Portugal received the 2021 European Girls’ Team Championship!
The venues of the 2021 European Amateur and European Girls’ Team Championships have been changed. The events, originally scheduled for Vasatorp Golf Club in Sweden (men) and Hliversumsche Golf Club in the Netherlands (girls) on 6-10 July have been moved to alternate venues due to Covid-19 related local and travel restrictions in the two countries. “Unfortunately, we have to tell you that the European Girls’ Team Championship and the European Amateur Team Championship have to be relocated.” Said EGA President Haukur Örn Birgisson and EGA General Secretary, Michael Thannhäuser in a joint statement. “The Royal Spanish Federation and the Portuguese Golf Federation have offered two wonderful venues close to Barcelona and Lisbon respectively, and they look forward to hosting all participating teams. We are enormously grateful for their wonderful support.”
The European Amateur Team Championship was played at PGA Catalunya Resort in Spain, while Montado Golf Resort in Portugal was the host of the European Girls’ Team Championship from 6th – 10th July.
Montado Golf Resort regularly hosts the Portuguese International Amateur Championships, and previously hosted the European Ladies’ Team Championship in 2017.
16 countries competed for the men’s title this year, while 20 nations have entered teams into the European Girls’ Team Championship. The battle to claim the Trophy took place on last day in very hot conditions with the weather reaching 38 degrees at Montado Golf Resort. Spain was the winner of 2021 European Girls’ Team Championship.
