2020 JNJG Tour Tournament Dates Revealed

(12:00pm - Tuesday 12th November 2019)

The 2020 JNJG Tour Calendar has been set, with tournaments once again taking place all over New South Wales to give our junior golfers from right across the state a chance to compete at JNJG Tour Level. 

The JNJG Tour Season begins with the Harvey Norman A.C.T Week of Golf starting on the very first day of the year at Federal GC. The A.C.T Event has once again maintained Golf Australia Junior Order of Merit Status as well as World Amateur Golf Ranking status, with handicap restrictions enforced to ensure the best players from right across the country get a chance to take part.

The Harvey Norman Sydney Week of Golf will once again be played in the first full week of the year, with five of the best courses in Greater Sydney hosting the 90-Hole Tournament from Monday 6th January to Friday 10th January. The tournament gets underway at Twin Creeks Country Club, home of the NSW Open, giving juniors the chance to play the same course the Pro's did only weeks prior.

After two successful years at Charlestown and Belmont in the Newcastle District, the NSW Junior Championships heads way up North, with Byron Bay and Ocean Shores set to host the tournament in 2020 and 2021. It's been more than 15 years since the Northern Rivers have hosted a Major JNJG title, with two of the best and most challenging courses in the district perfect venues for the State Titles.

After two successful years, the 12 Years and Under JNJG State Age Championships will once again take place in Sydney during the July School Holidays, with two new courses set to be announced shortly.

The Biggest Junior Tournament in the country will be held in the September / October School Holidays once more, with Cypress Lakes & Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley once again hosting the Jack Newton International Junior Classic. Almost 400 players from right around the world will head to the Hunter Valley to compete in both Junior and Sub Junior Divisions.

The busy September / October holidays will also host the Fayde Junior Matchplay, with the biggest individual Matchplay event on the calendar returning just in time to prepare juniors for the Encourage Shield and Junior Pennant seasons.

There are no major changes to the Junior Masters Series Events, with nine events in nine different districts across NSW hosting the two-day 36 Hole Events. The Junior Masters Series will take it's show on the road to the Riverina, Central West, Northern Rivers, Illawarra, Lower North Coast, Sydney Metropolitan Area, Central Coast, Far South Coast and A.C.T Monaro, giving juniors from all corners from NSW a chance to play in a "home" Junior Masters.

The final event of the year will once again be the Bonville Champions Trophy, with players trying to win their way to the Champions Trophy at all JNJG Tour Events throughout the year. Bonville Golf Resort will host the Champions Trophy for the eighth straight year.

Team Club events are also held throughout the year, with the Eric Apperly Shield held on Sunday's throughout July & August and the Encourage Shield / Junior Pennant Competitions held on Sunday's throughout October & November.
