Teens given chance to shine

Oceanico World Kids Golf Championship was huge success

YOUNG British golfers came out on top in all but two of the age groups at the recent Oceanico World Kids Golf Championship staged in the stunning Amendoeira Golf Resort in Portugal.

Juniors between ten and 17 years of age competed over 18 holes on each of the three competition days, while children under ten played nine holes. Creating the feel of a professional ‘Tour’ event, the tournamet counted each player’s gross score towards their final total, with prizes handed out to the first three competitors in each age category.

In the under-nine age group, the UK’s Alfie Hutton won the net score prize while in the under-12 category, Rowan Carey came out on top in the gross score section.

The Brits in the under-14 category were firing on all cylinders as Tom Ferrer and Nathan Longley won the net and gross prizes respectively while a win in the under-16’s gross category for Nathan Brader concluded the British success on the boy’s side of the competition. However, there was also success in the girl’s tournament as Madeleine Barrow triumphed in the under-16 category.

“We are proud that our storied golf courses, designed by legends of the game, have become the fitting setting for a defining tournament for the next generation of golf stars,” said Chris Stilwell, Oceanico Golf’s CEO. “Congratulations go to all our winners and we hope all the families enjoyed what has been a fun week.”
