President’s Message

Welcome to another wonderful year of golf!  The IWGA mission is to support the game of golf for girls and women of Illinois.  Thanks to all elected officers, board members, and committee chairs for working diligently to ensure the IWGA continues to offer three State Championships, award scholarships to outstanding high school senior girls, award grants to college women’s golf teams, help the USGA state team qualifiers, and support veteran’s programs and medical research. The donations obtained from individuals and clubs to the IWGA Victory Fund enable the IWGA to continue this rewarding philanthropic work.

There are many ways to contribute to the IWGA.  Such as, donating to the Victory Fund directly/hosting a Victory Tournament at your club, or donating to the Birdies for Charity program via the John Deere Classic.  Additionally, the IWGA has various philanthropic endeavors, and we are always in need of people to help at the IWGA tournaments.

The IWGA will be holding the 2022 championships beginning in June with the State Am at the Grove Country Club in Long Grove, IL.  The State Junior Championship will be held at Hickory Point in Decatur in August. The Senior Championship will be held at Eagle Ridge Resort in Galena, IL in September.

The IWGA is a wonderful organization and supports the game of golf which we all love.  If you share the IWGA vision and passion for the game, please reach out to us for more information in how you can join us.

I look forward to meeting you and perhaps play a round of golf with you.  See you on the course!

In love and friendship,

Linda Betzelberger
IWGA President
