The European Disabled Golf Association (EDGA) was in the year 2000 by organisations representing golfers with disability from seven countries. Today the association is made up of the National Governing Bodies from 23 countries. Although EDGA is focused 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.
As a European organisation, EDGA is uniquely positioned to support the development of initiatives which promote, the development of golf for individuals with impairment across Europe, positively influence public perception and offer meaningful and relevant advice to golf’s ruling authorities.
“We help individuals with impairment to start, stay, succeed and enjoy golf. We advise and guide organisations on tournaments, training and services to golfers with disability.”
