We Black We Golf (WBWG) is a social organization that uses the game of golf to improve personal and professional development through networking and philanthropy. WBWG provides training to those interested in learning the game of golf the right way. WBWG promotes healthy living by encouraging our members and supporters to remain active, to visit your primary physician regularly, and most importantly to play Golf!
WBWG is open to all races, genders, and protected classes of people. We are committed to ensuring that all people have an opportunity to be exposed to this wonderful game. The name We Black We Golf originally was a response by one of our founders who was out playing golf. He was looked at suspiciously by some other golfers, and his response was "Yes, We Black, and We Golf!" Hence the name We Black We Golf! Follow us on our FB group WeBlackWeGolf, or on our website WeBlackWeGolf.org.
We will be posting various events and updates in the coming weeks and look forward to your support. Don't let this season pass you by without hitting the links. Golf is an amazing sport that can be played over a lifetime, and a great way to network and market your business and yourself.
