A range of school golf events occur throughout the calendar year ranging from regional and metropolitan qualifying events in many states, culminating in national finals for the Primary and Secondary divisions.
A brief overview of each of the One Golf States and Territories’ school golf landscapes can be found below.
Primary & Secondary
Each of the districts currently have a varied selection process for both primary and secondary divisions. Some regions hold trial days while others are required to select based off the player’s handicaps because of the vast area that the region covers. Qualifiers will progress to a 54-hole state final for primary and a 72-hole state final for Secondary.
Primary Boys & Girls in grade 5, 6 or 7 who are aged 10 years and over (as at 31 Dec in the year of the event) are eligible to compete in their school zoned 9-hole qualifying competition. A maximum of 10 students from each district (8 metro and 8 country) will qualify making a total of 160 players competing in the Primary School Golf State Final.
