Registration for the Golf Association of Philadelphia’s 108th Open Championship is now officially open.  You think they might get a few applications?  This year, the event will be held at… Pine Valley.

From the GAP website:  “The field will consist of professionals who are active members of the Philadelphia Section PGA in good standing, head professionals of GAP Member Clubs and amateurs who are members of member clubs and have handicap index of 7.0 or less.”

Even if you can’t play your way in, the championship will present another opportunity for you to visit Pine Valley (they open it to spectators annually for the Crump Cup as well).

They’ll be opening this event to the public, and you can get more information about that in a podcast with  GAP President Frank Rutan here at
