Reighard joins as Course Rating Coordinator

Cory Reighard joins GAP as Course Rating Coordinator.

Reighard joined GAP for the first time in 2006 as the Association’s first Director of Course Rating. He served in that position for seven years and then was hired as the Pennsylvania Golf Association’s Director of Competitions (2013-19).

“In some ways it feels like I never left,” Reighard, 41, of Downingtown, Pa., said. “I kept up with the personal and professional relationships that I developed with GAP and when I worked for the Pennsylvania Golf Association. It is great to be back in the fold professionally and it’s exciting to see how much has GAP grown since I left.”

Reighard will be responsible for coordinating the course rating process. His other duties will include coordinating staff and volunteers as well as delivering results from ratings to Member Clubs.

“We are excited to have Cory return to GAP,” Steve Latos, GAP Director of Member Services said. “Even after departing from GAP in 2013, he has stayed involved in the GAP network. His knowledge with the course rating system, GAP Staff, course rating volunteers and golf professionals will help elevate our team.”

Reighard got his start in Golf Administration as a USGA P.J. Boatwright, Jr. intern with the Western Pennsylvania Golf Association in 2005. 

He also serves as the Executive Director of the Society of Seniors.

“It is nice to join the talented Member Services team,” Reighard said. “With our growing membership, we want to make sure we are doing the best job rating our courses as well as reviewing those ratings in the days after. I want to keep building on the progress the Member Services team has made. I am excited to work with them.”
