The Achimota Golf Club is situated in a pleasant wooded country, some ten Kilometers north of Accra in the grounds of Achimota School. Golf was played in Accra on about than five nine hole courses from the early part of the century. While the Achimota course was relatively a late comer, it is the only one which has survived the building development which has changed Accra over some decades, from a sleepy centre of colonial Administration to the present busting commercial metropolis.
The Gold Coast established Achimota School in 1927 as the Prince of Wales College and it happened that several of the early teaching staff of the school including the Principal had Scottish origins. They immediately lent strength to the Accra golfing community. However, the journey to the Accra courses took up valuable travelling time which could otherwise have been devoted to the Royal Ancient Game of Golf.

Golf has been played in Kumasi since the early Twenties as evidenced by the magnifcient sterling Governor’s Cup in the possession of Royal Golf Club, Kumasi which was donated by the Governor of the Gold Coast, Sir Hugh Clifford KCMG in 1921.
The old Golf Course was sited at the present location of the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and Ghana National Cultural Centre. The Golf Course had to be re-located to give way to the new Hospital planned for Kumasi. The land in the valley of the Wahi River near the residency was found most suitable. Development of the course started with initial construction of five holes at the west end of the valley.

“It has become appealingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity”- Albert Einstein.
GEC is all set to put to rest the fears of Einstein. As a leading media& corporate events house we root ourselves to the belief that, we bind the industry together, every day. Whatever we do is a collective and connective initiative towards the betterment of our industry, humanity and society at large because at the end of each business day, we retire as human beings and every morning we wake up to do something special that makes us feel human while being human.
