The Queensland Boys and Girls & # 39; Amateur Championship in 2019 will be played at Logan & # 39; s Carbrook Golf Club from Tuesday 2 July to Friday 5 July.

More than 160 boys and girls from Queensland, interstate and overseas will win one of Australia & # 39; s most prestigious junior golf tournaments.

Logan City Council City Lifestyle and Community Committee Chairman Steve Swenson said Logan was proud to support the championship this year, which has gone from strength to strength in the last five years

"This event will play an important role in the development of potential world number one future golfers," said Cr Swenson.

"Shown will be the best of our junior talent and among them are, in our opinion, some wave stars of the future.

"Our city has a proud golf history with the former world number 1 golfer Jason Day, a product of Hills International College in Jimboomba.

"Having the state championships in our city gives our local players the chance to be part of this important junior tournament, including young hopefuls such as defending champion Zubair Firdaus," said Cr Swenson.

"The Malay-born teenager is also a student at Hills College and in 2011 the college champion golf academy."

Luke Bates, manager of the Australian state of Queensland, said that Carbrook, who received the 2018 Junior Golf program of the year during the recent PGA Industry Awards evening, was perfectly suited for the championships.

"We are delighted with Logan City Council's support in delivering this important championship," said Bates.

The first two stroke rounds of the championships, on Tuesday and Wednesday 2 and 3 July, will be contested by 164 players.

A cut is then made through which the leading 50 boys and 20 girls compete for the championship trophies on Thursday and Friday 4 and 5 July.

A great initiative of the championship is the J&R McCracken Plate that allows players who have missed the cut to compete in a separate event for the last two days, guaranteeing those players four rounds with their peers.

The championship is open to male and female amateur golfers under the age of 18, with a handicap from Golf Australia or international equivalent. Handicap limits apply to the championship.

Isabelle Taylor of Sanctuary Cove claimed the title of 2018 girls.

Entries open on Wednesday 22 May via golf.org.au/queensland blonde19459005]

The championships come in the background of Windaroo Lakes Golf Club which insures the PGA Trainee Championships for the next two years.
