    The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) announced today that LPGA Women Who Play, the largest amateur women’s golf organization in the world, will now be known as the LPGA Amateur Golf Association. The updated name is the result of a formal feedback process which solicited input from Chapter leaders, members and stakeholders alike.

    “After undergoing an intense feedback process and listening to our thousands of passionate members across the globe, it made sense to adjust the name of the organization to fit our collective vision,” said Jane Geddes, Executive Director of the LPGA Amateur Golf Association. “Our shared journey with the LPGA has only just begun and we look forward to the important work that lies ahead as we introduce more women to the game of golf.”

    Formerly known as the Executive Women’s Golf Association (EWGA), the organization consists of nearly 12,000 members across more than 100 Chapters internationally. Earlier this year, the EWGA joined forces with the LPGA to further grow the women’s game. Today’s LPGA Amateur Golf Association prides itself on continuing the EWGA’s original mission to create recreational, social and competitive events for women of all playing abilities.

      Changing the name was a terrific move. I chimed in on the survey that the women who play tag line didn’t quite work but the new name nails it. Have been a member of EWGA Long Island Chapter since 2004 and the new name and collaboration w LPGA is a big step forward. Great job.
