Board of Directors has been hard at
work this off-season seeking out ways to improve our club for the new
season. A few important changes for this year are noted below:
Time to mix it up with some great courses!!!
GTGP schedule includes this year, the Tour visits
Inniscrone, Makefield Highlands, Golden Phesant and some private courses
Bellewood and Hartefeld National. Several
courses return after an absence last year, including
Harbor Pines and Iron Valley . At the same time, several
favorites from our first eight seasons remain on the schedule.
Championship, a season-ending 36-hole stroke play
event, moves to Five Ponds &
We have decided to change the total to 18,000,000. Of
this, 8,000,000 will be awarded for the first event witch is
ussually a less challenging course, and 10,000,000 for the last
event which is typically more difficult. There will be no
bonus 10,000,000 purse for combined score anymore this was very
laborsome to calculate and has drawn much criticism over the
duration of the GTGP season schedule is set at 23 to 25
regular season events, running from April to September.
GTGP will travel to a yet to be determined site for the 2018
GTGP Event. The matches consist of a 2-player
better ball competition on Saturday afternoon and individual net
singles matches on Sunday morning.
Qualifying provisions for this event will be the same as last
year, with the team being selected from the Top players on the
final GTGP Money List (number of players to be determined),
and each of the players with the lowest ten Adjusted Net and
lowest ten Adjusted Gross scores who have not already qualified.
Members must play in a minimum of ten events to qualify. The
final spot for the trip will always be awarded to a none
qualifying board member.
Effective for the 2018 season we will be using multiple tee
selection in an effort to make the league more enjoyable for
everyone. We have had a strong interest in the forward
tees and plan to reinstate them.
membership fee of $100 now includes a USGA handicap through the
Golf Association of
Philadelphia (GAP). This will provide you, our
members, with a $25 savings over previous seasons when the
handicap fee was charged separately. As our long-time members
know, our annual membership fee of $100 has remained unchanged
since our inaugural 2005 season.
members will be required to keep their handicap updated through
the GHIN system. This
will help to streamline the Board's updating of handicaps in
preparation for the events.
Clarifications have been made to the policy for canceling events
due to inclement weather. If an event is cancelled in
advance by the Board of Directors due to the forecast of
inclement weather, the cancellation will be posted on the club
web site not later than noon on the day before the event.
Please see the Club Policies page
for more information.
formal policy has been established (just in case!) that requires
a minimum of twelve registered members for an event to be
