PGA of Sweden Enters Into Agreement with Trelleborg Municipality to ‘Help Young People Grow’2 min read


Posted on: 17th Nov 2021

The PGA of Sweden has entered into an agreement with the municipality of Trelleborg for a new Swedish junior venture based on three legs, where a retake of the popular PGA Junior Pro Am is the big news.

After millions of investments the ‘PGA Junior Pro Am – the road to Trelleborg’, will be launched in 2022.

“We are doing this for the benefit of golf. Basically, it is about helping children and young people to grow as golfers and people” Johan Hampf, CEO, PGA of Sweden.

“Affects citizens across the board”

The competition is for juniors born after 2001 and consists of district and regional qualifiers before the Swedish final is played at Trelleborg Golf Club. The municipality has invested resources for something that affects citizens across the board; regardless of age, gender and physical ability. “The aim is to stimulate active leisure and everyday life, and this is part of that vision”, says Fredrik Geijer, Trelleborg municipality Director.

In addition, the series will showcase the municipality’s golf offerings and demonstrate its ability to host an event of this kind. There are three great golf courses in the municipality that have each received significant investment, and the Municipality sees golf as a way to strengthen our destination.

“Helping children and young people grow”

The Pro-Am format consists of juniors qualifying at clubs around Sweden. From there, they go to district qualifiers where they play together with their coach to reach the Swedish final. The final will then be played in Trelleborg in August.

“We are extremely happy to collaborate with Trelleborg Municipality. We share the vision of doing good things for society, achieved through the vehicle of golf” Johan Hampf added. “It is a perfect collaboration where we complement each other well, which enables really strong events to be delivered. The PGA Junior Pro Am is one of the most popular junior competitions but was unfortunately cancelled last year due to the pandemic. With this agreement we are breathing new life into the event. We do this for the benefit of golf, but it’s basically about helping children and young people grow as golfers and people.

In parallel with the competition, a junior development conference will also take place and the existing PGA Championship will be further developed.
