Penha Longa Resort hosts golf's superstars of tomorrow

02 January 2019

Sports enthusiasts in Portugal will have a unique opportunity to assess golf’s superstars of tomorrow when Penha Longa Resort hosts the Atlantic Youth Trophy (14-17 February 2019) and the Portuguese Intercollegiate Open for the third time from February 09 to 12.

The events, just 30 minutes away from the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, will showcase outstanding golf from players from around the world in the Global Junior Golf Tour (for those aged between 12 and 18) and the 21 golf league (for those aged 19 to 21).

Teresa Abreu, Penha Longa Resort Director of Golf said: “It’s amazing to receive the Portuguese Intercollegiate Open again and the Atlantic Youth Trophy for the very first time. Penha Longa golf course has been the stage for so many international awards and events since its opening that gives us great pleasure to continue with this trend and effort.”

Penha Longa is based in the heart of Portugal’s spectacular Sintra Mountain National Park and was once the retreat of the Portuguese Royal family. This rich history is reflected in the 19th century palace, protected monastery ruins and medieval gardens that have become historical landmarks of both the resort and its two golf courses.

These events will be played on Penha Longa’s famous The Atlantic. Created by renowned designer Robert Trent Jones Jr., the Atlantic Course is a challenging 18-hole, par 72, Championship course with breathtaking views of the surrounding 220-hectare National Park. Penha Longa has long enjoyed a reputation for outstanding golf. The resort recently achieved 19th place in the ‘Top 100’ list of European Golf Resorts published by Golf World and was named the ‘Best Luxury Golf Resort in Europe 2017’ by the Luxury Guide Awards.
