OGA History

As the Oregon Golf Association approaches our 75th Anniversary, we look back with fond memories of those who have been instrumental in assisting with the growth of golf in our area. Since 1924, the OGA has served member clubs and golfers in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Many of the individuals who were involved with association activities are mentioned in the Four Part History of the Oregon Golf Association written by retired Executive Director Dale Johnson. We greatly thank Dale for the many hours he took in researching, compiling and writing this history.
