MGA Educational Seminars & Workshops
***** In-Person Seminars will not be conducted in 2021 due to Covid-19 ******
As part of its mission, the MGA is responsible for educating the golf industry in many arenas - Handicapping, the Rules of Golf, Tournament Operations and Volunteering to name a few. To meet this responsibility, the MGA offers classes for industry professionals, club officials, players, volunteers and the general public. These classes range from the very basic, introductory level classes up to in-depth, multi-day programs designed for individuals with high skill level.
If you are interested in learning more information about some of these topics, please check out our 2021 Education Programs.

HandicappingAt this time, the MGA has suspended live seminar training as a result of Covid-19. Please view the online WHS System Seminar to learn more about the changes to the Handicap System.
If you have not done so already, the USGA requires one representative from each golf club to complete an educational component covering the new Rules of Handicapping and to pass the standardized quiz provided by the USGA.

For additional Rules Education materials and quizzes, we encourage you to use the USGA and R&A websites for all of the Rules of Golf information you should and need to know.
