Philadelphia PGA Section and Silvercrest Asset Management Group Announce Return of Silvercrest Cup

Lower Gwynedd Township, Pa. (April 1, 2024) — The Philadelphia PGA Section, one of the PGA of America’s 41 geographical managing entities, and Silvercrest Asset Management Group, an investment advisor providing asset management and family office services to high net worth individuals and select institutional investors, are excited to announce the return of the Silvercrest Cup, a tournament series for Philadelphia PGA of America Golf Professionals.

The series will include four qualifying events for Philadelphia PGA Professionals, and will culminate in a $30,000 Silvercrest Cup final, hosted at Union League Liberty Hill in Lafayette Hill, Pa. The Silvercrest Cup champion is set to receive $15,000, one of the most lucrative winner’s checks on the Section’s tournament calendar. In addition to the final purse, each qualifying event will include a bonus pool of $3,000, to be shared between each qualifier’s champion and runner-up.

While the Silvercrest Cup rewards playing excellence of Philadelphia PGA Professionals and top amateurs, the series will also provide significant donations to local foundations, including the Philadelphia PGA Section’s 501(c)(3) charitable foundation, PGA REACH Philadelphia, and the GAP’s J.Wood Platt Caddie Scholarship Trust. In 2022, Silvercrest donated $10,000 to both organizations.

“We thrilled to have the Silvercrest Cup tournament series return this season, and are grateful to our partner, Silvercrest Asset Management Group, for the opportunities they are providing to our PGA Professionals, and our foundation,” said Section Executive Director Geoff Surrette, PGA. “Silvercrest values the hard work and dedication of our PGA Members, and are invested in them and the industry’s future, beginning at the local level.”

Last season, Whitemarsh Valley Country Club’s Dave Pagett, PGA, and amateur Andrew Keeling tied to share the Silvercrest Cup at Applebrook Golf Club in Malvern, Pa.

Fifty-four PGA Professionals will earn their place in the 2024 Silvercrest Cup final via a points system drawn from their performance in each qualifying event; the top eight amateurs on the Golf Association of Philadelphia’s (GAP) William Hyndman III Player of the Year list will also be invited to compete.
