More ... Welcome to

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).

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 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 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".

80
We recently discovered a document announcing the opening of our current course on 4th January 1937. We regard this as the date of our establishment and consequently celebrate our 80th anniversary in January 2017.

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.

Within this season's calendar we plan the usual busy year of main competitions, together with some accompanying social/other events, providing everybody with a chance to whack a golf-ball, no matter how good or bad you are.

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.

54
It is not only the Club's 80th anniversary in 2017, but is the year in which we will hold (Friday/Saturday March 10th/11th) the 54th 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, 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).

29
Ladies will have their Open Championship as well in 2017: the 29th Bahrain Ladies Open Championship competition. The Ladies Open commenced in 1987 (see the history and a summary of all previous prize winners).
   Last 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.
