The Western Pennsylvania Golf Association’s mission is to advance the interests and spirit of the game of golf and to encourage a spirit of harmony and cooperation among golf clubs and other related associations. Primary activities include the administration of the USGA Handicap System™, educational programs for members and club employees, the sharing of information and the conduct of championships.

The WPGA was founded in 1899 and is one of the oldest golf associations in the country. The Association is the steward of amateur golf in the region. We are an association of golf clubs and their individual members brought together for the good of the game. Started by just five Member Clubs, the association now has over 125 clubs and nearly 30,000 golfers.

The Association has a lengthy, rich and storied history.
