Minnesota Golf Association In 1961 the MGA developed a junior program, and since that time, the program has grown dramatically with the support of MGA member clubs. More than 900 juniors now compete in the MGA junior tournaments annually around the state. MGA member clubs have been very supportive in this venture. In fact, approximately 150 golf courses around the state participate regularly in the junior program and many allow juniors within their neighborhoods or city to compete without any membership requirements.
