Tee it up in a relaxed environment while getting a chance to test your game at a course you’ve always dreamed of playing. After all, Member Play Days are all about that – showcasing our Member Clubs’ fairways and greens while offering affordable access to our Members. On this year’s schedule, 27 events are set with the potential for more venues to be added.

GAP Member Play Days are open to all amateur GAP individual members, ages 19 or older, who have a valid USGA Handicap Index. After the previously announced merger in 2022, Delaware State Golf Association Members are eligible for all Member Play Days. Any GAP Member Play Days participant may register for up to four individuals.

Most Member Play Days use a net Stableford scoring system. Points are awarded for each hole based on a score relative to par. In a Stableford system event, once you meet your net limit, you can pick up, so there isn’t any pressure to complete every hole. Each Member Play Day event features either tee times or shotgun starts.
