Who is GAP?

GAP, also known as the Golf Association of Philadelphia, is the oldest state or regional golf association in the country. Our regional reach spans across four states: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. Since our inception in 1897, GAP has promoted the game of golf to provide more opportunities for more people across the region to enjoy the game of golf as we collectively write the game’s next chapter.


Our mission is simple: to preserve, protect and promote the game of golf. Every GAP activity is designed to do just that. We are dedicated to providing exceptional golf opportunities, conducting competitive events and supporting the growth of golf at all levels. Through integrity, inclusivity, and a commitment to excellence, GAP strives to be a leading force in helping shape the golf community.


We envision a golfing community where every individual, regardless of skill level, finds joy, fulfillment, and a sense of belonging through the game of golf. Our vision is to foster a vibrant golf culture that transcends generations, while being a leader in promoting the values and virtues inherent in the game.


Integrity. Excellence. Inclusivity. Community.  These values collectively guide GAP in its pursuit of providing a positive, enriching, and inclusive golfing experience for all.

Why adaptive golf?

Because golf is for everyone, regardless of physical limitations. All of our adaptive golf initiatives are designed to break down barriers and create an environment where individuals with disabilities can actively participate in and enjoy the game. By launching this programming, we aim to inspire individuals facing unique challenges to discover all that this game offers.
