Dear Presidents, General Secretaries and EGA Committee members,
Last Friday I spoke on the phone with the manager of the Ukrainian Golf Federation and,
on behalf of all EGA members, expressed my great sorrow with their desperate situation.
I subsequently exchanged emails and wished everyone well in these dark days and
reminded them of the many hours of joy their players, officials, and family members gave
all of us and of the friendship and camaraderie everyone so enjoyed.
It goes without saying that the EGA fully supports our Ukrainian friends.
Yesterday evening, 2 March 2022, the EGA Executive Committee convened a special
meeting and concluded that the European Golf Association fully supports the
International Olympic Committee’s recommendations. I can also confirm that no EGA
events are planned for Belarus or Russia.
The EGA will continue to closely monitor the situation and may reassess its decisions and
measures according to future developments.
