Championships

Without the WGA, the game of golf would not be the same

We've been elevating our game since 1899. WGA's golf championships rank among the oldest and most prestigious in the United States. The winning difference is that we use our tournament legacy and reputation to further our charitable mission, the Evans Scholars Foundation.
