Welcome to District 1

This season, I am excited to continue the outstanding work of Pam and Mark Rachor as your new tournament director. It’ll be a great season with subdistrict tournaments at Snohomish Golf Course, Everett Golf and Country Club, Battle Creek Golf Course and Bellingham Golf and Country Club. Our district tournament will be at Whidbey Golf Club.

Check out WJGA’s state open events and, for the first time for our 8- to 13-year-old players, junior open events. Also, coming from last year’s success, WJGA will again be holding the State Team Championship for our high school players.

See the 2021 Schedule for more details.  Registration for events opens March 1st, at 9:00am.

Please take the time to read the Player and Gallery Rules, Walking Scorer Policies, District Qualifying Information, Refund Policy and Tee Times in the tabs below.

For returning players and parents, help us grow the game by letting your friends and relatives know about the WJGA. District 1 almost always has available spots in its subdistrict tournaments and is always in need of parent volunteers.

For new players and parents, Join the WJGA introduces you to membership requirements and the steps to join. If you have questions or need guidance, please don’t hesitate to reach out and contact me.

Again, welcome.

With your help, this year will be a successful, safe and competitive season for all.
