The Bhutan Golf Federation like any other National Sports Federation in Bhutan was constituted in the year 1983 under the auspices of the Bhutan Olympic Committee and has been receiving financial support from BOC to carry out its activities as per the annual calendar of activity. Support has been mainly in organizing the Bhutan Handicap Tournament and the National Opens. Through the BOC, the BGF has also been supporting participation in the SAF Golf tournaments and where invitations are received, in tournaments in the region.
The Present Executive Committee of the BGF took office in August 2007. Since the Royal Thimphu Golf course is the only proper Golf Course in Bhutan, it is very important that the BGF is closely associated with the RTGC.
