THE GOAL OF THE AGS IS SIMPLE. If nothing else, to make an impact on how we ought to play the game. Regardless of opinion, the game was played with 'rules of the day'. Simpler rules, tactical rules, fun rules - bad luck (stymie) was even part of the daily game.

ABOUT

AGS History

People wonder if the Auld Golf Society is a gutty golf organization. It's not. It's a bit about every era of golf played up and into the first metal shafted clubs. It's about discovering that there is more to hickory golf than a big event with wooden shafted clubs. It's about asking yourself, "what am I doing"? and finally about true representation of the game from the past eras.

Subscribing members will receive periodic newsletters with information and opinions from Auld Mac (Chris McIntyre) aimed to raise awareness and measure the progress of the AGS. All newsletters are archived and available as reference for new members.
