The Golf Association Of Philadelphia
For over 125 years G.A.P.(Golf Association Of Philadelphia) has been committed to celebrating and growing Amateur Golf. Starting in 1897 with only 4 Golf Clubs and a few hundred members, GAP has grown to over 335 Golf Clubs and over 90,000 members across Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. So when GAP found out that a putter built out of an aircraft grade alloy was being 100% CNC milled at Makefield Putters’ headquarters in Bensalem, PA; of course they had to know more.
An article featured in the Summer 2022 G.A.P. magazine gives you the inside scoop on Makefield Putters. The article highlights everything starting with co-founder Everett Farr’s inspiration for a putter head with an adjustable weight system to the Makefield Putter’s debut on the Golf Channel. However, becoming recognized by some of the most notable names in golf was no easy feat. The article goes on to explain how Makefield’s co-founders Matthew Fuchs & Michael Little brought Farr’s idea to life and into the hands of Michael R. Brown Jr., a two-time recipient of the William Hyndman, III Player of the Year award. After Brown’s positive assessment of the putter, things really started to take off. By the end of this year(2022) Makefield is forecasting production of 5,000 putters just to meet the demand here in the G.A.P region. Click here to read G.A.P.’s full article on Makefield Putters.
