We could tell you it is a not for profit association that administers a lot of golf tournaments. The MGA did start in 1905 with that purpose. However, that is not the case anymore.
The MGA is a very important resource for golf clubs and private courses in the State. In return we offer them all the help we can give them. From rating the golf course, to a rules decision, to promoting club activities. The MGA is here for them.
The MGA stays very involved in the United States Golf Association and supports its services they provide for our Member Clubs. From the handicap system, to the tournament pairing program, Rules of Golf, to licensing golf clubs.
We provide our expertise and services to the Missouri State High School Activities Association. We visit grade schools to reach out to young golfers in Central Missouri.
The MGA is always trying to come up with ways to grow the game. How can we reach more young golfers? To those less fortunate? How do we reach out to wounded warriors? How can the MGA help disabled golfers?
You can reach the MGA at 573.636.8994
