Association season opening statistics

As the Association begins the 2014 golf season, we thought the following statistics from the 2013 season would be of some interest.

The WPGA’s membership at the end of 2013 was 27,588. We have been around this number for five years. The highest ever for the Association was around 31,500 in 2000. This includes about 22,000 men and 6,000 women, 80% men and 20% women.

The average index for men is 13.4, and for women it’s 25.9. These numbers are fairly typical throughout the country among state and regional golf associations like ours.

Men posted 407,627 scores, an average of 18.7 scores per golfer, while women posted 87,908 scores for an average of 15.3 scores.
