Army Golf Association (West Midlands)

The Army Golf Association (AGA) was established in 1974 to include Officers and Soldiers serving in the Army, regular or retired. Reserves were introduced in 2011 and to date including the civilians based in Army establishments, the AGA has 1800 members.

The AGA (WM) society was started in 2016 and in its debut year plus last year’s events has built up its numbers to 98 golfers. It has an active following on Facebook and is looking to expand its calendar to include some match plays against other clubs and societies.

At present seven meetings per annum are held to include the season opener, spring, summer, autumn and winter meets plus a matchplay event (including a plate competition) and a team of six enter the AGA Inter-Regional event held nationally.

This year the season opener took place at Calderfields G&CC in March with the spring meeting recently held at Shifnal GC, and the summer meet will be at the Shropshire GC in July. The matchplay is in its early rounds with the finals to be held at Beau Desert later in the summer. The autumn and winter meetings are yet to be confirmed.

SSgt Aidi Bennett and Sgt Marcus Murcott are the secretaries for the AGA (WM) society and where possible would welcome some sponsorship and new members.
