About Metropolitan Golf Association

The Metropolitan Golf Association (MGA), founded in 1897, is one of the nation’s oldest, largest, and most prestigious amateur golf associations, serving more than 500 member clubs and 130,000 golfers in the greater Metropolitan New York Area.

The MGA is a not-for-profit organization that offers a wide range of core services such as: handicapping, course rating, an award-winning magazine publication (The Met Golfer), and conducts some of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious regional championships. The charitable arm of the Association, the MGA Foundation, reaches juniors throughout the Met Area and provides life-changing opportunities through the game of golf.  The MGA is an Allied Golf Association of the USGA and promotes the best interest of the game of golf. 

At the MGA, we believe that when people feel respected and included, they can be more creative, innovative, and successful. While golf and the MGA have more work to do to advance diversity and inclusion, we’re passionate about moving our company and sport forward.

“The entire MGA team was great to work with. I was able to work with two other Ithaca students in tournament management and tournament operation. Even though there are early mornings and long nights, the experience was amazing and there is endless amounts of learning. ”
