Since its founding in 1991, the MGA Foundation has impacted thousands of young people throughout the Met Area by providing access to developmental programs both on and off the golf course. The MGAF's initiatives include the GOLFWORKS student-intern program, junior competitions and youth golf access, caddie initiatives includuing annual Caddie Academies, and support of local and national programs to fulfill the mission to help preserve the game's past and protect its future.
Throughout the Metropolitan area, hundreds of young men and women are experiencing golf first hand by becoming a caddie. Responsibility, hard work, exercise and camaraderie are all skills that a caddie will experience throughout a summer. Not only are the immediate financial benefits important but caddies build relationships with employers and club members that become part of a long lasting professional network.
