We started with a vision...
...to promote the interests of golf among women,
increase knowledge and appreciation for the rules of golf,
to be good sports, and
to engage in friendly competition.
About the digital scrapbook project
SWGA has boxes of old scrapbooks and photo albums dating to its inception. In the early 2000's members started a preservation project and reclaimed our historic archives which were in danger of being lost forever.
2010 was the last year that a physical scrapbook was produced. In 2011, SWGA started producing digital scrapbooks through Shutterfly and other online services.
In 2014, Ann Swanson produced a book on the history of the SWGA: Playing Through, which captures our rich traditions in our 90-year history. She also wrote an earlier companion book on our sister organization, the Washington State Women's Golf Association (WSWGA), called "Celebrating 90 years of Championship Golf". Contact Ann for information about obtaining a copy.
2016 brought a new preservation project when Glen Acres members Porsche Everson and Patty Chandler scanned the entire set of scrapbooks and made them available in digital format. Margaret Campbell loaded them onto our legacy website for all to see and use.
