What we're about
Calgary MGA (Mediocre Golf Association) Accepting New Members!
Have you played golf for a while, but still suck at it? So do we, but that doesn't stop us from putting on 8 awesome tournaments a year!
We are the local chapter of the Mediocre Golf Association, a worldwide phenomenon that nobody has heard of. Seriously though, the MGA has over 50 chapters worldwide, on three continents and hold a World Championship each year in Las Vegas.
We're looking to add a few quality members who are interested in playing some golf, drinking some beer and winning some of the most interesting trophies you've ever seen. Also up for grabs are big checks worth over $1.56... dollars and a shot at a World Title!
Take a look at MGAtour.com to see what it's all about. If you get it, then we'd like to hear from you. If you're not sure what the hell is going on, then maybe that "other Meetup group" might be better for you.
A Brief History
The MGA was founded in San Francisco in 2006 by Jon "Lucky Kick" Morley and "Straight" Willie Dills. The Bastards was our first and only event in 2006. It had four entrants and was won by "Lucky Kick" himself. In 2007 and 2008, the MGA ran multi-tournament seasons in the bay area, before launching our first expansion chapter in Seattle in March of 2009. From there the MGA exploded world-wide, based solely on word of mouth and a strict adherance to our no-douche policy. We hope to continue that growth year after year, as we build the world's biggest kinda-secret network of people you'd actually want to golf with.
MGA Mission Statement
The Mediocre Golf Association is the official golf association for the other guys. Our goal is to unite golfers all over the world and allow them to play the game of golf as it was intended. Badly. The MGA does not discriminate with handicaps; it encourages players of all skill levels, except those with skill levels higher then ours. If you are a good golfer, move along, there's nothing for you to see here. If you are everyone else on the planet, you've found your people. Welcome. Enjoy your stay and remember that golf is fun, especially when you're mediocre.
Making fun of people who are better than us since 2006,
