The EWGA offers two membership levels, Classic and Executive, to meet the needs of our diverse member community, and both include one Chapter of your choice.

  1. What if I am not a golfer, can I still join?

A large percentage of the new members who join EWGA every year have never played golf! Every EWGA Chapter has volunteers who coordinate golf clinics to help new golfers learn the game, the etiquette, the lingo, and everything you need to know to feel comfortable on the course. And as soon as you are ready, the Chapter has organized play dates, leagues, and events to integrate new golfers into all the activities. EWGA has programs to improve golf skills for all skill levels.

  1. Are there corporate memberships available?

EWGA works with interested companies to personalize a membership program that best meets the needs of the organization. Some companies simply want to purchase or subsidize membership for a certain number of employees, and other companies request a combination of memberships and special clinics or speakers, or might also include sponsorship of other EWGA programs. The price of a corporate membership varies depending on the personalized needs of the company. You can contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Testimonial

My experience with the EWGA has been great. We take our relationship with them very seriously as we see it as an opportunity to grow our business and enhance our relationship with women golfers. They are a really great group to work with and it allows us the opportunity to showcase our golf course and talents to a group of women golfers. Our relationship with our local EWGA chapter has doubled our women's golfing participation at Shadow Valley Golf Course. Simply hosting all of the activities the EWGA is affiliated with; including leagues, lessons, events and tournaments has increased our women’s participation by 100% compared to where we were approximately 5 years ago.
