Who we are & what we do
The Edmonton Golf Association as it exists today was formally established on October 16, 2003 following the amalgamation of the Edmonton Ladies Golf Association (ELGA) and the Edmonton Golf Association (EGA). The history of the EGA can be traced back to the first men’s championship conducted in 1921 and the first ladies championship event in 1935.
The EGA seeks to be exemplary in its leadership and governance. A voluntary Board of Directors, comprised of elected representatives from member clubs meets on a regular basis together with frequent meetings of key committees to ensure the ongoing progress and management of EGA events and activities.
The Association is truly indebted for the contributions made by the Directors, Officers, and Honorary Directors who give so generously of their time and effort in the interests of golf in the Edmonton area.
What is the EGA?
The Edmonton Golf Association is a registered non-profit society of associated member clubs formed in 1921 to promote and preserve the game of golf in and around the Edmonton area. The Edmonton Golf Association was incorporated in Alberta on October 16, 2003 and is run by a Board of Directors comprised of volunteers from member Clubs.
What does the EGA do?
The EGA works with the golf community and local businesses to schedule, plan and execute tournaments for the enjoyment and participation of amateur and professional golfers.
The EGA conducts a number of major tournaments annually, as well as organizing interclub competition for men, ladies and junior players in Edmonton and surrounding areas.
Who can become an EGA member?
Invitations to join the EGA are sent to golf clubs in and around the Edmonton area prior to each golf season. Clubs who would like their members to participate in EGA tournaments and interclub pay a fee to the EGA on behalf of their Club members.
All golfers are welcome to participate in any EGA event.
How are EGA member courses involved?
Member Clubs assist the EGA by hosting EGA tournaments at their golf clubs during the course of the golf season. Clubs who have joined the association are invited to attend the annual meetings. Clubs host interclub play for any Club wishing to participate.
