GAP webinar series

Webinar series aims to educate amid COVID-19

In an effort to engage the Philadelphia golf community during the COVID-19 crisis, GAP announces the launch of an educational webinar series.

Consider it the Association’s version of Quibi: short (approximately 30 minutes), condensed versions of seminars. Participants are encouraged to submit questions during each webinar. The GAP webinar series is free to attend and open to all. The purpose is to further educate golfers on the course rating system and the World Handicap System.

Below is the breakdown. Each webinar begins at 10 a.m. Click on a webinar to register.
