Like the Walker Cup, the St Andrews Trophy is a biennial international match which takes place in non-Walker Cup years.
It is contested by talented amateur golfers from Great Britain and Ireland and the Continent of Europe, using a format which mirrors that of its more well-known counterpart. It was first played in 1956 over the West Course at Wentworth.
The 2022 match took place at Penati in Slovakia.
Penati has quickly become one of the top golf resorts in Central Europe, built in the Záhorie region near the town of Senica amidst pine forests on land interspersed with white sand dunes.
The European Golf Association was founded during a meeting held in Luxembourg on the 20th November 1937. The Association concerns itself solely with matters of an international character. Membership is restricted to European National Amateur Golf Associations, Federations or Unions.
