The North Carolina Women's Golf Association promotes golf for junior girls in North Carolina. The main objective of the NCWGA's effort is to support programs which benefit the largest number of girls.

LPGA-USGA Girls Golf
Girls are not only treated to the fundamentals (grip, swing, posture, etc.) but they learn valuable tips on etiquette, rules and history of the game. Whether the goal is to compete at the highest levels or to play on a high school golf team, or simply to be outdoors and have fun with friends, girls are gaining more than just athletic skill.
LPGA USGA Girls Golf is setting a priority for the promotion of golf among young girls. This program is providing girls from all walks of life the opportunity to play golf together and at the same time preparing them to meet a challenging world with confidence.
Each site is coordinated on the local level by a "site director". These directors can be LPGA or PGA professionals, USGA or EWGA members, Girl Scout leaders, members of local golf associations, moms, or dads – anyone who supports growing the game of golf for girls. LPGA USGA Girls Golf programs must have an LPGA or PGA professional leading the instruction.
Penny Per Stroke
A few years ago the NCWGA started a program to raise money through our member clubs called "Penny Per Stroke." This is how it works: if your LGA would like to participate, you would chose one ladies’ play day during the year which you would designate as a fund raiser for North Carolina junior girls’ golf. On that day, each participant would donate a penny for each stroke of her score. The money would then be sent to our treasurer to be deposited into our junior girls’ account. With this program, and other donations, we are able to offer some financial help with tournament and clinic expenses.
Checks to help support North Carolina junior girls' golf can be made to: NCWGA, Inc.
