Justin Rose Telegraph Junior Golf Championship set to return to Quinta Do Lago

The Justin Rose Telegraph Junior Golf Championship will return to Portugal later this year.

Quinta Do Lago, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2022, will host the final of the 54-hole strokeplay event on its South Course October 31-November 5.

The event will see 24 finalists – 12 boys and 12 girls – compete for the chance to add their names to an illustrious list of previous winners including Ryder Cup stars Tommy Fleetwood and Matt Fitzpatrick, Ladies European Tour members Jodie Ewart Shadoff and Melissa Reid, and Justin himself.

Justin said: “I am delighted to continue my support of the Justin Rose Telegraph Junior Golf Championship as title sponsor as it’s a tournament close to my heart since I won the title back in 1997. It’s fantastic to be involved in the championship, and to have the opportunity to encourage and grow junior, grassroots golf.

“It was great to be at both the 2019 and the 2021 finals and to get a chance to meet all the finalists in person and get out on the course to see first-hand just what these talented youngsters can do. This year, the final will return to Quinta do Lago where the finalists will play the recently developed South Course, host to the Portuguese Open for several years.

“I can’t wait to see the talent of all the juniors taking part in our 2022 championship. Good luck to everyone and enjoy it!”

The Justin Rose Telegraph Junior Golf Championship is open to any juniors aged under 18 at midnight on January 1, 2022 and the finals will be televised by Sky Sports.

Qualification for the competition, which is supported by the R&A, European Tour and England Golf, is open from now until September 5, 2022 and details on how to enter or how clubs can get involved can be found at www.telegraph.co.uk/juniorgolf
