In 1961, the MGA developed a junior program and since that time, the program has grown dramatically. More than 900 juniors annually compete in the MGA junior program throughout the state. MGA member clubs have been very supportive in this venture with approximately 150 golf courses participating regularly. Many courses and clubs allow juniors within their neighborhoods or city to compete without any membership requirements.
Each of the courses participating in the MGA junior program has a team representing it in district play. A district is composed of twelve to sixteen courses. A different course hosts a district event each week, and district play lasts four weeks. Teams can vary in size each week. The team totals are taken from the three lowest out of four scores from the boys (Open Division) and two lowest out of four by the girls. Once district play has been completed, the top two girls' and boys' teams in each district, and the top individual not on the advancing teams advance to the MGA Junior Team Championship.
The Junior Team Championship is a two-day, 36-hole event with 180 participants, 90 boys and 90 girls. The Championship is held throughout the state at some of the best courses.
Entries are open to amateur golfers:
- Who are currently Associate Members of the MGA at the club from which they are playing, OR a permanent resident of Minnesota,
- Who must NOT have reached their 19th birthday on or before the first day of the Championship.
All entries are subject to rejection at any time by the MGA Tournament Committee.
