TOURNAMENT HISTORY

The Golf Association of Philadelphia was founded on the concept of friendly competitions between rival clubs. Throughout its 123-year history, many of America’s — and the world’s — top amateurs had roots to the Philadelphia area. From Albert H. Smith, the first Golf Association of Philadelphia Amateur champion, to J. Wood Platt, William Hyndman, III, R. Jay Sigel and all the current champions, GAP’s history is long and unmatched.
