ABOUT BRITISH COLUMBIA GOLF
British Columbia Golf - a member-based organization governed by the British Columbia Golf Association (BCGA) - represents more than 57,000 individual golfers, in over 300 clubs at 261 member courses. As the governing body for golf in the province, British Columbia Golf acts as the voice for provincial golf affairs and functions as a resource centre for the golf industry. Through its affiliation with Golf Canada, the association is also involved in national golf affairs.
British Columbia Golf as it exists today was formally established on October 1, 2004, following the amalgamation of the British Columbia Ladies Golf Association Golf Association (BCLGA) and the British Columbia Golf Association (BCGA).
Although the origins of the association date back to 1893, British Columbia Golf was incorporated with a mandate to hold the B.C. Men's Amateur Championship on April 14, 1922, with J.E. Hall of Vancouver Golf Club elected the first president. The B.C. branch of the CLGA was not formed until 1932. Other goals of British Columbia Golf were to encourage regions around the province to form local associations, to conduct a local championship and to standardize the Rules of Golf among the representative clubs.
