Registration for WPGA Competitions is now open for the 2020 season. The schedule is headlined by the 120th WPGA Amateur Championship at Allegheny Country Club and the 117th WPGA Open Championship at St. Clair Country Club. This year also marks the 100th playing of the WPGA Junior Championship.

The WPGA championship season starts with the first of four WPGA Senior Series events at Diamond Run Golf Club on May 12th and concludes with the 89th Senior Amateur Championship at Sewickley Heights Golf Club on October 5th & 6th.

The WPGA Senior Series has new handicap eligibility requirements for 2020. Players with a Handicap Index® not exceeding 12.4 are eligible for the Senior and Super-Senior Gross Divisions and players with a Handicap Index® between 5.4 and 34.0 are eligible for the Net Division. If a Handicap Index® falls between 5.4 and 12.4, the player can choose to compete in the Gross or Net Division.

Qualifying for USGA Championships begins with U.S. Women's Open Qualifying at Shannopin Country Club on May 5th followed by the lone U.S. Open Local Qualifier in western Pennsylvania at Butler Country Club on May 6th. The U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Qualifier at Willowbrook Country Club concludes the USGA Qualifying schedule on September 28th.

Golfers wishing to register for a competition or event must have a Handicap Index® issued by the WPGA and have user credentials on the WPGA Online Player Registration Portal. Please see Registration for more information and instructions.

Renewal of a Handicap Index® as soon as possible is encouraged. Delay in renewal may result in eligibility issues. Early renewal is important if you maintain your Handicap Index® at a club that does not automatically renew. For all WPGA Competitions and Events where a Handicap Index® is required for entry, the following applies: A Handicap Index issued by a WPGA Member Club is required for entry and players without a Handicap Index issued by a club licensed by the WPGA will be directed to an existing WPGA Member Club or an Association-sponsored Type 3 Golf Club.

Please note that scores from individual competitions will be posted by the WPGA to each player's scoring record after the close of competition.

Please contact the WPGA office at any time should you have any questions, need assistance, or would like additional information. Thank you for your attention and we look forward to 2020 being filled with great golf competition in our region.
