Reserved for the national-champion clubs from each EGA member country, the competition will be played for the first time in two years, having been cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19.
18 clubs will compete in the 20th edition of the event. The national champions of 16 countries have earned at the European title alongside hosts, Fontainebleau, and defending champions, Smørum Golf Club of Denmark.
The tournament takes place over three days (from Thursday to Saturday), with three players competing on each team. The two best stroke play scores from each team’s three players each day will count towards the clubs’ final totals.
