The Australian Men's Interstate Teams Matches are Australia's premier Amateur Team Golf Championships. Each State is represented by eight players who contest singles match play in a round robin format, concluding with a Final.

The first Australian Men’s Team Championship was played in 1894 between NSW and Victoria. The second Championship was played between Victoria and South Australia, while the 1906 Championship was played between Victoria, NSW and Tasmania. It was not until 1946 that all states contested the event.

From 2007, the Women’s and Men’s Interstate Teams Matches were played concurrently in the same city.
