About the APA

The MAPGA Assistant Professional Association (APA) is open to all assistants (A-6 and A-8) and associates in the Middle Atlantic Section. The goals of the Association are to provide education opportunities (specific to assistants’ career development), to build community involvement, and to create an environment that allows assistants to establish new relationships and enhance their professional development.

The APA also organizes a tournament program for its members. The tournament schedule consists of a variety of events and concludes with a Tour Championship and Independence Cup against the Philly PGA APA.

AHEAD MAPGA-APA Associate Scholarships

Recognizing that the cost of the PGA Professional Golf Management (PGM) program is a major concern, the APA and the MAPGA have worked together to develop a scholarship program to annually award those Associate assistants who finish at the top of each PGA PGM program level. The AHEAD MAPGA-APA Scholarships are awarded to the top four finishers at each level who are members of the APA and meet the following eligibility criteria:

1) Must be a registered member of the MAPGA Assistant Professional Association (APA)
2) Must participate in at least two (2) of the following by December 31st:

  • APA Tournament (must complete the round and turn in a scorecard)
  • APA Education Seminar
  • APA Meeting
  • Section or Chapter Membership Meeting
  • Section specific education seminars (MAPGA Teaching Summit, those adjacent to Section meetings)

***If more than 4 people from each level meet the criteria, the members that scored the highest on the tests will receive the scholarship.
