The Canadian Women’s Senior Golf Association (CWSGA) was founded in 1922 by a few long-time competitors from Quebec and Ontario, who were looking to establish an annual tournament for veteran women golfers. Since then, the National Tournament has rotated annually among the member branches: Ontario and Quebec and, commencing in 1978, New Brunswick. Each branch holds its own Field Days. Approximately 140 women participate in the annual National Tournament, which is hosted by a different branch each year.
Objects of the Seniors (as written in 1926):
The CWSGA was formed in 1922 so friends could play golf together in friendly competition for four or five days. To quote from the Annual Meeting Minutes of 1926: ”let us be philosophic, let us extract the best out of the game, health, an equable mind, God’s good fresh air, congenial companions, give us these things and I will cheerfully take a 95 rather than a 75 without them.”
