The Monterey Bay Seniors Golf Association (MBSGA) is a non-profit organization formed to create and develop good fellowship among senior golfers.


The MBSGA was started in 1964 over a cup of coffee when Larry Hall, one of the original members, suggested that each member of the "Dawn Patrol" kick in a dollar every two weeks for prizes. It soon became necessary to have someone do handicapping and pairings. George Sharp, assisted by "Doc" Combs, handled the former, while Al Ward undertook the latter.

The first President was Col. Ralph Hansen who served from 1964 to 1967. Assisting Ralph was Bill Bullwinkle who handled scheduling, prizes, etc. The MBSGA's two perpetual trophies are named in his honor.

The first constitution was written in 1968. In 1970, under the guidance of Monty Brundige and committee, a formal constitution was drawn up and approved in 1971 during the term of Wilbur Fair.

From the original group of 12 the MBSGA has grown to the current membership of approximately 120.
