|Thank you for visiting the web site of the Michigan Amputee Golf Association, the oldest regional amputee association in the United States.
Established in 1955, the Michigan Amputee Golf Association has been conducting tournaments and encouraging participation for hundreds of amputee golfers in the Midwest. Even though a golfer may be disabled, he or she can still enjoy the camaraderie, competition, and enjoyment the great game of golf can provide. The MAGA is also a catalyst in introducing amputees to the game as well. This great game can be a valuable tool in building confidence and self-esteem, and probably most importantly, simply providing enjoyment to amputee golfers. The MAGA has been there for 58 years for all amputees who love the game or would like to be introduced to the game.
The MAGA hosts 3 events annually and participates in a fourth staged by students in the Professional Golf Management Program at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI.

In addition, first-time entrants in "The Michigan" State Tournament play for FREE! That's right, free if you have not previously played! It makes getting started easy!
The MAGA is very proud of amputee participation in our 2 major fund raising events annually. The first, the Amputee/Guest Scramble is scheduled the Friday prior to the State Tournament. A fun, relaxing day of golf with your friends and family, followed by great hors d'oeuvres and beverages. A nice way to play a practice round.
Our premiere fund raising event is the "John S Carton Challenge 100" Charity Golf Classic in August. This handicap-formatted scramble pairs an amputee with four non-amputees (we call 'em "normies"). All participants receive an exclusive MAGA logo tee gift, lunch and hors d'oeuvres with beverages to conclude the day. Prizes are provided by some of the great "golf destination" courses in Michigan.
Join us for some great golf competition and camaraderie with fellow amputees. Questions? Call Dick Jeremias (MAGA Secretary/Treasurer) at 586-777-5451. You may also email Dick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
