Teams Ready Themselves for PGAs of Europe 2012 International Team Championship1 min read


Posted on: 15th Nov 2012

With less than a week to go until the PGAs of Europe 2012 International Team Championship, teams from all across Europe are readying themselves for what should be a stunning test of golf at the Alvor course at Onyria Palmares Beach and Golf Resort, in the Western part of Portugal’s Algarve region.

Supported by Glenmuir, Associaçäo Turismo do Algarve, Hotel Vila Galé Lagos and Ryder Cup European Development Trust, the tournament will feature 25 teams from the far reaches of the continent competing for the €35,000 prize fund, playing a 72-hole strokeplay competition with the best two individual scores from the Team of three counting towards the overall Team score.

Last year’s Champions, France, return to the tournament to defend their title, however, with a different venue in play than that of 2011’s hosts Vale do Lobo, it is a tough tournament to call, as each of the teams are represented by some of the nationalities’ most outstanding professional players.
