Philling the GAP: Public Golf Committee

GAP, unlike some celebrities in today’s tech-driven world, doesn’t shield (golf) from the public. In an effort to reach public golfers and to service public clubs, GAP established a Public Golf Committee in 2019. Title indicates focus here. The Public Golf Committee aims to, you guessed it, cultivate public golf throughout the GAP region. More than 50 percent of its member facilities are open to public play. “Make the game accessible for all” — an insignia the Public Golf Committee shield.

  • The Public Golf Committee is comprised of 12 individuals.
  • A bylaw change in 1996 allowed public golf facilities to join GAP.
  • The Public Golf Committee meets on four occasions annually.
