Who is the NNWGA?
The NNWGA is made up of member clubs, both private and public. A part-time paid contractor is our Executive Director, overseeing compliance with our contract deliverables to the USGA and GHIN Association.
A volunteer Executive Board comprised of 8 elected members plus 3 Standing Committee Chairwomen administer the association.
A volunteer Board of Directors consisting of a delegate from each club plus the Executive Board meet twice a year in the Spring and Fall. There are currently 31 member clubs (public, private and non-real estate) with approximately 1800 individual members.
How Do I Join?
You must first join a member club and get an official USGA Handicap Index. If you join as a full home club member, you are eligible to participate in the Tournaments provided by the NNWGA and the Nevada State Women's Golf Association. If you pay as a handicap only member of a club you do not have the opportunity to participate in these Tournaments, but are offered most of the other benefits.
Member clubs are public, Private or Non-real estate. Some clubs have mid-week play days and others offer evening or weekend play. There is a full list of Member Clubs and associated facilities below.
Clubs pay an annual dues to the association to remain active with NNWGA. If you wish to form your own club, the NNWGA will help you get the necessary information to get you started. You must have at least 10 members to become a club.
