Compher Cup – History

The annual matches pit GAP against the New Jersey State Golf Association (NJSGA) with 12-man teams from each side competing, concurrently, in an individual match and four-ball match. Each match is worth one point. Ties are halved. If teams tie, reigning winner retains the Compher Cup. GAP leads the all-time series 39–13–5. The 2005 Compher Cup was rained out.
