The Metropolitan Golf Association was founded in 1897 and is one of the nation’s oldest and largest amateur golf associations representing more than 500 clubs in the tri-state Metropolitan Area. Through a network of more than 300 volunteers, and a full-time staff operating out of its Golf Central headquarters in Elmsford, N.Y., the Association fulfills its role as a true non-profit service organization. Through a variety of unique, relevant, and innovative services for member clubs and area golfers, the MGA has established itself as a leader among local and national golf organizations.

MGA Foundation

The MGA’s charitable foundation was established in 1991 to “build a foundation for the future of golf” through innovative programs that reach out to young people from all cultures and economic backgrounds. Through The First Tee of Metropolitan New York, GOLFWORKS internships, junior clinics, caddie academies and junior tournaments, the MGA Foundation provides opportunities for youngsters to experience golf and integrate the game into their lives. The MGA Foundation also conducts regular seminars to provide club leaders and operators with valuable skills and information.


Quaker Ridge Golf Club

The par-70, 7,008-yard A.W. Tillinghast design – often called “Tillie’s Treasure” – is frequently mentioned when accomplished golfers are asked to name the best course in the Metropolitan New York area. Known for its powerful par 4s, the course stretches along a creek and hillsides and hosts a historic Tudor-style clubhouse. The golf course continues to stand the test of time. During the 1974 U.S. Open at Winged Foot, Jack Nicklaus, was asked whether he thought that Winged Foot was the greatest course in the world. Nicklaus replied: "That may be, but there is quite a golf course down the street." Two-time PGA Champion Paul Runyon, who played the 1936 Metropolitan Open at Quaker, described Quaker Ridge as, "the greatest golf course in the world." The 1997 Walker Cup marked the second "major" golf competition hosted by Quaker Ridge. The first was the 1936 Metropolitan Open. In 2018 Quaker Ridge Golf Club will partner with the Metropolitan Golf Association Foundation to bring the 2018 Curtis Cup Match to the New York metropolitan area.
