WHAT DOES THE SIGA DO?
Dating back to 1924, our Directors have devoted their time and effort to advance the great game of golf throughout Southern Illinois. With the help of its Member Clubs, the SIGA works to keep the game great by providing the following services.
The Southern Illinois Golf Association’s Advisory Committee has been established to assist the Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association (MAGA), to which it is an affiliate organization in the following: SIGA Championships, SIGA Junior Golf Tour, SIGA Hall of Fame Nominations, SIGA Player of the Year and to give input to MAGA Executive Director and Executive Board.
It is the intent of the SIGA Advisory Committee to work with MAGA to facilitate and promote amateur golf in Southern Illinois, not limited to the above.
The intent of the Committee would be to have a Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson and three (3) additional members from SIGA Member Clubs.
The committee would meet periodically during the year to achieve the SIGA mission:
"To foster, promote and advance the interest and true spirit of the Game of Golf."
MAGA conducts two (2) of the long-standing SIGA championships, the SIGA Championship and Tony Stevens Cup Matches.
