Two Pennsylvania Golf Associations Collaborate to Conduct Women's Amateur Championships

June 2, 2023

Pittsburgh, Pa - The Western Pennsylvania Golf Association (WPGA) and the Pennsylvania Golf Association (PAGA) have announced that they will simultaneously conduct their Women’s Amateur Championships at historical Sunnehanna Country Club on August 7th-9th 2023.

“We are very fortunate to have secured Sunnehanna as a site for our Pennsylvania Women’s Amateur Championship this year” said PAGA President Annie Vanzant. “In conversations with the West Penn Golf Association Women’s competition committee, we agreed that it made a lot of sense to avail the West Penn women the opportunity to compete for their championship at the same venue at the same time."

The WPGA founded in 1899 and the PAGA founded in 1909 have each conducted championship golf throughout Pennsylvania for over 123 years. In joining forces this year, they expect to conduct a championship with a strong field, providing a memorable experience for women golfers of Pennsylvania.

Four advance to U.S. Open Sectionals

Monday was the annual nerve-wracking exercise that begins the quest for a spot in the U.S. Open.

Local qualifiers are held around the country with survivors of those 18-hole advancing to Open Sectional qualifiers for spots in the championship.

Would these events be referred to as fun? Doubtful. Thrilling? If you qualify, yes. Disappointing? Absolutely.

The Western Pennsylvania local qualifier was held at The Club at Nevillewood, which turned up Monday morning dressed in its finest condition.

Amazing was a word heard several times from players after completing their rounds.

Hall of Fame

Western Pennsylvania has a lengthy, rich and storied history.

The Western Pennsylvania Golf Association celebrated its centennial in 1998. Part of this celebration was to recognize area golfers and contributors who had an impact on our history. The Western Pennsylvania Golf Hall of Fame was established in 2013 to celebrate this history. The inaugural class consisted of William C. Fownes, Jr., Jock Hutchison, Arnold Palmer, Carol Semple Thompson, and Lew Worsham.

Scholarship Fund

Founded in 1941, nearly 700 students have received a scholarship.

The WPGA Scholarship Fund was founded in 1941 and awarded two scholarships to the University of Pittsburgh and another to Duquesne University. The first Caddie Welfare Committee surfaced in 1927 and addressed issues to benefit of caddies at the various Member Clubs of the Association. Fourteen years later the movement secured enough money to sponsor its first scholars.
