Cedarbrook hosted the BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship on six occasions, most recently in 2005. GAP Hall of Famers Howard Everitt and William Hyndman, III represent a third of the victors.
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.
