Last call for entries as Amendoeira prepares for Landmark 10th World Kids Golf Championship

Milestone celebrations for prestigious junior tournament to include World Kids Golf 10th Birthday Party, BBQ and Parent-Child Par 3 Contest

More than 100 junior golfers from all around Europe will take part in OWKG 10th Birthday Party, BBQ and Parent-Child Par 3 Contest as Amendoeira Golf Resort celebrates a landmark 10th World Kids Golf Championship from July 23-27.

Included as a British Junior Golf Tour event for the first time in 2018, the tournament will benefit from support of the tour in the delivery of the event, as well as World Amateur Golf Ranking points and a range of prizes for the top three finishers.

With the competition nearing full capacity, entrants are encouraged to move quickly before the June 25th closing date. The field last year contained competitors from Spain, France, Germany and Poland.

The week at Amendoeira offers kids the chance to compete over two of Europe's most highly regarded courses, designed by Ryder Cup heroes, Nick Faldo and Christy O'Connor Junior.

Though competition is an important element of proceedings, the tournament prioritises allowing the youngsters to progress in a supportive environment. Parents are encouraged to caddy for their children during all competitive rounds and to compete side-by-side in the second annual Parent-Child Par-3 contest under the floodlit Academy course.

Full use of Amendoeira's state-of-the-art practice facilities is also provided to each competitor during tournament week, providing an opportunity to make significant strides in the game in a concentrated period of time.

Chris Howell of Amendoeira Golf Resort said: "We are in the final stages of preparations for this year's tournament and it's going to be our biggest and best yet, with a number of new elements to mark our ten-year anniversary celebrations.

"We're already looking forward to hosting junior golfers from all over the world in 2018 and would urge any parents considering a golfing trip with children this summer to spend it with us during the World Kids Golf Championship offers. It's set to be a week to remember."

Following its agreement with the British Junior Golf Tour, which will see the event feature as part of its schedule for the first time, Tour Director, Neil Randall, said: "The World Kids Golf Championship at Amendoeira Golf Resort will be a stand out event on our schedule, owing to the quality of the golf courses, not to mention the accommodation, service, organisation and on-site facilities.

"The week will provide an important opportunity for over 100 young golfers to gain experience playing in a competitive but fun environment, aiding their development and, more importantly, providing a memorable experience of enjoying the game."

 

Special rates for luxury on-site villas and apartments are available to families of competitors, with packages for a family of 4 starting from €1,540 for 6 nights and tournament entry. Entry only packages, which also guarantee four rounds of golf, buffet lunch on each day and a spot in the Parent-Child Par-3 Contest, range from €125-€270.
