The Manchester and District Golf Alliance is the largest of its kind in the country consisting of over a 100 golf clubs from the Manchester area.
It was formed in 1924, with two main aims. Firstly, to provide additional income throughout the winter months for Professional golfers, but primarily to forge 'Friendship Through Golf'. Our motto "Friendship Through Golf" forms the basis of everything that we do.
We are a non profit making organisation with all our revenue being returned to golfers as prizes. Whilst providing an income for professional golfers MDGA has expanded over the years to include amateur golfers and inter club knockout competitions. The Dunham Forest Trophy is our most prestigious event, however the competitions also include The City Glass Mens Foursomes, The Archie Preston Mixed Knockout, Seniors Team Knockout and The BMW Junior Team Knockout..
Any member of a golf club that is affiliated to the Manchester & District Golf Alliance is eligible to play in the weekly MDGA competitions which take place each Wednesday from September to December and February to May.
The Wednesday competition is in fact three competitions in one. There is an individual competition for the professionals as well as a pro/am and an am/am competition. We also have a number of 4 man team competitions.
The events are held on a different course each week and are open to any member from the affiliated clubs. Check out the fixture list on the Winter Competitions tab to view the fixtures and also to book on-line. If preferred, bookings can also be made by contacting the Secretary at email@example.com.
