CWGA Membership Information

The Connecticut Women’s Golf Association provides competitive golfing opportunities at member courses throughout the state. Beginning each spring, members can enjoy several rounds of golf, meet new friends and experience many levels of competition during the season. Competitive events include individual stroke play and better/best ball tournaments. Member Championships and other competitions involving teams from surrounding states are held annually. Each fall, teams from our member clubs are invited to take part in the CWGA Presidents' Cup Team Matches, a highly competitive and exciting series played in match-play format. For more information regarding golfing events offered by the CWGA, please visit our Tournament page.


Members of the Connecticut Women’s Golf Association receive an annual Membership Booklet that contains information regarding tournaments and schedules, a list of member clubs as well as policies and procedures.  The Nutmeg Golfer, the news bulletin for the CWGA, is published  bi-annually and available to view on the website. 


A CWGA membership meeting is held annually in the fall and is open to all members. An awards ceremony is conducted and committees report on the highlights of the year. New officers are introduced and the meeting concludes with a luncheon.
