The New South Wales Junior Championships will head to the Newcastle District for 2018, with Charlestown and Belmont Golf Clubs hosting the event over the next two years.
Dates: July 9th – 13th 2018
Venues: Monday 9th - Mereweather Golf Club (Junior-Am)
Tuesday 10th - Friday 13th – Charlestown & Belmont Golf Clubs
Leading local juniors Jye Pickin, Harry Atkinson and Joshuaa Robards are very keen to apply their skills on their home courses and keep the championship trophy in the Newcastle District having watched last year’s championship being won by a Queensland boy and Sydney girl.
“I have practicing regularly at both courses and played last Saturday afternoon at Charlestown with my coach Ryan Smith. I plan to play at Belmont again before the tournament starts.
It’s a great week for showcasing some of the best juniors in NSW, nationally and occasionally overseas as we saw last year,” said Jye.
Leading up to the event a fundraising raffle will be provided for each golf club to generate funds that support their junior programs. Prizes have been donated by some very keen businesses that would like to see growth in junior players. The tickets can be purchased at all golf clubs on the Newcastle and Hunter region. Tickets are $5 each.
The raffle will be drawn at the 2018 Junior-Am, being played at host venue Mereweather Golf Club. Each group will play with a leading junior in the 4-person Ambrose event. All money raised on the day will go directly into junior golf development programs in the region.
The event’s morning shotgun start will include breakfast, golf with a leading junior, lunch, prizes and the junior raffle draw.
