Your Board of Directors have been hard at work as we continue our goal of putting WAGA back on the map as the Amputee/Adaptive Golf Association on the west coast. Our first order of business was to address our outdated website and thanks to our new webmaster we have just about completed that task designed to better serve our membership, sponsors and competitors. We continue to welcome any and all comments on how we could improve the website to better serve your needs. Our new secure web address is https://wagagolf.org/ . Please use the site as much as possible so that we can rise up the search engine algorithm for those who may search for amputee/disabled golf information here on the west coast.
We now have a Board of 7 in place and we have already gotten to work. We have rewritten the WAGA Bylaws to reflect a more appropriate structure that should be in place as a 501c(3) non-profit organization. We are now a ‘Working Board’ and all Board Members are now serving on one of 4 Committees. A structure that will get things done. The WAGA Board is working on rebuilding our tournament/activity schedule, updating and improving our website and much more. In the meantime, we have some very exciting news! The updated WAGA by-laws now reflect “the loss of use of a major joint” in order to be inclusive of those individuals who have orthopedic and neurological issues.
Our Tournament Schedule for 2023 continues to come together. WAGA and David’s Chair, a charity based in Medford, Oregon, founded to provide access to a variety of outdoor mobility devices that allow individuals with limited mobility to enjoy outdoor recreational activities, are co-sponsoring the West Coast Disabled Golf Championships at the Rogue Valley Country Club in Medford, scheduled to be held May 15-18, 2023. This will be a 54-hole WR4DG world-ranking event with the goal of attracting the highest-ranked disabled golfers from around the world, in what promises to be the benchmark for all highly competitive disabled golf tournaments. Sign-up now, you won’t want to miss this world-class event.
Please feel free to reach out to me or any of the WAGA Board Directors with your questions or concerns. I am looking forward to working with all of you to take WAGA to the next level and rebuild its image and standing in the world of amputee and adaptive golf.
Jim Curley, President
