For more than a century, the MGA has been a steward of the amateur game in our state. What began in 1901 with seven member clubs and a goal to identify the best amateur player, today encompasses nearly 400 member clubs and 35 state championships and national qualifiers, plus many additional regional, high school/prep, collegiate and club competitions.
In addition to tournament volunteers and its Board of Directors, the MGA employs a year-round professional staff, seasonal and part-time staff including internships. While some staff are focused "inside the ropes" on tournament operations, much effort goes into for-the-good-of-the-game programs and initiatives outside of competition: the Rules of Amateur Status, Rules of Golf education, support of the USGA Handicap System, charitable support, player development outreach, media relations and member communications are just a few of the ways MGA serves the game for all golfers in Minnesota.
Below are the current opportunities open at the MGA.
Founded in 1901 with seven golf clubs, the Minnesota Golf Association’s membership has grown to 400 courses and nearly 83,000 individual members throughout the state. Our mission is to uphold and promote the game of golf and its values for all golfers in Minnesota.
