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 association, through its charitable giving,
actively supports women's golf teams in Illinois public colleges,
the Evans Scholars Fund, programs for veterans and the Susan G.
Komen Fund. Annually, the association awards the Julia Dodds
Scholarship to an outstanding junior golfer. Funding for these and
other charitable contributions comes primarily from clubs and
associations sponsoring an annual Victory Tournament. Grants totaled
more than $24,000 in 2005.
Board members' names, past tournament results and entry forms are
