MAGA was the brain child of Mr. Nash Fernandez, who along with Danny Jimenez, Joe Gonzales, Jess Renteria, Al Gamboa and ex L.A. Rams punter, Danny Villanueva, put their signatures on the papers of incorporation and MAGA was born.
The first chapter was incorporated in Fresno, on August 1963. This was the nucleus for chapters that are now available to serve their respective members and communities.
MAGA is the largest Hispanic golf association in the State of California today with chapters located throughout the state. MAGA is administered by an executive board which is made up of state elected officers. The local chapters run themselves and report their activities to their respective councils who , in turn, report to the executive board which meets quarterly. Elections for state officers are held on the last quarterly meeting of the year.
MAGA is actively involved in the promotion, creation of interest, practice of, and enjoyment of golf for it’s members, junior members and guests. MAGA is always ready to help with scholarships to needy students, and in our communities to promote the enjoyment of golf.
