Casual Golf Days registration launched

Posted June 1, 2009 - Western Pennsylvania Golf Association - Contact

Casual Golf Days allow members and friends to participate in WPGA organized non-competitive golf events. We wish to introduce the Association to more golfers, who may not play in the WPGA’s championship program. These days are a chance for golfers of various skills to have a good time with friends at a WPGA Member Club that they may not normally get the chance to play.

Events are open to all golfers, both men and women, regardless of skill level, who want to play golf for fun at a reasonable rate. No Handicap Indexes are required.

Registration begins on June 01, 2009. Entry fees for these events are $70.00, and this includes golf, cart fees, range balls, and a sleeve of golf balls.

Cancellation/refunds may be done by calling the WPGA office (412-826-2180) or e-mailing Executive Director Jeff Rivard. Refunds will be minus a $10 processing fee.
