Philling The GAP

GAP entered a partnership with the DSGA (Delaware State Golf Association) effective Jan. 3, 2022. This merger increased GAP’s membership to more than 90,000 golfers across parts of four states. The DSGA included 30 Member Clubs, 20 annual events and nearly 8,000 golfers. Former DSGA Executive Director Laura Heien (2019-21) joined the GAP team as Director of Delaware Golf. Administering core USGA services such as handicapping and course rating, in addition to increased playing opportunities for golfers in the state with the full complement of GAP events, became a core focus.

  • The Delaware Amateur Championship, a three-day, 72-hole stroke play affair, highlights the DSGA event calendar.
  • GAP members are eligible for DSGA events. DSGA members are eligible for GAP events, including Member Play Days. Win, win.
  • The Delaware State Golf Association was founded in 1952.
  • GAP and DSGA, respectively, field teams in honorary events such as the Senior Challenge Matches and Williamson Cup.
