THE CYPRESS LANDING WOMEN’S GOLF ASSOCIATION (WGA) WAS FORMED IN 1998 WITH JUST 18 WOMEN. TODAY, OUR MEMBERSHIP EXCEEDS 115 MEMBERS.
We are the largest Women’s Golf Association (WGA) in eastern North Carolina. We have an active membership which includes residents and non residents. The reason we are the largest women’s golf association in eastern North Carolina is because of the mentoring with new golfers, the emphasis on friendly competition and having fun.
About The WGA
The purpose statement of our association is to increase active participation, to encourage friendly competition, and to promote interest in the game of golf among the ladies of Cypress Landing Golf Course. A WGA Handbook is provided to each member with important facts and explanations for the new comer. The WGA Bylaws can be accessed here.
The WGA has an 18 hole group and a 9 hole group, and includes women of all ages and handicaps. The women play from the red tees or the forward teal tees. Golf is a social game and the WGA season demonstrates that fact. The March through November season includes weekly Play-days each Thursday geared for all levels of play, monthly Ladies Night Out (nine holes of golf followed by dinner), a Member-Member, a two day WGA Solheim Cup, and a WGA President’s Cup.
