The Australian Men's Amateur Championship is contested over 36-holes stroke play qualifying, with the leading 64 players progressing to elimination match play. It is open to players of all ages with an initial field size of 216 players. Its history dates back to 1894 when the (Royal) Melbourne Golf Club began holding an annual event known as the Victorian Golf Cup. This then became known as the amateur championship of Australia. After the formation of the Australian Golf Union in 1898, the Amateur Championship of Australia event was held under its auspices and winners of the Victorian Golf Cup were recognised officially to be Australian amateur champions.
