For any woman who enjoys organized golf that includes tournaments and fun games, the HSV Women’s 18-Hole Golf Association (WGA 18-Hole) is waiting for you. Founded in 1972, with 10 original members, the WGA 18-Hole was a pioneer for women’s golf in the Village. It now boasts more than 200 members.
Play days are Thursdays, April through October, beginning with a Welcome Scramble and concluding with a Member-Member Match Play event. Each week there is a new event, sometimes for individuals, other times for two- or four-member teams. The events throughout the season include Fairways and Greens, Odds and Evens, Stableford, Sixes, and others. In July, the club hosts an Invitational Tournament, inviting guests from other clubs in other states, and in early October, there is the Club Championship Tournament, which crowns the low gross and low net champions.
“The WGA 18-Hole is an amazing group of women and GREAT golfers. There’s never a lack of fun & friendship with this group.” enthusiastically claims Sharron Montgomery, member since 2015.
Through the tournaments and other fund-raising events, the members of the association have leveraged their love of golf to also raise money for UAMS Cancer Research. In 2017, they donated more than $31,000.
