The Trans-Mississippi Golf Association is one of the oldest and most prestigious golf organizations in the United States. Established in 1901, the Trans-Mississippi is composed of over 200 member clubs located throughout the country. The Association is governed by a board of independent directors and is headquartered in Dallas, TX.
Our mission is to:
- Promote and advance the true spirit of amateur golf by cultivating fellowship, harmony, friendly competition and cooperation among members of the association.
- Conduct four annual tournaments – the Trans-Mississippi Amateur, a summer competition inaugurated in 1901, the Trans-Mississippi Senior & Mid-Master Championship which began in 2000, the Trans-Mississippi Four-Ball which began in 1981 and the Trans-Mississippi Junior-Senior which was added to the schedule in 2021. All four championships rotate annually among the nation’s finest golf courses.
- Cultivate and promote our Turf Scholarship Fund, which provides interns to our member clubs agronomy staff. These internships provide a hands on learning experience for students preparing to enter the golf course agronomy field at some of the countries best facilities with top-flight superintendents. Clubs gain the benefit of additional assistance and teaching potential new staff with funding provided by the Trans-Mississippi Turf Scholarship Fund.
