The Women’s Golf Association of Massachusetts has been in place since 1900 promoting interest in women’s golf. Ould Newbury Ladies’ League participates in two WGAM sponsored events: Spring Cup and Fall Cup. Membership in WGAM is encouraged as numerous events throughout the season are open to WGAM members providing the opportunity to compete at a variety of courses.
These matches, which are played in April and May, promote friendly competition with other area clubs and encourage the development of women’s amateur golf in Massachusetts. To play in the Spring Cup you must be a member of the WGAM, Ould Newbury and the ONGC Ladies League, and have a handicap index of 36 or lower.
In 2015, there were 26 "cups" whcih are determined based on overall team handicap. Ould Newbury fielded two teams for Spring Cup 2015.

The ONGC Ladies League is participating in the Fall Cup in order to provide more opportunities to compete with other clubs. Where the Spring Cup is played by the same team from the club every week, Fall Cup can send a different team for each match. Matches consist of teams of six playing in pairs in a better ball format. Participants must be an ONGC (or Freedom Pass) member, belong to the WGAM, and have a handicap of 36 or lower.
