The Western Amputee Golf Association (WAGA), established in 1968, began with nearly 40 members and a single annual tournament. The organization has grown steadily and today boasts a membership in excess of 200 across eleven Western States including Alaska & Hawaii, with numerous tournaments staged throughout the year.
In addition to its golf activities, WAGA has raised money for scholarships for amputees wanting to attend a college program. Its members also work to disseminate information about new developments in prosthetic devices that allow amputees to participate in sports, and enjoy life to its fullest.
If you are a golfer and have recently lost a limb, don’t despair, you can golf! Contact your local Association, listed below, and begin to play again. If you have never played golf, but are interested in trying, contact the person from your area of the U.S., or contact the National Amputee Golf Association at firstname.lastname@example.org, for information on learning to play golf, or attending a First Swing golf clinic. While there check out the Amputee Golfer Magazine, a full-color publication about everything that is happening in the world of Amputee Golf; it is available for a small fee from the National Amputee Golf Association.
