Individual golfer dues paid by Member Clubs, the financial lifeblood of the Association, will rise in 2005 to $18 from $15. This is the first increase since the Association moved to $15 in 2000.

The increase is designed to keep the Association's cash operations on a break even basis. $18 is consistent with the national average of dues for regional amateur associations that were $18.50 as of 2003. Since the previous dues increase in 2000, the WPGA has provided over $100,000 of computers to Member Clubs for GHIN (Golf Handicap & Information Network), a USGA service, computations, added Public Links, Women's, Parent-Child, and Fred Brand Century championships, and employed a Director, Membership Development & Services.
