Italian Golf Federation

History of FIG

Costitution

Golf was introduced in Italy in 1903, imported by the British, with the foundation of the Golf Club of Rome, followed in 1907 by the golf clubs of Menaggio and Cadenabbia. In 1905, the first international championships for amateurs and women were held on the Ugolino course in Florence. However, the Federazione Italiana Golf (FIG or Italian Golf Federation) was founded in Milan only in 1927. During the Second World War the federation's activities died out to the extent that it was necessary to create a new organisation in May 1946: the Associazione Golfistica Italiana (AGI or Italian Golf Association). In February 1959 the body resumed its original name. The federation is listed in Law no. 426 of 16/2/1942.
