An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exixts in any public place where people are present. Covid-19 is an extremly contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Accoeding to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By attending the AAGHOF & AAC&YHOF event, you volunttarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Welcome to the official website of the African American Golfers Hall of Fame, Inc. (AAGHOF).  Take as much time as you wish.

We hope that this site will serve as an additional resource to provide a deeper historic perspective about the African American involvement in the game of golf since indeed the 1800s. We want you to use this site to see just how deep our "roots" have been and are in "growing the game of golf."

We have and will identify those who made it possible for us to enjoy this great game called "golf." We will honor and celebrate those who have gone before us and those who are currently making their mark. We will make sure that our youth golfers "raise the bar" even higher and stay on the right course so that one day, they will also have a hall of fame (AAGHOF) to enter.

All of our junior golfers, scholars, corporate supporters, teachers, weekend golfers, and others have said: "If it is here, it must be right." Tell your friends and neighbors that this site has a lot of "real good golf information" about the past and shows our vision for the future. Contact us with new history and positive ideas. Thanks for visiting us! Come back again!
