Kids to set stage for European Tour Pros at Dom Pedro Junior Masters this summer

04 June 2019

Golf’s next generation will compete over three days for the first time when they tee it up at the Dom Pedro Victoria Course – host of the European Tour’s Portugal Masters for over a decade

Dom Pedro Hotels and Golf Collection, one of Europe’s most renowned golf and hospitality brands, has announced the return of the annual Dom Pedro Junior Masters from 5-7 July.

Set to be played over three days for the first time, all 54-holes will take place on the world-class Dom Pedro Victoria Course – home of the European Tour’s Portugal Masters since 2007 and venue for the professional circuit’s first ever sub-60 round, after England’s Oli Fisher shot 59 there last year.

Competing golfers in the Dom Pedro Junior Masters will be split into two categories, with stableford, gross and net competitions running for both under 10s and those aged from 12 to 18.

With an entry fee of €170 covering three rounds of golf, an evening reception at the Dom Pedro Vilamoura Hotel, lunch buffet on the final day and a prize giving ceremony, this is an amazing opportunity for promising young golfers of all abilities to tee it up on the same course as the pros.

Pietro Dal Fabbro, CEO of Dom Pedro Golf, said: “The Dom Pedro Junior Masters is a fantastic opportunity to help grow the game in the region. Everyone competing will have seen the best golfers in the world play the Victoria Course and now they can follow in the footsteps of golfing greats like Padraig Harrington and Lee Westwood. We cannot wait to welcome everyone to the event in July and think it will be the perfect warm-up for the European Tour’s arrival in October.”
