NWAGA Involvement NWAGA sponsors the Girls' Four-State Team and provides travel expenses, uniforms, and chaperones for the competitors. NWAGA takes a great deal of responsibility for insuring that the best junior programs have the funding and support that they need to flourish and meet the needs of our junior girls, who are the future of the game for women. Our NWAGA Junior Golf Committee is comprised of a group of dedicated women who volunteer to provide the organization and promotional skills necessary to conduct fundraisers, organize volunteer efforts, inspire local champions of the cause, and to step forward to do the ongoing work of running these programs.

A team representing Nebraska annually competes against teams from Iowa, Kansas and Missouri. A new format will be introduced in 2019, with teams expanding to six players and the form of play changing to match play over three rounds (Foursomes, Four-Ball and Singles).
