|Miami Valley Golf|
Through the decades there has been golf organizations dating back to the late teens, however, for cultural and economic reasons an organization never stayed together. Discussions of reformation begin at Miami Valley Golf Club in 1994, and with the resources provided by the USGA and a group of committed volunteers Miami Valley Golf was formed.
Twenty Five Years later we have grown and matured into the Primary Caretakers of the Amateur Game in the Miami Valley, Stewarding the Dayton District Women's, Miami Valley Masters and United States Golf Association Events, Championships and Qualifiers while reestablishing and starting a number of events as well.
This year the MVGA's Events start on May 6th as the Spring Better Ball is held at Walnut Grove, then we run the Ohio Junior World on May 28th followed by the 100th Anniversary of our Area's Amateur Championship "The Metropolitan" back where it all began in 1919 at Dayton CC from July 25th-28th. We follow that up with the Mercedes Benz Dealer Championship at Moraine on August 12, followed by the Sr & Mid Amateur Championship at Springfield CC September 3rd & 4th. We then contest the Annual Miami Valley Team Invitational at Sycamore Creek on Thursday, September 26th, followed by select group of players representing the MVGA in the biannual Ohio Intra-State Matches at Lima Shawnee CC, October 3rd & 4th before we end the Tournament Season with our annual variable best ball Celebration at Dayton CC on Monday, October 7th.
Along the way our volunteer team of course raters will rate seven golf courses, the 2nd year of the Inter-Club Matches will take place and we will provide many educational seminars at area facilities throughout the off season, primarily on the Modernized Rules that go into effect in 2019.
All of these MVGA Programs, as well as DDWGA, Masters Events & USGA Course Ratings, Championship Qualifiers and Game Stewardship is not possible without our over eight thousand members. We encourage you to spread the word about golf and how life enhancing our game is for not just our generation but those to come.
All the best this season !
