Workhorse Tour named an official GAP partner

The Workhorse Tour, a golf-centric branch of Workhorse Brewing Company, will join forces with GAP (Golf Association of Philadelphia) in 2022.

As an official partner and GAP Member Club, the Workhorse Tour will work hand-in-hand with the Association to offer expanded member benefits to its players, including all of those included in a GAP membership.

“We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with the GAP. If you want to be a part of the broader golf community in this region, there has to be involvement with an Association like GAP,” said Workhorse Brewery co-founder and Workhorse Tour General Manager Dan Hershberg. “Solidifying a relationship with the Association is a key step in establishing brand equity and viability for the Tour. It’s hard to overstate how much the GAP means to golf in this area and working with their organization will provide the resources to put the Tour product in front of a receptive community.”

A standard season-long membership for the Workhorse Tour begins at $50 and includes a GAP/USGA Handicap Index number, a $25 gift card for the Workhorse King of Prussia Taproom and a Workhorse Tour membership card that’s good for regular discounts at the Taproom. Also available is a premium-tier membership $150, which includes everything in the standard membership, one complimentary playing opportunity through GAP Member Play Days or Philadelphia PGA Section Pro-Ams. This membership level is first-come, first-serve and limited to 100 spots. A third membership, through a partnership with The Golfer’s Journal, includes a year-long membership to its quarterly publication, as well as the benefits offered in a standard membership.

In addition to the Handicap Index, Workhorse Tour members are eligible for GAP Member benefits such as subscriptions to GAP Magazine and Golf Digest, plus access to GAP championships and events, including the full Member Play Days slate.

“Dan and the team at Workhorse have already made an impact on public golf in the GAP region and we’re excited to work with them to continue to grow the game in that sector,” said GAP Director of Member Services Mario Machi. “The Workhorse Tour provides easy access to competitive golf combined with a flexible schedule at some great public courses in the area and we couldn’t be happier to partner with a company that shares our mission statement of preserving, promoting and protecting the game of golf. Having Workhorse products available at select Member Play Days and other GAP events is a great perk for our players and just increases the experience golfers will have when teeing it up in a GAP event.”

The Workhorse Tour features more than 40 events on tap in 2022, which each run over a week span. Members may book available tee times during that week-long window and post one round to qualify for the individual tournament leaderboard, as well as the season-long standings. The majority of Tour events are 18-hole, stroke play format. The only other cost to golfers beyond membership dues are greens fees paid to the course at the time of booking during Tour-event weeks.

Workhorse Brewing Company
Workhorse is driven by a simple statement: without quality, there cannot be growth. Opened to the public in 2018, Workhorse Brewing has been committed to that mantra from the start, beginning with a substantial investment in a top-of-the-line German brewhouse and a sparkling 70,000 square-foot production facility in King of Prussia. Led by award-winning brewmaster Nate Olewine and an accessible, approachable brand that resonates with its local market, Workhorse has emerged as one of the top craft breweries in the region, quickly scaling distribution throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Carried by all major grocery chains including Whole Foods, Wegmans, Giant and ACME, as well as hundreds of bars, restaurants and beer distributors–and now more than 60 area golf clubs–Workhorse proudly carries on the craft tradition of a long line of high-quality microbreweries in Pennsylvania.
Celebrating Amateur Golf since 1897, GAP, also known as the Golf Association of Philadelphia, is the oldest regional or state golf association in the United States. It serves as the principal ruling body of amateur golf in its region. The Association’s 300 Member Clubs and 90,000 individual members are spread across the Eastern half of Pennsylvania and parts of Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey. The GAP’s mission is to promote, preserve and protect the game of golf.
