Philling the GAP: Education & Player Development

Educating the golfing population of the Philadelphia region is essential to the Association’s mission. Staying at the forefront of discussions throughout our game is a part of what we do. Making sure golfers in every state are up-to-speed and knowledge about the on goings of the game is important to us. For those reasons, programming and seminars are constant on the GAP calendar. Player development programs such as Golf in Schools and First Green allow inexperienced or aspiring golfers the chance to tee it up. Fore the Ladies events in the GAP region are the perfect networking opportunity for women golfers looking to learn about the game or meet fellow playing partners. GAP also offers seminars and meetings that cater to both Members and Member Clubs throughout the year. Also included in the Player Development realm is our growing Youth on Course program, which offers junior golfers the chance to play affordable golf all over the GAP region in order to strengthen their love for the game.
