Who is WWGA?

Have you just moved into The Woods? Are you here on weekends only?  Can you play on Tuesdays? Would you like to play some golf, meet some fellow players, and most of all HAVE FUN?  Please consider joining The Woods Women's Golf Association (WWGA).  The WWGA has over 80 members at all golfing levels.  We've often heard women say "I can't join...I'm not a good enough golfer."  Trust us when we say you don't have to be good.  Here's a breakdown of our membership by handicap index:

Joyce Davis


You can see that we aren't going on the pro tour anytime soon. But what we are great at is having a good time! Yes, you can laugh and play golf at the same time!

WWGA abides by the USGA guidelines for our weekend tournaments.  As such, the maximum Handicap Index allowed in its events is 40.4 for women and 36.4 for men.  For women, this equates to a 43 course handicap for Mountain View, and 33 for Stony Lick, if playing from the GOLD tees.  Anyone with a higher handicap can still play (and many do), but their allowed handicap will be capped at the maximum allowed for the specific tournament format.  This has no effect on what is entered into the Handicap (GHIN) system.


Our Tuesday Games do not have to abide by the USGA handicap guidelines for tournaments, and so Full Local Handicaps are used for the Tuesday Games.
