Make sure you’re in place to witness history as Scotland re-affirms its international reputation as the home of golf.
Aim of the Game
The first ever European Golf Team Championships will have individual competitions for men, women and also a mixed team event. The objective of the game is to ultimately get the ball in the hole in the fewest number of shots, across an 18-hole golf course.
The European Golf Team Championships will be played in two different formats of the game with the individual element involving Match Play while the team event will be Stroke Play. Match Play involves two players playing head-to-head in a knockout format with the lowest score winning on each hole. Stroke Play is the cumulative score for each player across the full 18 holes with the lowest total across all participants being the winning score.
