The European Golf Association and the Swedish Golf Federation, in close collaboration with Upsala Golf Club, are ready to host a great championship and welcome all participating nations, players, captains and coaches.
The Swedish ladies’ team will tee it up September 9th to 12th at Upsala Golf Club to defend their European Championship title won in Italy last year.
Maria Möller, President of the Swedish Golf Federation:
”As one of the leading golfing nations in Europe, with nearly 500 000 golfers and 454 golf clubs, the Swedish Golf Federation has the ambition to support European golf by hosting one European Championship each year.”

”Everybody at Upsala GC are looking forward to welcome you and to make your stay pleasant and to make the Championship a memorable experience for us all.”
A MEMORABLE CHAMPIONSHIP
The 2020 European Ladies’ Team Championship has it all to be a memorable championship. The Championship this year is played in a different season and in a modified format than usual.
In the team match play format, each team will play two single matches and one foursome. In the event of a match being all square after 18 holes, players shall continue to play until the match is decided.
TOP PLAYERS TO TEE IT UP
The teams that will travel to Sweden to compete have a lot of accomplished players. A look at the current World Amateur Golf Ranking shows that six of the top-10 players in the world will be in Sweden to represent their countries.
THE DEFENDING CHAMPIONS
The Swedish Ladies Team are playing at home trying to defend their title. They won in Italy in 2019 and in Austria in 2018. Sweden also won championships in consecutive years both in France (2014 & 2015) and in England (2016-2017).
Can Sweden make it three in a row?
We will find out on Saturday 12th of September when this year’s championship will be decided.
