Welcome to the Website of The Women's Akron District Golf Association (WADGA)
The purpose of our organization is to promote good sportsmanship and the best interests of competitive golf.
Private golf clubs in Medina, Portage, Stark and Summit counties, which have been approved by the governing body, are members of WADGA. Any woman of amateur status, as defined by the USGA, who is a full member of a member club, shall be eligible to compete in golfing activities, provided that her handicap index is 28.0 or lower. Please view our Constitution.
Our Executive Board schedules all golfing activities. Each summer, two team events, seven stroke play events in flights and a three-day championship are held at member clubs by rotation.
Photos of member clubs are featured throughout this website. For more information, please contact the WADGA representative from a member club or contact our President through her email listed on the bottom of each page.
USGA Rule of the Week
Improving Pace of Play
Minimize your time on the tee:
On the tee, it is usually acceptable for players to "hit when ready". Save time by playing a provisional ball, if you think your original ball is lost or out of bounds.
Keep your pre-shot routine short:
Pick your line of play and trust yourself. Take one practice swing, set up to the ball and play your shot. Be ready to hit when it is your turn and be efficient after your shot, start moving toward your next shot promptly.
Share yardage information:
If others you are playing with do not have electronic range-finders, you should be friendly and exchange yardage information.
