AGC: where having fun is the priority and playing golf the means. We welcome players of any ability (we have a resident Professional to help you improve) and as a visitor it is only BD8.500 to access the course for the day. AGC is located east of Awali village, about 30 minutes drive from Manama (the capital of Bahrain).
AGC is truly one for its members, run by the magnanimous voluntary efforts of our Committee and helpers, prospering due to the commitment of Bapco and our other sponsors as well as the dedication of our grounds and Clubhouse staff.Surprisingly, the Clubhouse and terrace often lacks polite banter and genteel behaviour, especially at competition prize givings. If we had a motto, perhaps it would be "AGC - for golfers who wish to play, rather than be seen to play: check your ego at the door".
The season also sees a once-monthly (on a Saturday) competition for non-handicappers, intended to help beginners gain more experience, may be even competence. For those who have the ability to play in the morning mid-week, the Wednesday Wackers is open to all - non-members as well as members - teeing-off at 9am for nine holes of social golf.
The Bahrain Open started from small beginnings in 1964 and was the first Open Championship for individual players in the Gulf region.
The Championship has continued over the years with competitors from Bahrain and many other international locations (see the history, a summary of previous prize winners, report and photos from the 53rd Open Day 1 & Day 2). Andrew Marshall became the Bahrain Open winner for the sixth time, equalling the record held by Abdulla Sultan Saleh and Nasser Yacoub. See the detailed results (click on the player's score to see the detail for the player).
This year's Championship was played on Friday/Saturday March 4th/5th. It was won by AGC's Sarah Hobday, happy to have finally followed in her daughter Suzanna's footsteps, herself a Bahrain Ladies Open winner in 2009. See the report, photos for Day 1 & Day 2 and the detailed results.
All the news etc: latest 13th May 2016
(Onny is out of Bahrain until 23rd June:
the AGC website will be updated on his return)
Committee has some fun at last
The next competition is the 2016/17 season opener - the President vs Captain Team Matchplay.
However, the Summer Ball-Sweep is held every Saturday afternoon, teeing-off at about 3pm. This is 9 holes of social golf, open to members, non-members, handicappers and non-handicappers.
