The Egyptian Junior Open enters its third year following the Egyptian Golf Federation’s decision to elevate its status to an international event and include it in the World Junior Golf Rankings. This move has significantly boosted participation in the tournament year after year.

In December of this year, the Egyptian Golf Federation plans to organise three major international tournaments, all of which are part of the World Golf Rankings. These tournaments are, in order of occurrence: the Red Sea Team Championship at El Gouna Golf Club, the Egyptian International Men’s Championship at Cascades Golf Club in Soma Bay, and the Egyptian International Ladies Championship, also at El Gouna Golf Club.
