Illawarra to Host 2014 Subaru NSW Junior Golf Championships

Three hundred eager junior golfers will converge on the Illawarra region at the beginning of July for the annual Subaru NSW Junior Golf Championships. In conjunction with Golf NSW and as part of the Jack Newton Junior Golf Tour, the second of the year’s four majors sees some of the best juniors from across the country battle it out for the title of NSW Junior Boy and Girl Champion. This year the Wollongong Golf Club and The Links Shell Cove will host the four-day event.

The Championships will take place from the 1st-4th July.  The format of play for the first two days will see the competitors playing one round at each course.  A cut will then be made after 36 holes with the top half going on to contest the Championship Cup playing their final two rounds at Wollongong, while those who miss the cut will playoff for the Championship Plate at The Links Shell Cove.

An added initiative for this year is the inclusion of a Junior-AM.  This 18-hole event pairs three amateur golfers with one elite junior player.  The Junior-AM will take place on Monday 30th June at The Grange Golf Club.  All funds raised from the day will go towards junior golf in the Illawarra Region.

“The Junior-Am is being introduced for the first time this year.  Not only is it a great way to raise funds for junior golf in the host region but it also gives our juniors a taste of the responsibilities of an elite or professional player.  We hope to get as many clubs and corporate sponsors supporting the event and junior golf in the region,” said Jack Newton Junior Golf CEO, Peter Van Wegen.

The Illawarra region is excited to host this year’s championship and we know the competitors and their families will enjoy spending time here.  It will be a fantastic week of golf on three great Illawarra courses.  The event is free for spectators.
