The West Virginia Golf Association is dedicated to promoting and preserving the game of golf in West Virginia. The Association was founded in 1913 as the West Virginia District Golf Association. Our membership consists of 85 Member Clubs and over 11,000 individual golfers throughout the state of West Virginia. We serve as a central source of information for our Member Clubs. In addition to our various services, we generally represent the United States Golf Association (USGA) primarily through administering the USGA Handicap System, the USGA Course/Slope Rating System, conducting qualifying rounds, and handling amateur status matters. In addition to those core functions, we also administer The First Tee of West Virginia and one day events for Men, Women, Juniors and Seniors. It is also our privilege to protect the rich history of golf in West Virginia through the West Virginia Golf Hall of Fame.
WVGA Mission: To preserve and advance throughout West Virginia the best interests and true spirit of the game of golf as embodied in its ancient and honorable traditions and lend its cooperation and assistance to the United States Golf Association.
