Greater Kalamazoo Golf Association

Kalamazoo has had a rich history in tournament golf hosting the Match Play (1929), Spring Medal (1957), Fall Medal (1971) and The Dan Parker Two Man Best Ball (1991). 

The GKGA was officially established early in the 90’s. Our mission is to foster competitive golf by making available Amateur Tournaments to golfers in the local region. 

Every year we hold between 5 to 6 scratch handicap tournaments at popular and prestigious Public and Private courses in South West Michigan.

If you’ve ever dreamt of improving your game and sharpening your skills, there is no better way than to compete. Our events are both fun and competitive. We bring in hundreds of players from around the region and beyond.
