Providing first class competitive experiences to young players has been a part of MGA tradition since 1912. Young players in the Met Area have a wide range of playing opportunities to test their skills, make new friends and enjoy the experience of first class competitions. The MGA Foundation annually conducts three outstanding events.
Met Junior Championship Sponsored by MetLife – The nation’s oldest Junior Championship was founded in 1912 by Leighton Calkins, a former member of the MGA and USGA Executive Committees. Over the ensuing years, the Met Junior has produced winners who have gone on to outstanding achievements on both the regional and national levels. The 100th playing of the Met Junior Championship will take place at Plainfield Country Club. | 2016 Recap
