Amendoeira set for landmark edition of popular kids event

Europe’s best juniors set to compete at Oceânico World Kids Golf Champs

Amendoeira Golf Resort will stage the tenth edition of its Oceânico World Kids Golf Championship over the renowned Faldo and O’Connor Jnr courses from July 23-27, strengthening its commitment to inspire young golfers from around the globe.

The tournament offers elite junior golfers aged seven to 18 the chance to gain valuable experience at one of the most professional junior golf events in Europe. Players will enjoy fully-catered dining, world-class practice facilities and the under 18 category will compete for World Amateur Golf Ranking points. Participants will also enjoy a fun-packed schedule, which will kick off with the OWKG tenth birthday party, including a Parent-Child Par-3 contest played under the floodlights of the resort’s Academy Course.

Christopher Howell, chairman of the Oceânico Group, said: “We’re so excited to host the tenth edition of Oceânico World Kids Golf.

“The event has gone from strength-to-strength each year and to reach the tenth edition speaks volumes for the quality and popularity of event. Our commitment to junior golf is critical to us, and we can’t wait to welcome another crop of junior golfers and their families for a week of competition and fun.”

The competition will be played over both of Amendoeira’s championship layouts; the O’Connor Jnr Course, designed by Ryder Cup icon Christy O’Connor Jnr; and the Faldo Course, Portugal’s Best Golf Course 2016 (World Golf Awards) designed by World Golf Hall-of-Famer and six-time major champion Sir Nick Faldo.

To celebrate reaching this landmark year, Amendoeira also have a full schedule of off-course activities planned, comprising unique challenges, special golf clinics, visits from special guests and incredible prizes up for grabs. New packages have also been launched, including tournament entry for the youngsters of the group, which are available from €1,321. For more information, visit amendoeiraresort.com.
