The Pacific Northwest Golf Association (PNGA) was founded on February 4, 1899. It is a 501c3 charitable, international amateur golf association dedicated to preserving the true spirit of the game of golf and promoting activities beneficial to golfers in the Pacific Northwest region of North America.
The PNGA is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of men and women, from private and public golf clubs, representing every geographic region of the Northwest. These Directors are elected by volunteer Club Representatives who are appointed by their clubs to be liaisons to the Association.
The PNGA employs a full-time staff of 14, headed by a CEO/Executive Director, with offices located in Federal Way, Washington. Under the direction of the Board of Directors and in conjunction with a number of standing committees, the staff administers the day-to-day affairs of the Association.
PNGA territory is broken down into five zones, which are: Zone 1 – Oregon; Zone 2 – Eastern Washington; Zone 3 – Western Washington and Alaska; Zone 4 British Columbia and Alberta; and Zone 5: Idaho and Montana. There are approximately 175,000 individuals at over 650 PNGA member golf clubs.
The original purpose of the PNGA was to conduct a regional amateur championship. For over 114 years, the Association has been a pioneer in developing competitions and services and its mission has grown and evolved. Today, the PNGA remains committed to being a truly “regional” organization providing benefits and services to its members and member clubs throughout the Northwest.
