INTRODUCTION

The Michigan Women’s Golf Association (MWGA), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, was established in 1986 to help promote the game of golf and to provide education and information for all levels of female amateur players in our state. The Association is open to female golfers of all skill levels.  The MWGA conducts several golf tournaments each year and assists the USGA in administering sectional qualifying rounds in Michigan for the USGA Women’s Amateur Public Links (WAPL) Championship. The Association was also instrumental in helping to establish the Michigan Women’s Senior Championship now sponsored by the Golf Association of Michigan (GAM). The MWGA was the first female public players association in the nation to become a member of the USGA and has received national recognition as a women’s public golf association.

In 2006, the year of our 20th anniversary, we took on the new challenge of aligning our organization with a local charity, which mentored girls in the Detroit area from the eighth grade through their senior year of high school. Women of today supporting the women of tomorrow seemed natural.  In 2007 we took our commitment one step further and through the LPGA-USGA we set up a Girl’s Golf Program at locations in metro Detroit.
