About Us
First and Foremost, Us is You!
You are likely looking at this page because you have a passion for the game. You likely have a USGA Handicap Index issued through your club, group or course.  Proceeds from memberships, handicap service, tournaments, donations and partnerships keep our Association moving forward and allow us to collectively support the greater good!
Miami Valley Golf was founded in 1994 with the assistance from Tony Zirpoli and Jim Sweeney from the USGA and many committed amateur golfers from our area.  Our first president was Ron Wilson who served a very short time as the demands on the position required a person with more time, he was followed by Dr. Phil Hughes. Since Dr. Hughes term ended our presidents have been, David Novotny, Mike O'Bryan, Charlie Rinehart and now Doug Miller who starts his term in 2018.
We have two tax id's, one non-profit (31-147550) (501(c)4) and one charitable organization "Our Foundation" (31-1756691) (501(c)3).  You can look at our tax returns online using 990 finder and if you need additional information please let us know.  We also manage our ladies group the DDWGA who actually predates the MVGA be two years and the Miami Valley Masters formally the Dayton Seniors, which dates back to the 1940's.  For over a decade now all our groups have worked collectively to move our game forward.
