We also offer clinics and other educational events at various locations to help you improve your game.

We welcome all levels of players beginner - scratch and all ages. So come check us out - we think you'll like us! Keep checking our calendar of events and league pages to keep up with our activities.

The Tour has experienced tremendous growth over the last three years. The Symetra Tour is the second-level professional golf tour for women in the United States, ranking behind the LPGA Tour but ahead of other, regional mini-tours. The Symetra Tour is the official developmental tour of the LPGA and is nicknamed "the road to the LPGA."


Volunteering is a great way to keep events that help promote the future of golf for young women available.

League Info

One of the great benefits of belonging to EWGA Philly is the ability to play in weekly leagues that are spread throughout the Philadelphia area. So why is this considered such a great benefit and why should you join a league?

  1. YOU CAN PLAY MORE GOLF:: It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or scratch player, if you don't belong to a country club you probably don't play the amount of golf that you'd like because you don't know enough women golfers to play routinely and it becomes cumbersome to arrange weekly games.  The EWGA Philly leagues offer the ability to play every week and/or even up to 3 times a week with women who love to play golf.
  2. YOU CAN IMPROVE YOUR GAME:  By playing in a league, you constantly improve your game by learning from others and practicing weekly.  You'll start setting weekly goals for yourself.  You'll start thinking more strategically about how to navigate the course.  You'll get more focused on your game.  Some leagues offer weekly competitions/games that will boost your confidence in your ability to play.  Bottom line, the more you play, the better you'll play!
  3. YOU'LL MEET NEW FRIENDS:  It's amazing the amount of camaraderie that is created throughout the season.  Many women who have met through the EWGA Philly leagues begin to play golf with each other outside of the league play.  EWGA Philly members are extremely friendly and want to enhance other women's golf experiences.  You'll likely find someone to support your golf goals and even mentor you if you're just beginning. No need to avoid playing the game you'd love to play just because you think you'll be criticized for the way you play.  That's not our goal!
So if you're looking for a way to play more, better golf in a friendly environment, keep checking our league pages for updated information.To participate in our leagues, you must be a member of EWGA. Guests are welcome to "try us out," by playing twice with one of our leagues before joining.
