Having had the privilege to attend many European Golf Association championships it is a great honor to host the 2011 European Senior Men's Team Championship.
Having said that it was our main concern to find the perfect venue for the 2011 European Amateur Team Championship and the Troia Championship Course is a clear commitment to our goal. Having hosted the Portuguese Open in 1983, European amateur championship in 2002 and the international Portuguese Amateur Championship in 2009.
I would like to thank our partners. Tróia golf Club, Sonae Turismo, Tróia Aqualuz and Tóia Marina A word of praise to the European Golf Association for trusting the Portuguese Golf Federation so many of its events and very especially this one.
On behalf of the Portuguese Golf Federation I welcome all teams, officials, sponsors and partners to the wonderful Tróia resort and may the best team win.
