The Minnesota Golf Association
Founded in 1901 with only seven golf clubs, the Minnesota Golf Association's membership has grown to more than 400 clubs and 66,000 individual members throughout the state. Our mission is to uphold and promote the game of golf and its values for all golfers in Minnesota.
During the last one hundred years, the MGA has held true to its beliefs and greatly enhanced the golfers, the courses and the game itself. During the early years, the MGA's primary function was to conduct the golf championships within the state. However, in the last several decades, the MGA has expanded its scope to include administering the USGA Handicap System for Minnesota, publishing the Minnesota Golfer magazine four times a year, measuring and rating the golf courses in Minnesota, monitoring the state legislature to make sure the best interests of golf are served and supporting the game golf in general.
