Illinois Women’s Golf Association

Founded in 1933, the IWGA is an all-volunteer organization devoted to advancing golf opportunities for the women and girls of Illinois by conducting state championship tournaments and through fundraising to support charitable contributions to individual and organizations that embody the spirit of amateur golf.

In addition to running three state championship tournaments each year, the all-volunteer IWGA, through its charitable giving, actively supports women and girl golfers of all ages and skill levels through our Victory Endowment Fund.  Annual contributions include grants to women’s golf teams in Illinois colleges, stipends to USGA Junior qualifiers and State Team members.  The IWGA also honors a Junior golfer of outstanding character, scholarship, and sportsmanship with the prestigious Julia Dodd Junior Award.  Funding for these and other charitable contributions comes primarily from clubs and associations sponsoring an annual Victory Tournament.  Grants totaled more than $28,000 in 2009 with total contributions from the IWGA Victory Fund surpassing $1,000,000.
