The Corena Green tournament is named in honor and memory of a WNHGA director who was an avid supporter of women’s golf. During her second term of office, as president in the late 1980’s, she began to promote the idea of junior golf for girls. Although, WNHGA had supported junior golf, it soon became apparent that girls were relegated to secondary consideration. Thus, the idea of a special tournament for girls only, funded by WNHGA, was born.

Corena’s sudden death in 1990, during her last year on the WNHGA Board, came as a shock to all who knew her. Her many friends throughout the WNHGA clubs wanted to honor her, so in consultation with her family, the WNHGA Corena Green Classic for Junior Girls golf tournament was born.

The success of this annual tournament would not be possible without the ongoing support from all of the WNHGA member clubs in the form of volunteers and donations. The money donated covers tee prizes, award trophies and advanced education gift certificates. This tournament is open to any junior girl, ages 8 to 17, who is sponsored by a WNHGA club. Neither the girl, nor her family, need to be a member of a WNHGA club, but she should have played some golf and have some basic knowledge of the game and rules.
