Men’s Golf Association
The Highlands MGA (Men’s Golf Association) was founded by a handful of members over 20 years ago with the expressed intent of forming a lasting organization dedicated to promoting the game of golf here at The Highlands as well as the RVA region. The organization has evolved over the last decade and has grown to over 100 members, with handicaps that range from the single digit to over 30. The Highlands MGA is open to golfers of all abilities. Our events and functions are designed to make all Golf Club at The Highlands’ members feel welcome. When you sign up in the Golf Shop for MGA play, you never know who you will be playing with. As a new member, it is the ideal way to get to know the entire membership.
The MGA organizes a number of golfing events throughout the year. These can range from simple weekend stroke play matches to two & four man team events with a variety of different formats. These weekend events typically involve up to 40 players. We also organize a few marquee events during the year.

A Ryder Cup style team event. This fantastic four day event begins with as election/team announcement party, two days of team golf followed by one day of individual matches, and plenty of food and drink in between..
The Highlands MGA supports two notable charities, the VCU Massey Cancer Center and The Families of the Wounded Fund. This support is in the form of fundraising for charitable donations, as well as volunteering at events that support these two extremely worthy charities. We also support the Club’s growing youth golf programs.
