Season 2014-15 Events Calendar
(21st July 2014) The Handicaps & Competitions sub-committee has published the initial Events Calendar for the 2014-15 season. Amongst other things, we welcome a return of regular Non-Handicapper competitions, organised by Alan Goulden. See here.
(Pages within the website will be updated in due course to reflect this calendar)
 
Welcome to Awali Golf Club, Bahrain

AGC: where having fun is the priority, relaxation the reason and playing golf the means. You may play golf as a Member or as a visitor (only BD7.500 a round), and we welcome players of any ability. AGC is located east of Awali village, about 30 minutes drive from Manama (the capital of Bahrain).

The 6309 yard par-70 desert course of rock fairways and sand/oil greens, Clubhouse and all other facilities are maintained by Bapco, as a recreational outlet for its employees. However, Associate-Guest membership is available for non-Bapco employees. AGC is truly one for its members, run by the magnanimous voluntary efforts of its Committee. 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".

AGC's 2014/15 season (1st August 2014 - 31st July 2015)

We believe our current site became fully operational during 1938, and so we enter the year of our 77th anniversary in 2015. As an example of the Club's long history, we have records of the winners of our most impressive trophy, the Kingsbury Cup, all the way back to the 1938/39 season.

This season's initial events calendar is now published, and we have another busy year of main competitions, together with some accompanying social/other events, providing everybody with a chance to wack a golf-ball, no matter how good or bad you are. This season also sees a once-monthly (on a Saturday) competition for non-handicappers, intended to help beginners gain more experience. May be even competence.

It is not only the Club's 77th anniversary in 2015, but will be the year in which we hold, at the beginning of April, the 52nd occasion of our most prestigious competition - the Bahrain Open Championship.

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 and photos from the 51st Open Day 1 & Day 2). Hamad Mubarak Afnan became the Bahrain Open winner for the fifth time last season, 23 years after his first Open Championship win in 1991. The hole-by-hole scores (all players) are here.

Towards the end of March 2015 will also witness the 27th outing of the Bahrain Ladies Open Championship competition. The Ladies Open commenced in 1987 (see the history and a summary of all previous prize winners).
   The Championship was won last season by AGC's Janet McAlpine at her eighteenth attempt and fittingly on the eighteenth hole.
   See the report, the detailed individual player results, all prize-winners, and photos for Day 1 & Day 2.

We prosper due to the commitment of Bapco, the generosity of our other Sponsors, the astounding efforts of our voluntary Committee and the dedication of our staff. But guess what - there is always space for you to contribute and volunteer!
