Founded in 1962, with the mission to promote interest in amateur golf for women and junior girls in the State of Delaware and surrounding areas by:
1. Sponsoring the Delaware Women's Amateur, Junior and Senior Championships
2. Educating through workshops and seminars
3. To promote, inform and enforce the USGA Rules of Golf and the USGA Handicap System,
and to determine and issue course and slope ratings in accordance with USGA approved procedures.
The DWGA tries to reach all golfers of varying ability through our tournament and open days programs.
The DWGA Tournament Program currently consists of 6 fun events, and 3 major championships.
The DWGA Open Days Program allows members of participating clubs to play other participating courses on specified days for cart fees. Nearly all DWGA member clubs participate in this program, which runs from April through October. There are approximately 200 available Open Days! The clubs offer tee times in groups of 4, and there is no formal competition on these days. This program is great for our members that are new to the game, and want to get out and play a round of golf.
