Casual Golf Day Information

These days allow members and friends to participate in WPGA organized non-competitive golf days. We wish to introduce the Association to more golfers, who may not play in WPGA championships. These days are a change for golfers of various skills to have a good time with friends at a WPGA Member Club that they may not normally get a chance to play.

Events are open to all golfers, both men and women, regardless of skill level, who want to play golf for fun at a reasonable rate. No Handicap Index is required.

Players may enter with an entry form or online. Please note – if you wish to apply online you will need an account. If you have registered for any of the Association’s championships in the past two years you will use your existing username and password, and can enroll by clicking here.

New Castle Country Club

Close to PA Route 60, New Castle also claims a famous architect, A. W. Tillinghast, who has Baltusrol, Winged Foot, and local courses such as Sunnehanna to his credit. The #11 green is one of the most well known in the area, as is the par-five 5th hole. The course is the annual site of the Tri-State Open, and has hosted numerous WPGA competitions, including USGA qualifying rounds. The tudor clubhouse is a classic.

Green Oaks Country Club

In Verona, this club’s long history may have the hand of Donald Ross in its design. The ninth, a par-four of 440 yards, is one of the best par fours in the area. The finish is unique—three long par-threes in a four hole stretch, 14-17. The course has hosted numerous WPGA competitions and gatherings over the years.
