The New South Wales Junior Championships will head to the NSW Central Coast for 2016 & 2017, with Shelly Beach Golf Club and Toukley Golf Club hosting the event over the next two years.
Approximately 300 of the best junior golfers from around Australia will converge on the Central Coast to compete in the event, while their families will enjoy the various activities the Central Coast has to offer.
2016 tournament has multiple events being run throughout the week:
- 2016 NSW Boys & Girls Junior Championship
- 2016 Country Junior Championship
- 2016 Inter-District Teams Championship
- 2016 NSW Junior Champion of Champions
- 2016 NSW State Age Junior Championship
In 2016 Shelly Beach Golf Club will be our major host with Toukley Golf Club taking the role in 2017. Over the four day tournament junior golfers will play at each course before a halfway cut will determine whether they play Shelly Beach or Toukley for the final two days.
Leading local juniors Corey Jones, Jordie Garner & Darcy Boyd are very keen to ply their skills on their home courses and keep the championship trophy on the Central Coast having watched last years championship being won by a New Zealander in the boys and Queenslander in the girls.
“This is a great opportunity for junior golf here and for our region’s tourism, I’m looking forward to the support we’ll get here from our host clubs and spectators, it’s a great week for show-casing some of the best juniors in NSW, nationally and occasionally overseas as we saw last year” said Jordie.
Both clubs are excited to host the event that will showcase their quality venues and the Central Coast region. Jack Newton Junior Golf Territory Manager Mark Ingrey has been working with the clubs, Central Coast Tourism and Central Coast District Golf Association to ensure the event provides great exposure for the region and the development of junior golf.
