Golfers can obtain a Handicap Index by joining a MAGA member club
MAGA is comprised of clubs throughout the metropolitan St. Louis area, Central Illinois and Southern Illinois, and golfers who join a MAGA member private club are automatically members of the MAGA. Beyond private clubs, there are three easy ways to join MAGA area golfers who are already enjoying all the benefits of being a member of MAGA. Virtually every public and municipal golf course in the area has an organized MAGA club that is easy and inexpensive to join. Any member of an MAGA member club is entitled to all membership privileges.
Three Ways to Join MAGA:
1. At a Member Golf Course
As an alternative to a private club, you can join the MAGA through your local public golf facility. The MAGA has more than 75 member clubs that play at public golf courses. These clubs are usually inexpensive and are very simple to join; all you need to do is contact the golf staff at the course. For more information, visit your favorite public course or call our office for help in finding a course near you.
2. Club Without Real Estate
Do you play regularly with a group from your office, your neighborhood or your local golf league? It’s a perfect scenario for becoming a Type 2, or “club without real estate.” Organized groups who are not affiliated with a single golf facility can form their own club and join the MAGA. These clubs must meet the MAGA and USGA definition of a golf club. But getting started is easy and the MAGA welcomes inquiries about forming a club without real estate. For more information, contact the MAGA office, 314-567-MAGA.
