The Connecticut Women's Golf Association is a voluntary not-for-profit organization founded in 1919. The purpose of the CWGA is to provide competitive golfing opportunities for its members, to promote understanding of the rules of golf and to encourage female junior golfers statewide.
CWGA now comprises 62 member clubs with a membership of over 400 women. Club membership in this Association is limited to private golf clubs in the State of Connecticut. It is a privilege and a pleasure to play some of the finest courses in Connecticut as a member of CWGA.
The members of the CWGA are serviced by a volunteer Board consisting of an Executive Committee and standing committees. CWGA works with the Connecticut State Golf Association (CSGA) and in accordance with the rules adopted by the United States Golf Association (USGA). Each year the CWGA conducts a Championship for its members as well as championships for Seniors , Legends and Junior Girls.
Our organization also offers members of varying golfing abilities the opportunity to participate in one-day tournaments, interclub team matches and competitions out of state. CWGA annually co-sponsors other major women's competitions, including the Connecticut State Women's Amateur Championship and the New England Women's Golf Association Championship.
The Connecticut Women's Golf Association is committed to promoting junior female golf across the state. CWGA sponsors an annual Junior Girls’ Championship which is open to all junior girls in the state of Connecticut. In addition to this competition, CWGA also awards scholarships to deserving young women based on academic performance and financial need.
