SJM Presents 2024 IMG Academy Junior World Championships China Qualifier – Macau

Fostering the Next Generation of Golf Talent and enhancing Macau’s stature of “City of Sports”

7 May 2024


The "2024 IMG Academy Junior World Championships China Qualifier – Macau," sponsored by SJM Resorts, S.A., concluded triumphantly at the Macau Golf and Country Club last Friday. This event marks the culmination of qualifiers held across Greater China, with the Macau leg serving as the ultimate round of selections. From this intense competition, 20 talented young golfers have been chosen to join 40 previous winners, forming the prestigious Chinese National Team. This team will proudly represent our nation at the "Junior World Championship Finals" in San Diego, USA, where they will compete against top international players, showcasing China's golfing prowess on a global scale.

SJM Resorts has long been intertwined with the golf community, fostering strong bonds with international golf associations over the years. In 2023, SJM breathed new life into the "Macao Open," sponsoring the tournament for three consecutive years and reinstating Macau onto the Asian Tour calendar. As the Official Sponsor and Exclusive Venue Sponsor for Macau, SJM is committed to nurturing the next generation of Chinese golf elites. By supporting events like the "Junior Championship Qualifier," SJM provides young athletes with opportunities to participate on the international stage, fostering connections through sport.

The Macau Golf & Country Club made history by hosting a junior-level event for the first time, offering young players a top-tier golfing experience and valuable international tournament exposure. This initiative aligns with SJM's dedication to the sustained growth of golf in China, contributing to the nation's aspirations of becoming a leading sports powerhouse. Beyond golf, SJM remains actively engaged in sponsoring and organizing various national and international sports events, ranging from martial arts to indoor skydiving, enriching Macau's tourism offerings.

Looking ahead, SJM aims to elevate Macau's international standing as a 'City of Sport' by leveraging the upcoming 15th National Games in the Greater Bay Area in 2025. By connecting these sporting events with state-of-the-art facilities and exceptional services, SJM endeavors to attract top global athletes, their teams, supporters, and tourists to Macau. This strategic effort not only showcases Macau's unique East-meets-West charm and diverse allure but also propels the city's development as a "World Centre of Tourism and Leisure."
