The VSWGA has a junior golf committee to coordinate efforts to promote the game, especially among girls in Vermont. Half the revenue from the Closest to the Pin contests at every State Day is donated to the Vermont Golf Association Scholarship fund and to instructional programs for juniors throughout the state.
Membership to the VSWGA is now free to all junior members, 18 or younger, and discounted or free Amateur Championship fees are available.
Junior Girl Golfers have access to:
- Free or reduced-rate lessons and golf camp tuition
- Free or reduced rate greens fees at local courses
- Free used equipment donated through our ongoing equipment drive
- Mentorship with experienced women golfers throughout the state
- Free USGA Golf Handicap Index (GHIN) registration: Establish an official, internationally-recognized golf handicap updated continuously over the entire life of your game!
- Free or reduced-rate access to statewide tournaments throughout the summer season: Weekly Tuesday “State Days” offered at three regional (north, central, south) courses; Annual State and Regional Amateur Tournaments
- Scholarships: Every year the VSWGA, in association with the Vermont Golf Association (VGA), awards 10 scholarships of $1000 each for four years to Vermont Junior golfers attending colleges, universities and tech schools.
