Golfing in Malaysia

Malaysian Ladies Golf Association

Persatuan Golf Wanita Malaysia or more commonly known as Malaysian Ladies Golf Association (MALGA) was incepted on March 15, 1983 largely thanks to hard work and untimely effort from the late Mary Williams.

Besides that, another three ladies have also contributed and helped the formation of MALGA – Tunku Ampuan from Negeri Sembilan, Tunku Tun Maimunah Sultan Ismail and Tan Siew Lay. Since golf was gaining popularity back in 1980s, even Tan Sri Datuk Abdul Hamid, President of Malaysian Golf Association (MGA) showed support and encouragement with the establishment of MALGA.

Promoting Women Golfers in Malaysia

MGA provided assistance and looked after MALGA’s interest to increase confidence among women who are involved in golf. Ten years after it was established, Sports Commissioner of Malaysia, Ministry of Youth and Sports took over MALGA.

With an untimely effort, today, MALGA grew into one of the most prominent organization that caters to women who are interested in golf. MALGA is opened to ladies from all walks of life. There are a total of five categories of memberships namely founder, life, ordinary, junior and honorary.
