Oceânico's top junior event entries open

2015 03 Competitors Gather At Amendoeira Golf Resort For Sixth Annual Oceânico World Kids Golf
Oceânico World Kids Golf Championship

Entries are now open for the seventh edition of the Oceânico World Kids Golf Championship with the tournament set to offer the unique combination of championship golf and family fun.

Last year’s event attracted a record 127 competitors from across Europe with budding youngsters between the ages of seven and 18 playing over the two impressive championship layouts at the Algarve’s acclaimed Amendoeira Golf Resort.



The 2015 edition of Oceânico's R&A sanctioned amateur tournament will take place between July 20 and July 24 and will offer youngsters the chance to compete under tour-like conditions, whilst combining the experience with a memorable family holiday in luxurious surroundings.



Junior golfers between the ages of seven and 18 are invited to compete within their relevant age and gender categories, with children aged 10-and-over playing over 18 holes on each of the three tournament days, while the nine-and-under contest will be fought out over three nine-hole rounds.

"The 2015 edition promises to be even better than before" - Chris Stillwell, Oceânico Golf’s CEO

The Oceânico event takes place over three rounds on the distinguished Oceânico Faldo Course and O’Connor Jnr course, before the winners are crowned at a glitzy prize giving and closing ceremony in the magnificent clubhouse.



One of the biggest positives of the event is the strong family theme that runs throughout and there are plenty of opportunities for parents to get involved in the event. They’ll be invited to both the opening and closing ceremonies, and also get entry into the pre-tournament Par-3 Parent/Child contest at the Amendoeira Golf Resort Academy Course.



Oceânico World Kids Golf Championship participants will receive preferential rates for staying at the resort, which offers spacious two-bedroom apartments for families of four; two-bedroom apartments with mezzanines; and luxury villas for larger groups.



“The Oceânico World Kids Golf Championship is an event like no other that has gone from strength to strength over the years, firmly establishing itself amongst the upper echelons of Europe’s elite amateur golf calendar,” commented Oceânico Golf’s CEO, Chris Stilwell.



“The 2015 edition promises to be even better than before and I encourage our guests to sign-up quickly so they can experience the unique combination of a summer holiday in one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations and a fun-filled tour-standard golfing environment.”
