The International Association of Golf Administrators (IAGA) is a growing body of golf administrators welcoming amateur golf associations from across the globe.
The IAGA was formed in 1968 to promote and conserve the best interests and the true spirit of the game of golf as embodied in its ancient and honorable traditions. With those pursuits in mind, the IAGA serves as a medium for golf administrators to exchange information, techniques and other data relating to the game of golf and establish channels of communication among all of the world's golfing fraternities.
Members are golf administrators of state and regional amateur golf associations and other invited national golf-related organizations. These administrators manage the affairs of their respective golf associations in various capacities. The IAGA has members from the United States Golf Association, Golf Canada, and most of the state and provincial golf associations throughout North America. Administrators from several other countries hold memberships as well.
The IAGA holds its annual meeting in early November. A host of IAGA members and guest speakers make presentations on golf-related topics. Breakout sessions allow members to interact and discuss specific problems in their fields, and a new Board of Directors is elected during the business meeting.
For several years the IAGA searched for ways to provide members of our associations the ability to post scores at one location and have those scores routed back to the golfer's home association. With that in mind the members of the IAGA developed the International Golf Network (IGN - www.ign.net).
|The first ever awards for achievement in best practices were presented during the 48th IAGA Annual Meeting at the Fairmont Southampton, Bermuda on Monday, Nov. 3, 2014. The association recognized outstanding performance by IAGA members in 5 categories, for large and small golf associations. Click above for more information.
Does the IAGA have any job openings?
Finding a job in golf administration can be difficult. The IAGA is composed of 250 members from about 80 golf organizations primarily in the USA and Canada. Few positions are available; most hiring takes place in the winter. Only the highly qualified are considered.
What defines a Regular Member?
Regular Members are executive directors or chief executive officers (or equivalent) of national, state, regional, provincial or district amateur golf associations.
