Junior European Open
2016 Champions Week Finals Video
Today's Juniors, Tomorrow's Champions
The Junior European Open (first staged in 1993) in association with Sky Sports is widely believed to be the toughest test in junior golf in Europe as the Champions Week Finals in Andalucia, Spain are staged over five rounds including Finca Cortesin, 3-times venue for the Volvo World Matchplay.
This is an individual strokeplay event played off scratch open to boys and girls. There is no handicap limit.
There are two ways to enter this event:
1- All UK golf clubs are invited to nominate up to SIX juniors (boys and/or girls) to go forward into the Regional Finals.
2- Entries are also acceptable from individuals to play in the Regional Finals.
The qualifiers (the top two boys and one girl) from all Regional Finals (listed below) go straight to the Champions Week Finals in Spain in November. Therefore, one round of golf is all that is required to qualify for the Champions Week Finals in Spain- there is no other junior event in Europe that offers such a prize and opportunity just after one qualifier.
Those juniors who just miss out on qualification at their first attempt, will be able to enter again (up to three times); subject to availability.
Eligibility to take part in 2017:
Boys born on or after 1/1/2000
Girls born on or after 1/1/1999
Entry Fee: £39 per player
The top two boys and one girl from all Regional Finals win the trip to our week-long Champions Week Finals in Spain in November. As part of their prize, they will receive the following: all green fees (minimum of four rounds plus a fifth for those who make the cut), 7-nights first-class accommodation, daily transfers to the golf clubs, specially commissioned individually personalised trophies to all the finalists and prize-presentation dinner with drinks. Flights to Spain are not included. The total value of the prize will be in line with the R&A Rules on Amateur Status. There are also prizes on each day for the best NET scores.
