International Blind Golf Association (IBGA) was established in 1998 as a disabled sports entity to organize, acknowledge and support international blind golf (visually impaired and blind golf) tournaments. As of 2014, it has around 500 registered golfers.
In 1996, Haruhisa Handa who was the founder of Japanese Blind Golf Association appealed to blind golf associations around the world to set up a governing organization. In 1997, World Blind Golfers Conference was held in Perth, Australia where representatives from 6 countries participated to propose the articles of association and handicap system. In 1998, the proposal was resolved at a meeting held during the 5th Blind Golf World Championship in Florida, USA, so that a global governing organization could be established. Handa was elected as the first president, and David Blyth from Australia became the first chairman (responsible in administration).
There were 8 organizations that took part in the World Blind Golfers’ Conference held in 1997 from 6 countries; Japan, United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. 
As of 2014, International Blind Golf Association has 18 member organizations from 16 countries including 4 associate organizations from 4 countries.
