Playing golf abroad is a life's dream for some golfers, the Alabama Golf Association wants to make it a reality for all AGA Members. Join us on "A Trip of a Lifetime" as we partner with Sullivan Golf & Travel to create an experience for AGA Members in Southwest Ireland from August 24-September 1, 2019.  This is a great opportunity to meet new golfers who are AGA Members like you and share in golf and comraderie for a week.

Are refunds available if I cannot make the trip?
A full refund of the initial deposit is given only if written notification is received on or before January 8th, 2019. Cancellations received after January 9th, 2019 will forfeit the deposit. The AGA will try to make an effort to fill the vancancy to permit a refund.
