Buffalo Women's Golf Club
The Buffalo Women’s Golf Club, which was formed in 2006, originally started as the Western New York Chapter of the Executive Women’s Golf Association (“EWGA”), a national organization. In 1980, the local chapter of the EWGA was formed to provide a networking club for women who golfed. Over time, the requirements of the national organization conflicted with the desires of the local members, resulting in the formation of the Buffalo Women’s Golf Club (“BWGC”).
BWGC is a non-real estate golf club. It targets women who wish to play golf, do not have a desire to join a private club and are limited in the amount of time they have to play golf. BWGC offers six leagues at three excellent public golf courses to play nine holes of golf on four-week nights. The courses played regularly are Arrowhead Golf Course, Akron, NY; Diamond Hawk Country Club, Cheektowaga, NY; and The Links at Ivy Ridge, Akron, NY. All courses play late afternoon or early evening to accommodate women who work or have young children. "The club offers both competitive and non-competitive league choices for golfers of all skill levels"
Nothing Stops Us!
The golf club had their first tournament of the season at Byrncliff Golf Resort on Saturday, June 13, 2020. The 34 players didn't let the COVID 19 Pandemic stop us from being outside enjoying the fresh air and a beautiful golf course. You could not ask for better weather, full sunshine and not a cloud in the sky. Around the course you could hear laughter on each hole and beautiful well kept greens. Now we know why they have been voted the "Best Golf Course" in WNY for two years.

In addition, to the goodie bags we had one large beer basket raffle, inside the basket was speciality beers, munchies, buffalo bottle opener and one of the new BWGC "Yeti" tumblers.
