PLEASE NOTE: Participants must first register in the MSGA Tournament Directory to play in any MSGA event. This is a one-time registration, and is for the JUNIOR who is playing, NOT the parent who is applying on behalf of the junior. Each child needs to register separately. If you did this last year, you can skip this step. After registering, you can log in and apply for a specific event. To register, USE THIS LINK, then “Click Here to Register”, to set up your child’s account. If you don’t know your child’s GHIN®#, click here. If your child doesn’t have a GHIN®# (MSGA membership), you must still register him/her in the directory. If you need help, please contact the MSGA at support@msgagolf.org or 1-800-628-3752, ext 1.
