2020 Member Play Days announced with lottery system removed, value added
More courses, more events and even more lunch.
Registration for the first Member Play Days will begin March 16. This year, there are 25 confirmed events – up from 20 in 2019. Additional dates may be added throughout the season.
A major change in 2020: the lottery process for entry into Member Play Days has been eliminated. All events will now become first-come, first-serve.
The Association made it a priority to heighten value of each event, which now all include a lunch buffet. Philadelphia Cricket Club (St. Martins) will feature a “Play-9 Play Day” with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres after the walking-only round. Additionally, new challenges await as at least five clubs on the schedule underwent renovations in the offseason.
GAP Member Play Days are open to all amateur Golf Association of Philadelphia individual members, ages 19 or older, who have a valid Handicap Index. Any GAP Member Play Day participant may request positions for up to four individuals.
All Member Play Days use a net Stableford scoring system. Points are awarded for each hole based on a score relative to par. In a Stableford system event, once you meet your net limit, you can pick up, so there isn’t any pressure to complete every hole. Each Member Play Day event features a shotgun start.
Now in its 11th year, GAP Member Play Days give individual members an opportunity to experience the Philadelphia golf scene in a relaxed, enjoyable setting. For more information, contact John Manos via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (610-687-2340, Ext. 22).
