About GSWPGA

Greater Seattle Women’s Public Golf Association (GSWPGA) was founded in 1950 and includes an executive board, a full slate of events and a city championship.

We currently have ten member clubs. These are the ladies clubs of Bellevue, Jackson Park, Maplewood, Mount Si, Nile Shrine, Redmond Ridge, Riverbend, Snoqualmie Falls, West Seattle and Evergreen Women’s Golf League.

Individual members can compete in most of our eight competitions and eight of the ten clubs compete in our Team Competition.

If your ladies’ club would like to join our competitions, we would love to have you. Requirements are laid out in the ‘How to Join’ section. Email GSWPGAInfo@gmail.com for more information.
