“It is an honor and a privilege to serve as a Trustee of the Academy of Golf Art,” said Hartough. “We believe golf art plays an important role in preserving the game’s history, and I am proud to be part of that legacy.”
The Academy of Golf Art (AGA) is a professional society of golf artists founded to create an awareness and appreciation of golf art as a valuable segment of fine art, expressing the game of golf and preserving the game’s traditions. Formed in 2004, the AGA, a not-for-profit organization, is headquartered in West Hampton Beach, N.Y. Recent AGA exhibitions have been held at the Cornell Museum of Art and American Culture in Delray Beach, Fla.; at the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum of Myrtle Beach, in Myrtle Beach, S.C.; and at Oyster Harbors Club in Osterville, Mass.
