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). AGC is located east of Awali village, about 30 minutes drive from Manama.
The 6309 yard par-70 desert course, Clubhouse and all other facilities are maintained by Bapco. AGC is primarily a facility for employees of Bapco, however Associate-Guest membership is available too. AGC is truly one for its members, run by the magnanimous voluntary efforts of its Committee. Surprisingly, the Clubhouse 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 2012/13 season
Also, we have another significant anniversary this season: our Clubhouse is 60 years young! The first Clubhouse was constructed in the 1952/53 season (see more details).
It is not only the Club's 75th and the Clubhouse's 60th birthday in 2013, but also the 50th occasion of our most prestigious competition, the Bahrain Open Championship. This season, the Bahrain Open was the major tournament of the Bapco Festival of Golf - ten days of events held in March/April 2013.
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 results and photos from the 50th Open Day 1 & Day 2 of April 2013).
To top off our exceptional 2012/13 season, it was also the 25th occasion of the Bahrain Ladies Open Championship competition.
This Ladies Championship off-scratch competition is accompanied by a nett competition, to give a chance for any competitor to win a prize, not just the low handicappers (see the history, a summary of previous results and photos from the 25th Ladies Open Day 1 & Day 2 of April 2013).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 too!
