January 2017

That chill in the air shouldn’t scare you from teeing it up. The Golf Association of Philadelphia’s Winter Series offers members a chance to keep their game fresh during the typically quiet, “offseason” months. Two slates — branded fall and spring for distinguishing purposes — included four to six events, most of which feature a net stableford scoring format. A Player of the Year competition across four categories (Amateur Gross, Senior Gross, Amateur Net, Senior Net) adds to the participation incentive.

  • The Winter Series started in 2008.
  • Each Winter Series event features a shotgun start.
  • Greg Smith, a Radley Run Country Club member, won the Amateur Net Player of the Year Award in four consecutive years (2012-15).
  • Saint Annes Club (now known as Back Creek Golf Club) hosted the first Winter Series event on March 6, 2008. It featured professional and pro-am divisions.
  • To date, 49 GAP Member Clubs have hosted a Winter Series event. Four of those clubs — Bala, Back Creek, Blue Bell and Whitford — have done so on three occasions.
