Golf is a sport that has long been associated with tradition, exclusivity, and a lack of diversity. For many years, golf courses were considered exclusive enclaves reserved only for wealthy white men, shutting out players of color and other minority groups. However, a new movement is emerging that seeks to change the face of golf and make the sport more inclusive and accessible to everyone. This movement is led by the Minority Golf Association. We are dedicated to promoting diversity and linking golfers of color globally. Through our efforts, we are not only breaking down barriers but also injecting new energy and excitement into the game of golf.
Joining the MGA offers a range of benefits for golfers of all levels. Here are just a few of the advantages of joining:
• Access to resources and opportunities: We offer members access to valuable resources and opportunities, such as golf clinics, coaching, equipment, and networking events. This can help golfers of color develop their skills, build their confidence, and advance their careers in the sport.
• Community and support: Being part of the MGA means being part of a supportive and inclusive community of fellow golfers of color who share your passion for the game. This can provide a sense of belonging and connection that is often lacking for minority golfers in traditional golf clubs.
• Advocacy and representation: MGA advocates for diversity and inclusion in the sport of golf. By joining, members can help to promote positive change and create a more equitable and welcoming environment for all golfers.
• Global connections: As the #1 golf association for people of color globally, we can provide opportunities for golfers to connect with and learn from players from diverse cultural backgrounds, expanding their understanding of the game and fostering friendships and partnerships that can last a lifetime.
