Philling the GAP: Team/partner events

Who says golf isn’t a team sport? We certainly don’t. GAP carries a knapsack of team and partner goodies. It stands to reason; GAP, after all, was founded on the heels of an interclub match at Devon Golf Club. That moment evolved into the BMW GAP Team Matches, the longest running competition of its kind. It’s the Association’s premier team event, but it isn’t the only event. More than 10 annual offerings allow golfers to join forces with friends and fellow members in competition. Take your pick — from the Philadelphia Team Championship to the Four-Ball Stroke Play Championship. Not to mention a litany of AGA/GAP better-ball opportunities.
