Golf Australia has released the 2020 Victorian Junior Event schedule, with Cranbourne, Barwon Heads and 13th Beach Golf Clubs playing host to the premier events.
The 2020 season kicks off with the Victorian Boys’ and Girls’ Championships of Victoria, to be played at Cranbourne Golf Club from 13-16 January. It is the first time Cranbourne Golf Club has hosted the event, with the championship moving from its traditional September date.
The Junior Vic Open will move to the September school holidays and will continue to be played at Barwon Heads and 13th Beach Golf Clubs, from 21-24 September. The move to September alleviates the challenges of playing the event so close to Christmas.
Both the Boys’ and Girls’ Championships of Victoria and the Junior Vic Open will retain their GA National Order of Merit, WAGR and Vic Junior Ranking status.
The Vic Junior Masters will return to where it all began at Churchill-Waverley Golf & Bowls Club and will be played over 54-holes from 4-6 December.
The Murray River Junior Masters will be played at three superb Murray courses in Cobram-Barooga, Tocumwal and Yarrawonga Golf Clubs from 1-3 July. The July date will avoid the busy December period.
The Vic Junior Masters and Murray River Junior Masters will continue to have WAGR and Victorian Junior Ranking status, however GA National Order of Merit status will no longer be afforded to the Vic Junior Masters.
The traditional 36-hole, 18-hole and Rookie Series events will continue as per previous years.
“Golf Australia looks forward to delivering our quality junior program throughout 2020 on some of Australia’s best golf courses,” Golf Australia’s State Manager, Victoria, Therese Magdulski said.
“Our range of junior events for players of varying abilities is something which we are very proud to deliver to our next generation of golfers”, she said.
A full list of events will be available in early November, however Golf Australia can be contacted on 03 8545 6200 or via Tim Witherow firstname.lastname@example.org should specific dates be required.
