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 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. The bulk of our donations are received from golf facilities, associations and individuals who contribute directly to the IWGA Victory Fund. Over the years our total contributions from the IWGA Victory Fund surpassed $1,158,000.
