The Australian Girls' Interstate Teams Matches for the Burtta Cheney Cup is Australia's premier Junior Amateur Team Golf Championship. Each State is represented by six players with five players contesting singles match play each round in a round robin format.

In 1977 the Junior Interstate Handicap Matches were initiated for competition between State Junior Teams of two players under 21 years of age. In 1986 the trophy was named the Burtta Cheney Cup and the format changed to a team of four players until 1993 when each team consisted of six players under the age of 18. Between 2002 and 2005 the competition was played as 18-hole medal matches, but reverted back to match play in 2006.

Day 3 Report - Final Placings
The Girls’ Interstate Championship placings were finalised with pre-tournament fancy Queensland winning second place bragging rights this morning with a 3.5-1.5 win over New South Wales.

The Queenslanders were relegated to the battle for second after Victoria stunned them yesterday to seal the championship and break the favourites’ four-year hold on the title at Fleurieu Golf Course.

But with three individual halves and wins to Kirsty Hodgkins and Robyn Choi in the No.3 and No.5 matches, the Queenslanders hit back well against NSW.

In the last match of the tournament, Western Australia ensured it finished fourth with a comfortable 4-1 win over host South Australia.

Day 2 Report - Victoria Seals Victory
If you believe golf is played above the shoulders, the Victorian girls’ team is your proof.

The Vics left the highly fancied New South Wales and Queensland teams in their wake today, stunning each en route to sealing an early victory at the Girls’ Interstate Teams championship in South Australia.

And with a bye tomorrow morning, the party started early tonight with manager Jo Charlton promising her charges “plenty of ice cream and chocolate” in celebration.

The Vics entered the week ranked fifth of five teams by the Australian rankings, but that mattered little to the team of Olivia Kline, Stephanie Bunque, Cheerie Tan, Zara Woodbridge, Alex Hilliard and Soo Bin Park who triumphed all four times they played Fleurieu Golf Course at Mount Compass.

“It’s a really testing course and we just told the girls that pars would get the job done,” Charlton said.

“So we just talked about hitting fairways and greens and not much else and that’s exactly what they did.

“It’s incredible and the girls are justifiably rapt – we all are.”

Victoria hung tough in the morning match against NSW, with Park‘s 2&1 triumph over Antonia Gonzalez in the No.5 match setting the tone.

Then with undefeated Bunque and Tan leading the charge in the afternoon, the Big V took down the powerhouse Queenslanders 4-1 to give Victoria its first interstate title since 2007.

“That’s the beauty of matchplay, it’s anyone’s game,” Charlton said.

“They’ve worked really well all week and they’re a great little unit … we’re a happy little camp.
“All the girls have really improved in the past year, but we didn’t expect this.

“You always go in with a bit of faith and do the simple things well and we thought third would be great.

“But once you have that belief, anything is possible.”

Queensland, which has won six of the past eight titles, were confident after off a morning 5-0 win over WA and had Robyn Choi earn the first point with a 3&2 win over Woodbridge.

But after Hilliard and Tan saluted, Bunque set the team into celebration mode with a 2m par putt on the 17th hole to give her a 2&1 win over red-hot Karis Davidson and seal overall victory.

To cap it off, captain Kline then made a birdie on the 18th to beat Golf Australia national squad member Becky Kay 1-up in the No.1 match.

In the other afternoon match, NSW edged past WA 3-2, meaning that WA and SA will play for fourth tomorrow morning, with Queensland and NSW fighting for second.
