Start an MGA chapter in your town!
So you think the MGA is amazing. We understand. You want to play but there isn't a chapter in your town. Not a problem.
You can become a chapter leader and score a free Lifetime Membership! All you really need is a couple friends to get things started and it will grow like a rash below the belt from there.
Role of a Chapter Leader
The chapter leaders are the most critical people in the MGA. They are the ones who truly "get" what the MGA is about and they help spread the MGA culture; all while delivering professional-ish tournament experiences for the Medios in their city. Strangely enough, a mediocre chapter leader in the mediocre golf association doesn't work out as well as you'd think.
Their role is also important in building excitement for the next tournament with good follow-up by getting pictures and stories up on the website immediately after each tournament. Personal recognition for the members that played is key in keeping and adding members. Everyone likes to see their name in lights, even if it's only written by one of their illiterate friends.
Responsibilities of the Chapter Leader
- Recruit people for your tournaments
- Designate a No. 2 to assist you with pictures and scoring
- Find golf courses and set up 8 tournaments a year
- Get trophy pack from MGA headquarters and bring the awards to the golf course
- Sign people in and collect their money
- Manage scoring and hand out prizes
- Get pictures and/or video for each event
- Write tournament summary article and post pictures (within one day or two of the tournament)
Benefits of being a Chapter Leader
- You're infinitely cooler for bringing this to town.
- No longer have to be ashamed to tell people you golf.
- God-like status amongst your friends.
- Something to look forward to / reason to live.
