MMJGA - Helping kids stay on courseOur History

The Minnesota Minority Junior Golf Association (MMJGA) began in 1987 when Minneapolis attorney F. Clayton Tyler invited a few friends to a golf tournament to support minority junior golf. Creating opportunities through the game of golf proved to be a powerful concept, and MMJGA, now a registered charitable organization, was formed.

In 1999, the program took shape as a caddie program at the public golf courses in Minneapolis. Since 2006, the MMJGA has partnered exclusively with private golf courses to place participants in the best caddie jobs in the Twin Cities. Each year MMJGA teaches over 50 young people about the game of golf and more importantly, how to caddie.

The MMJGA Executive Committee and Board of Directors oversee MMJGA programs. Our committee and board members are united by a love of golf, and a deep commitment to disadvantaged youth.
