Welcome to CWGA
The Connecticut Women's Golf Association is a voluntary not-for-profit organization founded in 1919. CWGA provides competitive golfing opportunities for its members, promotes understanding of the rules of golf and encourages female junior golfers statewide.
CWGA now comprises 61 member clubs with a membership of about 500 women. Club membership in this Association is limited to private golf clubs in the State of Connecticut.
As we mentioned in the November Newsletter, we are moving from the USGA's Tournament Pairing Program ("TPP") to Golf Genius ("GG") for membership renewal and tournament management in 2018.
The introduction of the Golf Genius system has been delayed and will not be available in time for us to begin membership renewal on January 1st, the date we normally begin renewals. As a result, we have decided to delay the beginning of the renewal period to February 1st.
The old TPP system will be unavailable after year end and any links you have to log in or view the TPP tournament schedule will no longer work as of January 1st.
Please watch your inbox for updates. We will provide more information on the 2018 renewal process once GG has been released for our use.
Thank you for your patience and have a Happy New Year!
