Allied Association of the MGA


The Long Island Golf Association is a non-profit organization of 74 private and public clubs, which conducts fifteen championships for its members and fields a team of the Island’s best amateurs to compete annually in the Stoddard Trophy against teams from New Jersey, Westchester and Connecticut.


Beyond the tournament and charitable work with the Long Island Caddie Scholarship Fund, the Association also serves as an information resource for its member clubs. Via a series of newsletters and a once-a-year educational forum for club presidents, it endeavors to provide its constituents with a wide range of pertinent information affecting golf, golfers and golf clubs. In cooperation with the United States Golf Association and the Audubon Society of New York, the LIGA works with its members on a variety of projects related to environmental issues.
