District Challenge added to junior Amateur

/> In a new initiative for 2016, Golf Queensland has introduced the Fayde Junior District Challenge to be run in conjunction with the Queensland Boy’s and Girl’s Amateur.

The Challenge will be run over the first two rounds of the Queensland Boy’s and Girl’s Amateur at Bargara Golf Club on the 28th and 29th June.

Golf Queensland’s golf operation manager Luke Bates said the junior Amateur was shaping up to be a terrific Championship, now with the added bonus of the District Challenge.

“Golf Queensland is excited to add this representative concept to the junior Amateur and hope that Districts can use it to assist in the promotion of their junior pathway.

“Without the support of Fayde this initiative would not be possible and we are truly thankful for their sponsorship of this new event.”

One boy and one girl will represent a district with each player to receive a refund on their entry and two Fayde polos with district representation noted on the shirt.

The winners will be the best gross score over the two days in both categories. The district/s with the winning boy and girl will receive a $500 Fayde voucher (one for each winner) which can be used by the district on junior initiatives.

Districts will be emailed at the close of entries (1st June) with a request to send through their selected player and shirt size, if Golf Queensland has not heard back within 48 hours the player with the lowest handicap will be selected, contacted to confirm shirt size and have their entry fee refunded.

In addition to the district shirts all players entering the Boy’s and Girl’s Amateur will have the opportunity to purchase a Fayde tournament polo.
