Paphos golfer’s association was formed in 2006 to provide reasonable priced golf for people who could not justify the expense of joining one of the four clubs in the Paphos region. We take the golf seriously but very much with fun in mind, catering for both Ladies and Gentlemen. The Association holds 2 PGA handicap qualifying competitions a month, plus several other opportunities a month to put in a qualifying card, should the need arise. The medal competition is held on the first Sunday of the month and is normally held at one of the four courses in the Paphos area, but the around half are held at our club Elea GC, we also hold a Mid-Month Medal, held on the third Sunday of the month, all are held at Elea GC, at this competition you can choose which tee to play off, and be able to pick a early or late tee time. As several of our members are off peak members at Elea GC we arrange games on a Tuesday, Friday and early Sunday mornings (except when we play an official PGA competition), these are normally team games.

Each year we hold a Chairman’s and Captain’s Day, which include a golf competition followed by a meal. We also arrange various social events during the year which members may wish to attend, spouses and partners are also welcome.

We became members of the Cyprus Golf Federation in 2008 and all the associations members will be given an WHS handicap.

All members must play in at least four Medal competitions per year, to retain their membership, this can be done by playing in the Monthly Medal, or the Mid-Month Medal competitions, once you have joined you will receive a membership card, and an Association polo shirt. At the present time we have vacancies for anyone with an official handicap of 36 or less, if no handicap certificate you will need to perform one qualifying round achieving a handicap of 36 or less. The PGA financial year runs from January to December, there is a one-off joining fee of 60 euro and an annual subscription of 100 euro (of which part pays for your membership to the Cyprus Golf Federation), the annual subscription is on a sliding scale dependent on when you join. The committee at the present time is Chairman Alan Betchley, Secretary Kelvyn Bailey, Handicap Secretary Paul Major, Treasurer Keith Gallagher, Captain Mark Watson. Vice-Captain George Cooper.
