promote, preserve and protect the game of golf.
