2024 marks the 125th Anniversary of the Association with celebrations scheduled to take place throughout the year, culminating at our Awards and Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

We encourage you to join us in celebrating this special anniversary this season.

We begin our celebration with a look at the WPGA’s beginning, its five founding clubs and the historical home of the Association’s offices and museum.
