Welcome to IBGA
Although there have been blind golf tournaments held since the early 1950’s the International Blind Golf Association was officially founded in 1998. This came about through the efforts of Dr. Haruhisa Handa (now Honorary President of I.B.G.A.) who arranged meetings in Australia and the United States which resulted in bringing together six countries that were each following their own programme. The number of member countries has grown steadily ever since.
Currently there are over 500 registered I.B.G.A. players and many more playing who are not yet registered. The number is growing all the time.
Blind Golf is played to the Rules of Golf produced by the R&A & USGA see more
There are 13 countries that are full members of IBGA see more
