The Missouri Golf Association (MGA) announces its 2017 Championship Schedule! The MGA will conduct 16 Championships for women, men, boys and girls and we will offer 18 Senior Series one-day events for men over 50. The season will begin again with the Porto Cima 4 Ball on April 22-23. The impressive 2017 Schedule is highlighted by the 110th Missouri Amateur Championship (June 19-25) at St Joseph Country Club, in St Joseph MO and the 79th Missouri Women’s Amateur Championship being held at Algonquin Country Club in St Louis, MO (July 9-12). This will be the first time the Missouri Golf Association will run the Women’s Amateur Championship due to the MWGA/MGA merger that went into effect January 1, 2017.
We are excited about our 2017 MGA Championship schedule and the quality venues we can provide our members to play. The 2017 schedule showcases facilities across the state of Missouri who make a conscientious effort to give back to the game by hosting our Championships. We sincerely appreciate their support and are looking forward to a fun and competitive 2017 Season at these excellent golf courses! You will also see that the MGA has added a couple more events to its schedule with the addition of a Women’s 4 Ball Championship and also a Couples Scramble. We are excited about these events and are looking to get more golfers involved around the State.
We are also excited to announce, that you will see in the next week, a brand new look and feel to the MGA website. We are currently still developing that site so as soon as we can get it LIVE it will have all the CURRENT information about all the events. The new site will incorporate all of the opportunities that we offer to ALL players of all ages and will highlight the one-of-a-kind Ken Lanning Golf Center developed by the Missouri Junior Golf Foundation.
