The Ocean State Women’s Golf Association was founded in 1995 by Trudy Dufault and Nathalie A. Price, two friends who shared success on the golf course.
Their purpose was to promote friendly but competitive golf among all women, regardless of handicap, in the state of Rhode Island. Their intentions were to bring together women from both the private and public sectors to establish a true Women’s State Amateur Championship and to be recognized by the USGA as the host association for all state level events.
To fulfill their mission, a junior program and a scholarship fund were established for deserving young lady golfers to provide opportunities for growth and achievement.
OSWGA members will be afforded the opportunity to play on some of the finest golf courses available while belonging to an association which will be recognized by all for its integrity and equality.
