WADGA - Women's Akron District Golf Association

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, six 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 Reminder

Improving Pace of Play

Ready Golf:
In an effort to speed up play, please play "ready golf." A player will be subject to penalty if she delays play or contributes to causing her group to delay. A group that is out of position and behind the established pace of play will be warned once by an official.

Out of Position:
In order to be out of position, the players must be in violation of the following: A) When the following group reaches the tee of a par 3 and the preceding group has cleared the next tee, B) When the green on a par 4 is clear and the following group has not left the tee, C) When a group on a par 5 has reached the putting surface and the following group has not left the teeing ground.

40 Seconds:
The time allotted for each shot for a player is 40 seconds. Ten seconds extra is permitted for the first to play on par 3's, first to hit shots on par 4's and 5's and the first to play on or near the green.
