AGC: where having fun is the priority, relaxation the reason 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).
The 6309 yard par-70 sand course of rock fairways and oiled "greens", Clubhouse and related facilities are maintained by our major sponsor Bapco as a recreational outlet for its employees, with Associate-Guest membership available for others.
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 and 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 52nd Open Day 1 & Day 2).Nasser Yacoub became the Bahrain Open winner for the sixth time last season, 19 years after his first Open Championship win in 1996. The hole-by-hole scores (all players) are here.
Last year's Championship was won by AGC's Lynn St Lawrence who commented that her success was due to having great playing partners and a fun time, treating the event just like any other weekend competition.
See the report, and photos for Day 1 & Day 2.
The 28th Bahrain Ladies Open Championship will be played on Friday/Saturday 4th/5th March 2016.
