The Australian Golf Foundation Limited (AGF) is a newly established company and charitable trust with the objective to encourage and promote the sport of golf in Australia. The AGF will carry out fundraising activities in order to provide financial and non-financial support to programs, activities or events that will sponsor, encourage and promote participation in golf. Examples of AGF support may include participation programs, high performance programs, volunteer development, improving facilities and capital works, international golfer exchange programs, providing scholarships, and conservation of Australian golfing history.
