Portugal Golf – 2023 Absolute National Championship of Portugal

Absolute National Championship of Portuguese golf. The Absolute National Championship of Portuguese golf has reached an end

The Portuguese Absolute National Championship crowned some of the best Portuguese golfers

Sofia Sá (+3) and Ricardo Santos (-12), on July 22, won 18,200 euros from the Portuguese Golf Federation (FPG) for winning the KIA Absolute National Championship at the Quinta do Peru Golf & Country Club in Sesimbra, near Lisbon.

Sara Melo (+33) and Tiago Mendes (+29) have both won their respective 2nd Category national championships, while Pedro Cruz Silva (-8) has won the amateur national title.

The KIA Absolute National Championship, established in 2020, brings together professionals and amateurs, female and male, simultaneously awarding the main national amateur and professional titles.

In 2020 there were still two National Championships, the FPG and the PGA Portugal, but in 2021 the FPG took over all the events and created a perfect symbiosis of two events that until then had existed separately: the Absolute National Championship (for amateurs) of the FPG, and the PGA National Championship of Portugal.

Sofia Sá is now a double absolute national champion. She is the only player to have done this since the event started including amateurs and professionals.

Ricardo Santos is a different story. For the first time since the event started bringing together professionals and amateurs, the player from Vilamoura won the title of absolute national champion.

As for Pedro Silva, he won his second title in a row as the amateur national winner.

Portugal Golf – Calendar of the World Corporate Golf Challenge Portugal 2023

Royal Óbidos. Royal Óbidos will host the national final of the prestigious corporate golf competition.

Internationally known corporate golf event celebrates its 30th anniversary

The Portuguese edition of the World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC) starts on the 25th of February. The World Corporate Golf Challenge is marking its 30th year of competition.

“The 30th edition of the world’s largest corporate golf tournament is something to celebrate, and this year is the perfect time for current and future sponsors to connect their names with the event. Strengthening the links amongst the many licenced nations will increase the international reach”, states Golf Concept’s founder Estela Sargento.

For the second year running, Golf Concept will be in charge of exclusively organising this event in Portugal, with a total of 6 events taking place at world-class golf courses.

The first competition will take place at the Amendoeira Golf Resort, in the O’Connor Jnr golf course. The course was designed by Christy O’Connor Jr. and already hosted golf tournaments on the PGA Portugal Tour and the Portuguese Golf Federation Circuit.

After Amendoeira, the next stop on the tour will be at the difficult Quinta Do Peru golf course, which will host two events in this Portuguese edition, on May 19 and 20. Due to a large number of players, it was necessary to create an extra event.

The formidable Ponte de Lima golf course, created by Daniel and David Silva, will feature again on this circuit, on June 3rd. After that, the last round before the final will be held at the Santo da Serra golf course, on June 17th.

The national final of the World Cup of Golf Championship Portugal 2023 will be held on July 8 at the Royal Óbidos, which was designed by Severiano Ballesteros and has hosted the Portuguese Open of the Challenge Tour on many occasions.

The team that wins the National Final will represent Portugal in the World Final, held for the second year in a row on the Spanish island of Tenerife.
