The Junior Academy Project is directed to young people between 6 and 25 years old. The mission of our academy is to make the practice of golf a unique learning experience. At Quinta do Perú we believe that youth is the future, and that trough golfing they can learn valuable skills for their future as adults. When joining our Junior Academy, we can guarantee you will find team spirit and you will have fun, but most important of all you will have a group of friends for life.
Nowadays our academy has 35 members that play in the “sub-10 etc. “categories” (…). A lot of our students play on tournaments of the National Federation of Golf and even represent Portugal in international competitions as member of the National Team.
Our Academy has an irrefutable legacy of training national players of reference. Our ex-student Pedro Figueiredo left Portugal to attend the University of California, Los Angeles with a golf scholarship. Today, Pedro plays in the European Tour. We also highlight Magda Carrilho’s career, she is part of the National Team and has won several titles. Sofia Câmara is also on the National Team, she is the Absolute National Vice-champion, National Youth Champion and Winner of the FPG Cup.

As an international level she has several wins at the World Kids (2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016), winner of the International Youth Cup of Austria and E.Leclerc Open-Drive of Toulouse. This year Leonor began her studies at the University of South Florida with a golf scholarship.
João Pinto Bastos is the current club champion. After playing a season in the Alps Tour, he managed to obtain his professional status. The next year Pedro will play in the 5th division of the Pro Golf Tour.
With these numerous cases of success, it is undeniable that the Quinta do Perú’s Junior Academy is the best school for the youth to be one step closer to a bright future in golf.
