Ryder Cup European Development Trust


The Trustees are nominated by The PGAs of Europe, the European Tour and The R&A, and as such have a breadth and depth of knowledge of the game of golf. All of the Trustees are passionate about the development of golf and recognise the need to grow the game.

All the Trustees are committed to trying to find the best way to use the charity’s funds in order to further golf and encourage more people, especially juniors, into the game.

The Trustees meet two or three times each year in order to consider all applications.
