A community of women who share a passion for golf and all it brings to their lives. Founded as the Executive Women’s Golf Association, EWGA helps women get involved in golf for business reasons, for friendships, and for fun. Members learn the game, improve golf skills, and belong to a supportive network from coast to coast.
Women. College students. Corporate groups. Working women. Retirees. Moms. Those who have never held a golf club before. Those who play competitively. Those who play socially. Those who join for the networking and friendships. Some mentor others. Some love the social gatherings. Everyone is welcome, and the EWGA provides value to every member. And because EWGA is about inclusivity, men are welcome to join too.
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. You can join additional Chapters for $35 each. In addition, discounted membership options are available for Seniors (65+) and Young Professionals (18-30).
All membership levels include, at no additional charge: Complimentary general grounds admission to LPGA Tour and Futures Tour (Symetra) events; complimentary golf handicap through the online EWGA GN21 system for an official USGA handicap index; one-year subscription to GOLF magazine; a personalized EWGA bag tag and member card; and numerous special EWGA member discount offers from participating golf courses, sponsors and benefit providers.
While all membership levels offer fantastic benefits, the Executive Distinction level also includes savings of $50 toward registration for the EWGA Conference, a special limited edition EWGA branded annual gift, first choice invitations to golf events at elite venues and five-star golf resorts, and the special ClubBenefits program to play golf and access the hundreds of private ClubCorp facilities around the country and internationally too.
Membership is an individual annual membership renewable 12 months from the date joined. For new members joining EWGA for the first time, Classic membership is $155, Executive Distinction membership is $400, Senior membership is $125, and Young Professional membership is $75. Renewal fees for Classic, Executive, and Senior members are reduced $25 after the first year, and the dues amount for the Young Professional members remains the same each year.
With Chapters in 41 states, including the District of Columbia, and four countries, the EWGA is an active participant in hundreds of communities. You can check the Locations tab at the top of the EWGA website and search by your city, state or zip code to find the location nearest you. If you are unable to find a convenient Chapter in your area and are interested in helping to start a new Chapter, EWGA staff will be glad to assist in every step of the process. There is only one price for joining EWGA, and it includes membership in the Chapter of your choice.
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.
EWGA promotes positive change for women in business, sports and for life.

National Women's Golf Alliance
Three of the nation's most highly respected women's golf organizations have joined forces to launch the National Women's Golf Alliance, with the mission to increase the number of women playing golf, and improve engagement levels of existing women golfers.
The Executive Women's Golf Association, Inc. (EGWA), Golf for Cause LLC and Jan Bel Jan Golf Course Design have pooled their years of expertise, data and observations regarding what women golfers want, experience and need for an enhanced playing experience that keeps them excited about and engaged in golf for years to come. Utilizing this information, the NWGA established a base of standards and best practices that can help make golf facilities more welcoming and attractive to women and enhance golf's overall appeal to women.

The EWGA Golf Course Network is a program designed to market golf facility amenities to EWGA members. It helps increase rounds and revenue at facilities while showcasing efforts to grow women’s golf.
The EWGA attracts women who play and spend more on golf than industry averages – with members playing more than 35 rounds annually and spending $4,500 individually on rounds, instruction, equipment, travel and other golf-related items.
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.
