CWGA Match Play Championship
CWGA to join forces with the CGA
We are excited to share that the CWGA Board of Directors has unanimously voted to unite with the Colorado Golf Association to better serve all golfers in the state and to further grow the game in Colorado. This will allow both associations to comply with a USGA directive to streamline the state association structure across the country. The combined association will be known as the Colorado Golf Association.
The idea of joining forces with the CGA is not new. We both recently celebrated our centennials, and believe that the opportunity to grow and expand golf in Colorado for the next 100 years lies through developing one, strong, state association that serves everyone. The formation of an integrated association accomplishes the strategic goals of the CWGA, the CGA and the USGA.
What does this mean to you? We will continue to serve our clubs and women golfers in all the ways that we do today. Tournaments, rules seminars, golf experiences, newsletters, handicap services, club support and the annual meeting will continue. In addition, the integration will provide us with the resources to expand our programs in collaborative and innovative ways that we cannot do today.
Both associations are enthusiastic about the opportunities this means for the 60,000 members who will benefit from this collaboration.
Here is a link to a Q&A with more detailed information.
The next steps, as explained in the Q&A, are to form a transition committee with members appointed from both the CWGA and CGA to manage the integration, and to call a special meeting (by proxy / phone / internet) for club presidents/representatives to affirm the CWGA Board resolution. Club presidents will be notified by email by mid-July of the date and logistics of this meeting.
If you have any questions that are not answered by this, please feel free to email us at email@example.com. We would be happy to hear your comments and answer your questions.
