Enriching lives through the many benefits of golf by leading, supporting and promoting the sport in our region.

View WA Golf’s Strategic Plan for 2023-2028

Founded in 1922, Washington Golf (formerly known as WSGA) has grown into one of the largest amateur golf associations in the United States providing a multitude of member benefits and services to more than 92,000 golfers, 520 member clubs, and 260 golf facilities throughout Washington and Northern Idaho.

Golf for Everyone

WA Golf is committed to providing our golfers with opportunities to play and develop their passion for golf no matter their skill level. This means organizing casual golf events and the state-wide Net Four-Ball, conducting high-caliber competitive championships, or simply offering member savings at area courses to encourage play. Additionally, WA Golf Youth On Course provides kids access to affordable rounds of golf.

Authoritative golf resource

As the representative of the United States Golf Association (USGA) for Washington state and northern Idaho, WA Golf provides members and member clubs with the computational tools and services of the World Handicap System through GHIN to provide a USGA Handicap Index and Course Rating. Additionally, members count on WA Golf as their local, authoritative source for the Rules of Golf.

Giving back to the game

Volunteers are the backbone of the organization. Throughout its 100-year history WA Golf is thankful and fortunate to have dedicated members committed to giving back to the game—serving as board and committee members, rules officials, course marshals, score keepers, course raters, handicap chairs, club representatives, coaches and more. As an organization, WA Golf gives back by supporting golf advocacy and growth initiatives with financial contributions to programs such as Youth on Course, First Tee, Evans Scholarship Program, Northwest Turfgrass, First Green, Friends of American Lake Veterans Golf Course and Golf Alliance of Washington.

Along with the Pacific Northwest Golf Association, WA Golf co-owns and operates The Home Course in DuPont, Wash.

WA Golf, a 501(c)4 non-profit organization, is governed by a board of volunteers, and employs a full-time staff of 15 people.
