History of the European Senior Ladies’ GOLF Association – ESLGA
The European Team Championships for Senior Ladies were historically organized by ESWGA, the European Senior Women’s Golf Association.
In 1981 Marisa Sgaravatti, an Italian Marchioness, started to create tournaments between three countries in Europe. She loved the game of golf and she played in numerous competitions all over Europe. It was thanks to her that the first Female Senior European tournament took place.
In 1984 Anne Bouton suggested to start a European Team Tournament. The ESWGA was born.
