Western States Golf Association (WSGA) was established in 1954 at a time when blacks were not allowed to golf in the PGA. We started with a group of eight small golf clubs located in the states of Arizona, California, Oregon and Washington. The first Association Championship was held in 1955 at the Sharp Park Golf Course in San Francisco, CA and WSGA sponsored tournaments began in the early 60s. The 1970s brought the Hall of Fame recognitions, the first female president and the first WSGA Junior Golf Championship. In the 80s, a computerized handicap system, the Tee-Cup Magazine and the North-South Shootout for women golfers were initiated.
