The EDGA changes the lives of people with disability through the power of golf. Made up of volunteers from the National Golf Federations from 29 countries around the world, its objective is to help more than half a million people living with a disability try the sport of golf.

All charitable funds raised by EDGA at the Portugal Masters from tournament draw sheet sales, a longest drive competition sponsored by Golfbreaks, taking place during Wednesday’s Pro-Am, and a raffle, with some fantastic prizes to be won, will help fund the delivery of training, education and programmes in the country.

The European Tour announced earlier this year its ‘Golfers with Disability’ programme, running, in conjunction with EDGA, two 36-hole tournaments for Golfers with Disability alongside two of this season’s biggest Rolex Series events.
