As of 1 Jul 20, all Corps and Regional fixtures must now be submitted for approval to the AGA Secretary for onward authorisation by ASCB. Applications must be submitted as soon as practical but in any case at least 7 days prior to the actual event.

In addition and in conjunction with the authorisation process, please also complete and return the Fixtures List for Regional Secretaries and the Fixtures List for Corps Secretaries to Diane Walters as soon as fixtures are confirmed. NIL RETURNS ARE REQUIRED as if your fixture does not appear on the ASCB fixtures list then it will not be authorised or deemed eligible for PF travel funding. All fixtures previously submitted will be considered cancelled going forward and the ASCB calendar will be updated based on specific returns.

AGA COVID-19 Latest update: Wed 23 Sep 20 (Max no of gatherings, face coverings, and food and beverage service in the Clubhouse)

The AGA has fielded a large number of calls, emails and messages via social media about the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on golf following the latest announcement from No 10.

Having engaged with England Golf and the ASCB we can confirm that golf at Corps and Regional level may continue as has been the case, but with a number of minor changes in line with face coverings and the management of food and beverages whilst in the clubhouse, all of which we will added to the AGA COVID-19 Risk Assessment we have been providing to event organisers. For a full list of the FAQs England Golf have produced a consolidated list which can be found at the following link: https://www.englandgolf.org/coronavirus-faqs/.

Until otherwise advised please continue the good work in organising golf at Corps and Regional level ensuring that the rules that appear to be working well to date are continued.

 

AGA MEMBERSHIP

 

AGA membership is open to all soldiers and officers both serving and retired. MOD civilians are also eligible to join provided they are employed in an Army establishment.

WELCOME TO THE ARMY GOLF ASSOCIATION (AGA)

The Army Golf Association was formed in 1974 to promote the interests of all golfers, both officers and soldiers, regular and reserve.

Since then it has encouraged Army personnel to take to the golf course and importantly enable those leaving the Army to continue to play in Army Golf competitions. Since 2011 Reserve soldiers and officers have also been able to participate in the Army Golf Championships on an even footing and since 2015 they are also eligible for selection to represent the Army at Inter Services. The Association now has some 1800 members, made up of Serving and Retired Army personnel along with MOD Civilians based in Army establishments and dependents (must be over 18) of current members.
