Aus Junior heads to The Vines of Reynella
by Golf Australia
The Vines Golf Club of Reynella in Adelaide is preparing to welcome the nation’s top junior golfers on April 5-8, 2022.
The Australian Junior is a Golf Australia National Junior Order of Merit and World Amateur Golf Ranking event, and an important event in the high-performance pathway for Australia’s emerging talent.
Golf Australia’s general manager of events & operations, Therese Magdulski said, “the honour roll is undoubtably one of the strongest across all of Australian golf, with the likes of Adam Scott, Minjee Lee, Jason Day, Su Oh, and Cameron Smith headlining the winner’s list.”
“This year’s event was the first time the boys’ and girls’ events were played at the one course at the same time,” she said.
“The vibe was fantastic and the equal field representation of 78 boys and 78 girls continues Golf Australia’s commitment to providing gender equality at our events.”
The boys’ and girls’ championships each comprise 72-holes of stroke play, with a cut after 54-holes.
“We look forward to returning to The Vines for the Australian Junior,” Magdulski said.
“The club was a fantastic host in 2018 for the Australian Mid-Amateur, so we are excited for the opportunity to now showcase Australia’s best junior golfers,” she said.
The Vines Golf Club of Reynella boasts some of the finest greens in South Australia and prides itself on being “the friendly club”. Located 30 minutes from the Adelaide CBD and adjoining native bush reserves, the club provides a rural outlook close to the city.
The Vines President David Shcomburgk said the club is excited to host the event next year.
“We as a club are proud to have the honour of hosting the best junior golfers in the country, and our course will be in peak condition for the 2022 Australian Junior Amateur”, he said.
“The members, Board and Management are looking forward to making this the best and most enjoyable tournament in the event's history, and we look forward to seeing you in April 2022.”
As an additional drawcard, both winners will receive an exemption into their respective Australian Opens.
Entries are now open, with a handicap limit of 4.0 for boys and 10.4 for girls.
