Glenelg to host Senior Amateur
by Golf Australia
The Australian Senior Amateur heads to Glenelg Golf Club in Adelaide this October with a new look.
For the first time, the Australian Senior will feature both men and women playing on the same course at the same time, aligning with the rest of the national championship program.
Entries are now open, and the championship will be played from 20-22 October over 54 holes with no cut. The field will be 156 players (78 men & 78 women).
Glenelg is part of the sensational Adelaide sandbelt that also includes Kooyonga, Royal Adelaide and The Grange, some of the best golf courses in the country.
Close to the site where South Australia was proclaimed, as well as the Glenelg beach and shopping precinct, it is adjacent to the Adelaide Airport and only a short distance from the Adelaide CBD.
It has previously hosted the SA Open, SA PGA and numerous state and national amateur events including Australian Amateurs. The last national championship hosted at Glenelg was the Australian Women’s Interstate Series in 2017, and in 2019 it hosted the Asia-Pacific Women’s Team Championship, for the Queen Sirikit Cup.
