EDGA was set up to help individuals with impairment to start, stay, succeed and enjoy golf and now provides advice and guidance for organisations on tournaments, training and services to golfers with disability.
EDGA is made-up of organisations from 17 member countries, with 15 being the recognised Federations of golf. The remaining two members are officially constituted organisations which represent golfers with disability in their respective countries. Although EDGA is focussed on the European dimension, organisations from around the World regularly reference to EDGA for direction, advice and more specifically the definitions of impairment, eligibility and tournament criteria.
The European Tour is committed to celebrating the game of golf from the origins of the professional game, building a proud history of achievement, sportsmanship and integrity as well as showcasing our diverse global talent.
Based in St. Andrews, The R&A organises The Open Championship, major amateur events and international matches. Together with the United States Golf Association, The R&A governs the game worldwide.
