European Disabled Golf Association partners with Portugal Masters

The European Disabled Golf Association (EDGA), an international non-profit organisation for golfers with disabilities, has been selected as the Official Charity of the Portugal Masters for the second consecutive year.

More than €22,500 was raised during the 2016 Portugal Masters, which helped EDGA to train 20 PGA of Portugal professionals to engage with people with disabilities and encourage them to try the game.
The funds also assisted EDGA to begin several projects in the Algarve and one in Lisbon, with additional projects planned in Lisbon and Oporto. The partnership with the 2016 Portugal Masters also helped to promote elite disabled golf by helping to support the European Team Championships at Quinta do Lago earlier this summer.
EDGA supports a wide range of projects and associations in Portugal.
The partnership during this year’s event at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura from September 21-24 will help EDGA to accelerate existing projects and add several more, including further training for volunteers and professionals, and support for a national project for golf for the disabled.
Formed in 2000, EDGA is uniquely positioned to support the expansion of initiatives which promote the development, support and delivery of golf for individuals with impairment across Europe.
The association is made up of the national governing bodies from 23 countries. Although EDGA is primarily focused on Europe, organisations from around the world regularly reference the EDGA for direction, advice and more specifically the definitions of impairment, eligibility and tournament criteria.
