IMPORTANT: 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 your child has registered before, you can skip this step. To register in the MSGA Tournament Directory, click here to set up your child’s account. Be sure to add your child’s GHIN#, if he or she has one. We recommend using your child’s GHIN login/password so that it’s easy to remember. If your child doesn’t have a GHIN# (MSGA membership), you must still register him or her in the directory. If you need help, please contact the MSGA at support@msgagolf.org or 1-800-628-3752, ext 1, or for video tutorials, click here.
