Why Join?

Why are women golfers joining the Rochester chapter of the EWGA?

Simple: we offer opportunities for women to learn the game of golf, play the game of golf, and connect with other Rochester women golfers professionally and socially.

Check it out. We run low cost golf clinics. We run a variety of women’s golf leagues all over the Rochester, NY area — including evenings, weekends, and during the day.

We hold great “fun” golf events, like scrambles and scotch tournaments.

EWGA members can participate in the EWGA Championship, the largest women’s amateur golf championship in the world.

We run a mentoring program to connect newer golfers with more experienced women.

Our chapter also advocates for women’s golf by raising awareness about what Rochester women want and need from area courses and clubs.

And EWGA members receive other benefits as well, including discounts on golf-related products and on greens fees.

What do you get when you join?
