Awali Golf Club, Bahrain
Membership of the Awali Golf Club is at the sole discretion of the Awali Golf Club committee.
As we are a golf club, we require all membership applications to be made by persons who do actually play golf, in a reasonably serious way. However, golf competence and potential for brilliance are not relevant to your application.
To apply for membership, you should first complete a Awali Golf Club Membership Application form, available at the BAPCO Club reception at Awali village, or the AGC Clubhouse, and hand it in to the staff at the AGC Clubhouse.
As an employee of BAPCO, you are entitled to membership of the BAPCO Club without charge (for this, complete a BAPCO Club Employee Application Form available at the BAPCO Club Reception). However, BAPCO Club membership does not include membership of Awali Golf Club. To become a member of AGC and play the course, the price is BD10 per year (complete the Awali Golf Club for BAPCO Employees application form).
To apply for membership, first complete an Associate-Guest Membership Application form (download here). Good news! Currently, the Club does not have a waiting list for you to become an associate guest member
In order for you to show you do indeed want to play golf, you should pay and play as a visitor as often as possible (your visitor fees are recorded at the Clubhouse each time). These records are reviewed by the Committee on a monthly basis and determine the priority order for applicants.
The Club's season runs between 1st August to 31st July. When the Committee has approved your membership application, the applicable membership fees are dependent on the timing of your application:
As an Associate Guest Member, you have no voting rights at the Club's AGM. However, there is another category of membership, Guest membership, which does have voting rights. The Committee determines if a person is eligible to be transferred from Associate Guest membership to Guest membership (under the rules of the Club's constitution).
If you are applying between the dates of 1st August and 31st January, you are subject to the annual fee of BD250 (single membership) or BD300 (family membership).
If you are applying between the dates of 1st February and 31st July, you are subject to the 6-monthly fee of BD125 (single membership) or BD150 (family membership).
There is no other pro-rata payment scale.
Other company employees
If you are an employee of a company wishing to fast-track your membership application, then offering to provide sponsorship to the Club is a good start. Please leave your contact details at the Clubhouse, asking the Captain to contact you.
Supporting the Club
Finally, as a member, YOU are expected to contribute to the Club's success in a pro-active way.
This means going beyond just paying your subscription fees. Those who volunteer many, many hours of their time, enabling you to enjoy the Club, are more likely to continue to do so if you are not seen as a free-loader (especially a whingeing free-loader). See here for further details of these expectations.
