2015 Scholarship Winners
The MWGA Foundation has had 63 scholarship winners over the past 17 years. To date, we have awarded $583,000 to these highly motivated young women throughout the state.
The four winners of this year's strong academic class had GPAs of 4.0. ACTs that ranged from 27-34 and golfed at least four years on their high school teams. Two will continue on to play college golf.
The scholarship is totally dependent on MWGA Club donations. We are an all-volunteer organization with very little overhead. That means nearly all of your donation goes directly to a scholarship. Please consider a donation this year to reward these highly motivated young women. Donations can be sent to the MWGA office at 6550 York Ave. South, Suite 211, Edina, MN 55435. Please make checks payable to the MWGA Scholarship Foundation.
Thank you for your generosity.

MWGA & MWPGA & MGA Merger Discussions
The MWGA leadership has been in discussions with the MGA and the MWPGA for the past two years to discuss the potential of merging the operations together under the umbrella of the MGA. The idea of merging operations has been discussed for decades. There are many advantages of having one golf association in the state that runs all of the state championships.
On June 10th about 80 people gathered at a meeting to go through the process to date and to get a sense of how this proposal might impact women's golf in Minnesota. Attendees included board members of all three organizations, past presidents of the MWGA and MWPGA, club liaisons, and active women golfers. The attendees were attentive, asked great questions and the discussion was positive and respectful. It made me proud to be a part of Minnesota Women's golf.
The MGA presented a slide presentation and is attached here. Please review it.
We would very much appreciate your questions, suggestions and feedback. If we get questions of a general nature, we will post answers on the website. Please send your comments to:
