Wilson Smith Sober Golf League

Where Golf & Recovery Come Together

Elevate Your Game and Your Life

Wilson Smith Golf League - A Unique Golfing Experience

The Wilson-Smith Golf League (WSGL) is a thriving community of people recovering from Alcohol and/or Substance Use Disorder who bond over their shared love for the game of golf.  Starting with 11 sober golfers and one Al-Anon member in the suburbs of Philadelphia in 2001, the Wilson-Smith Golf League of the Delaware Valley has over 130 active members and counting.  Blending the principles of recovery and the rules of golf, the WSGL has created a unique fellowship that greatly enhances the quality of their members’ lives.  Reach out today to learn more about our sober golf league as we expand our footprint throughout the country.

Our Mission

To support and promote addiction recovery for alcoholics, addicts, and/or their families through the structured participation in the game of golf.

Our Vision

To create a national network of sober golf leagues in municipalities across the United States, thereby creating a safe environment to participate and compete in the game of golf.

2 Leagues Is Only The Beginning...

Florida League

WSGL expanded to South Florida in 2023 and has a West and East Coast Division with almost 20 sober golfers participating.  Taking a page out of the LIV Golf format, an exciting and unique “winter season” of golf has been created.  Serving the South Florida golfing and sober communities, WSGL-SF is actively looking for additional golfers to join.

Del Val League

WSGL has been operating in the Greater Philadelphia (Delaware Valley) area for over 22 years.  The league has grown from 12 golfers to over 130.  In 2024 the WSGL will create a new division designed to attract sober publinks, casual, and avid golfers who cannot commit to a competitive schedule of 4 matches over the 5 month season.  In addition to our traditional competitive format, we will host one day tournaments, mix n’ match events at Bill W members clubs, Top Golf, and other social events.
