The Women’s Congressional Golf Association (WCGA) is a non-partisan membership organization. The WCGA’s primary goals are to foster fellowship and promote golfing opportunities among women who are current or former congressional staffers. WCGA members also aspire through charitable endeavors and community involvement to enhance athletic opportunities for all girls and women. The WCGA was founded in 1999, by United States Senate staffers Sandra S. King and Tamara Somerville.
In 2016, Reps. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) and James E. Clyburn (D-SC) are the Honorary Co-Chairs of the Women’s Congressional Golf Association.
