About

Our Mission

The Nebraska Women's Amateur Golf Association, founded in 1973, is an organization of golf clubs and individuals governed by amateur women golfers and formed for the purpose of promoting and conserving the best interests and true spirit of the game of golf for all women in the State of Nebraska. As NWAGA members, your participation and support is integral to NWAGA's success and will continue to enliven our efforts.

NWAGA annually conducts five tournaments for women across the state, as well as two meetings annually for officers and members in the spring and the fall. In addition, NWAGA hosts Fund Day and a Pro+Ladies event called Jamboree. Fund Day is a fundraiser that raises funds to support the organization's four-state girl's select team and Founder's scholarships. Jamboree, co-presented with the Nebraska PGA, is a team competition benefitting girl's golf initiatives. The Nebraska Golf Association provides administrative services for NWAGA, which includes the conduct of all competitions and meetings.
