The Mississippi Golf Association was officially chartered by a constitution and by-laws in June of 1925. Over the past 80 years the association has grown from one meeting a year to host a State Amateur Championship to an organization dedicated to providing service to every golf course and golfer in the state of Mississippi.
Over time the MGA has built and maintained strong working relationships with the USGA, the PGA of America, the Women’s Mississippi Golf Association and other state, regional and local golf associations to promote the game of golf.
The Mississippi Golf Association stands as the governing body for amateur golf in the state, looked upon to provide the leadership necessary to uphold the traditions and values of the game and to ensure its future growth.
The Mississippi Golf Association now conducts 9 state championships, provides an ever-growing handicap service to its member courses, and has taken the lead in promoting the future growth of the game through our junior golf program.
