Portugal Open at Royal Óbidos

22 March 2021

The European Challenge Tour announced at the end of January the Road to Mallorca calendar for 2021, which will include 25 tournaments in 15 different countries, distributed throughout the world, including Portugal. The Portugal Open will take place from September 23 to 26, again at the magnificent Royal Óbidos Spa & Golf Resort, and will feature € 200,000 in prize money.

The Portuguese stage consolidates the strategy of the Portuguese Golf Federation to support the professional careers of national golfers, resulting in a maximum of 40 invitations available for them to assign, if the field includes 156 players. Additionally up to 6 more places will be available for elite Portuguese amateurs.
The calendar features a mix of old and new events, from April to November. This year, 20 cards will be in play for the European Tour's 2022 season - an increase of five places compared to the last full season of the Challenge Tour in 2019. The Challenge Tour returns to the Netherlands for the first time since 2009, as well as new events in the United Kingdom and Germany make their debut on the programming of this circuit.
The 2021 season will begin with the Limpopo Championship in April, the first of three events co-sanctioned with the Sunshine Tour in South Africa, and will end almost seven months later in the Grand Final of the Challenge Tour in Mallorca in November.
All Challenge Tour events will be played under the European Tour health plan, which will continue to evolve according to the Government's guidance in the countries where the tournaments will be played.
