There are numerous activities and competitions that are open to women statewide if you are a golf member of a private club with an established handicap. Some events require certain handicaps but others are open to everyone. Often, the events will have different flights based on handicap. As the schedules and information are released for future tournaments, we will share this information with you.
OC&GC Women Golfer Events
These are events that are held one Wednesday evening each month with a Saturday event most months during April-September. You do not need to be a member of the 18 hole group or the 49ers group (although we encourage you to join). However, you must be a golf member with an established handicap.
For all of the Wednesday twilight events, we will either have tee times beginning at 4:30 or shotgun at 5:30 (we will know closer to each event – partly based on COVID guidelines). These will be nine hole events with a $20 entry fee and food will not be included. The Saturday events will be 18 holes with a $25 entry fee and no food included. The Women’s Golfer Club Championship two day event will be $35 entry fee with afternoon tee times for both days.

18-Hole Tuesday Ladies’ Golf
The OCGC Women’s Division plays an eighteen hole competition each Tuesday beginning in April and continuing through October. During our season you will enjoy the opportunity to play with all of our members and will be able to participate in special events such as our version of the Solheim Cup, Field Day, Guest days and different weekly games. Our members host an Invitational Tournament each June and play their Club Championship in August. Members are also eligible to compete in outside events such as PSWGA monthly competitions and Greater Tacoma Team monthly competitions which afford the opportunity to meet players from other clubs and to have reciprocal play on other private courses. Our Tuesday play uses a shotgun start so that we may all finish in time to have lunch and socialize other than just at our month end meetings. We believe your $100 annual dues will provide you with an enjoyable experience among friends which is our ultimate goal. The season finishes with an awards dinner known a Stagette. All of our golfing ladies are invited to join us for a season of friendship and fun.
This is a well established group that plays one Monday a month. The minimum handicap index is 36 and there is an annual fee of $10 and then $40 for each event you participate in. For $40, you get 18 holes of golf at the host club with lunch and prize money that is credited to your home course. The participating clubs are: Olympia Country and Golf Club, Indian Summer Golf Club, Kitsap Golf Club, Linden Golf Club, Canterwood Golf Club, Wing Point Golf Club and Fircrest Golf Club. You only have to participate in one Monday to be eligible for the PSWGA two day championship that is held in September. That cost is usually $100 for two days of golf.

Washington State Women’s Golf Association (WSWGA)
Membership in the association may be held by private clubs in the state who maintain an 18-hole course. WSWGA provides an opportunity to play many different private courses. Some of the various tournaments are: WSWGA Championship; WSWGA Senior Championship; and others. Many courses and clubs have invitation events like the OC&GC Women’s Invitational which will be held Thursday and Friday, June 17 and 18. They usually will send fliers out telling other clubs when and what is happening. Indian Summer, Kitsap and others usually have one. We will post these in the Women’s locker room at the club.
