Golf Programs

MacGregor Downs has golf experiences for men and women, juniors, and seniors.

MGA—Men's Golf Association

The Men’s Golf Association is open to all male golf members and provides an additional level of competition throughout the golf season. Competitions with varying formats are regularly scheduled and Pro Shop credits are awarded to the winners. The MGA awards a Player of the Year at the conclusion of golf season. 

SMGA—Senior Men's Golf Association

The Senior Men’s Golf Association is available for all male golf members who are at least 50 years old. The Senior Men’s Golf Association participates in the Capital Area Senior Men’s Golf Association (CASMGA) and in interclub events with other clubs in the Five-County Senior Men’s Golf Association. In addition, there are season-long handicap improvement competitions, as well as a Senior Club Championship and Senior Tartan Tournament.

LGA—Ladies Golf Association

The Ladies Golf Association is a great opportunity for all female golf members to get together for events, both competitive and social. Ladies can play in 9- or 18-hole groups, depending on their skill and interest levels. Various events throughout the season include shotgun tournaments, clinics, member-guest events, as well as interclubs. Prizes awarded at the end of the season include Player of the Year, Most Improved, and more.
