I am delighted to welcome all competitors to the 2018 European Championship for Golfers with Disability.

For many the opportunity to play The EGA European Championship for Golfers with Disability, is a real sporting highlight. For a few the medal they receive, regardless of its colour will be reward for the endless hours of effort to reach their potential. It is my wish that all players will take away lasting memories, of good golf, good competition and lasting friendships.

The Troia Golf resort is one of the most challenging golf courses in Europe, Troia was designed by the world renown golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Senior, who laid out a seaside links type course on land that was the envy of many other famous designers. Formally a Golf World top 32 rated golf course, the course enjoys many vistas over the River Sado Estuary, the Atlantic Ocean and the Arrábida Mountains. The par 72 course is not for the feint of heart with huge waste areas and natural vegetation. It is an honest course that rewards good play and punishes bad shots.

Troia Golf offers excellent scenery while you play on the peninsula surrounded by mountains, a river, and the ocean. Legendary architect Robert Trent Jones considered the third hole one of the best 18 he had ever designed..
