History

In 1973, the Nebraska State Women's Golf Association renamed their organization NWAGA, the Nebraska Women's Amateur Golf Association. The first executive board meeting as NWAGA was held on September 26, 1973. Several issues were addressed, including the creation of a budget for the up-coming year and the concept of hosting more than one state tournament, such as the addition of a 9-hole state tournament that would be held out-state or the possibility of a partner's tournament. During the meeting, it was reported that the membership stood at 19 member clubs and 84 individuals.
