About Us

The Madison-Area Retired Golfer Association (MARGA) is a non-profit independent association of Madison-area retired men which conducts summer golf leagues on Madison city golf courses.  We have 7 morning leagues at all four Madison city golf courses (Glenway, Monona, Odana and Yahara Hills).  MARGA was started in 1978 by a group of retired Madison-area men who wanted to play golf with each other on a scheduled basis. We are still going strong!

MARGA features:

  • 9 & 18 Hole Leagues
  • No age limit -- even retired youngsters 55-60 can join
  • We welcome golfers of all skill levels from single digit handicaps on up
  • MARGA uses its own handicap system -- our weekly prizes are based on MARGA handicaps
  • Leagues play each week from late April/Early May for 16 weeks
  • End-of-season 9- and 18-hole organization-wide tournaments
  • Two additional Outings are held each year at area courses (see Announcements & Special Events)
  • End-of-season awards luncheon is held in late September
  • We offer lasting friendships wonderful golf and great exercise at a very reasonable price

Did you know that it is permissible for a player to have a flagstick attended for a stroke played from anywhere on the course (this is specifically stated in Rule 17-1), but the player also may attend the flagstick for himself. A player incurs no penalty if he holds the flagstick while it is in the hole with one hand and removes it after playing a stroke at his ball with a club in his other hand, provided the ball does not strike the flagstick.  See the new section "Common golf rules misconceptions".  Keep checking for more rules misconceptions.
