Philling the GAP: Association honors

October 2017

Golf is a game of honor. In that vein, the Association does its part by honoring those who support it in any way, shape or form. For example, three awards — Arnold Palmer Lifetime Service, Distinguished Service and Junior Sportsperson — recognize individuals who exemplify the spirit of the game. The Association presents a plethora of year-end honors, too: Players of the Year (Amateur, Junior, Senior and Super-Senior) for on the course achievements, Volunteer of the Year for the individual who helps make those achievements possible. Don’t forget about the Association’s Hall of Fame, a permanent home for the organization’s greats. It’s an honor to honor those who aid us in preserving, promoting and protecting the game of golf.

  • The Arnold Palmer Lifetime Service Award is the highest award of the Golf Association of Philadelphia.
  • The Junior Sportsperson Award was introduced in 2006.
  • Fourteen individuals currently occupy the Golf Association of Philadelphia’s Hall of Fame.
