The Mexican American Golf Association (MAGA) was founded by Nash Fernandez in the late 1950's to fulfill the needs of Mexican American golfers in central California. With the help of his friend Nick Negrete, MAGA spread to Orange and Los Angeles Counties by the 1960’s. There are nine chapters now: Carlsbad, Gardena, Los Angeles, Orange County, Ontario, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Vista.
We are the Los Angeles Chapter and proud to be part of this organization.
There are currently ten chapters with approximately 800 total members. Each Chapter operates independently through its own elected and appointed officers in conducting its golf and social activities. The Association provides general guidance and direction through the Association by-laws and quarterly meetings of the Executive Committee and Chapter delegates. Members may participate in any other Chapter's tournaments by making arrangements with the respective tournament director. Membership in any of the individual Chapters includes the establishment of a handicap through either the Public Links Golf Association or the Southern California Golf Association, as determined by the Chapter.
