The Africa Amateur Golf Team Championship event remains one of the most prestigious golf competitions in Africa.

It is held bi-annually and is played using the Eisenhower format and is a 72-hole stroke play played over three days. Each country is represented by a team of four players.

The team score is obtained by adding the best three of the four gross scores. The trophy is awarded to the team with the lowest aggregate score.

The biennial All Africa Golf Team Championship – considered Africa’s most prestigious amateur golf team event – is endorsed by The Royal & Ancient of St. Andrews (R&A) and the African Golf Confederation (AGC).

The 2022 championship will see the countries will battle it out once again in a 72-hole stroke play format with the best three scores counting towards the team total in each round at the El Gouna golf course in Hurghada, Egypt.

The course, designed jointly by Gene Bates and Fred Couples, measures 6,269m off the championship tees and offers stunning panoramic views of the Red Sea mountains and turquoise waterways. The layout meanders through strategically placed bunkers, lagoons and desert flora.

South Africa won the inaugural biennial event in 2001 and consequently triumphed in Botswana (2003), Uganda (2005), Namibia (2007), Egypt (2011), Swaziland (2013), Kenya (2015) and Zimbabwe (2017).
