Last year, the Academy exhibited select works of member artists in a special exhibition, The Academy of Golf Art: Artists of the Game, at the Morris Museum of Art, in Augusta, Georgia. The successful three-month exhibition spanned the week of the Masters Tournament. Works displayed included sculpture; paintings in oil, pastel, watercolour and casein; and photography.

Founded in 2003, the Academy of Golf Art is a non-profit organization whose mission is to create an awareness and appreciation for golf art as a valuable segment of fine art, expressing the essence of the game to help preserve its traditions through artistic representation, while serving its member artists. Membership in the Academy assures recognition for artists’ significant contributions to golf and the genre of golf art, ensuring the lasting legacy of their work and their place in the history of golf art.
