Since its founding in 1991, the MGA Foundation has impacted thousands of young people through Caddie Academies, GOLFWORKS, The First Tee of Metropolitan New York and Junior Competitions. Educational programs for clubs and members help fulfill our mission to help preserve the game's past and protect its future.

What We Do
Providing first class competitive experiences to young players has been a part of MGA tradition since 1912.
As a sport, golf teaches young people about honor, tradition and an appreciation for the environment.
Throughout the Metropolitan Area, hundreds of young men and women are experiencing golf first hand by becoming a caddie.
The First Tee of Metropolitan New York is part of a national junior golf initiative and was created in 2001 as a joint venture between the MGA Foundation and Metropolitan Section of the PGA.
