Asia Pacific Junior Masters

Background

We invite junior golfers from all over the Asia-Pacific to come and spend a wonderful week in the amazing Sunshine Coast, Australia. This tournament gives golfers of all ages and abilities to test themselves against fellow players from all over the region. This will be a stern test that will give some feedback on where your game is at and what further work you will need to do.

The tournament originated from the fact that I was looking for tournaments to play for my son that is comparable to Junior tournaments that is available in the USA. Unfortunately there is not that much available till you are able to get a handicap and play 18 hole competitions.

There is a wonderful tournament in Yeppoon during April - Australian Junior Age Division Golf Championship and then there are some great local events put on by Junior Golf Queensland, Glass House Mountains Jnr Golf Association and The Invincibles Tour for us here in QLD.

However most of these are not comparable to what is available in the USA (not 18 holes, shorter distances, etc.) - so our goal is to put together a tournament that will prepare the kids for what they will face in the USA, to give parents an idea of what their kids need to work on and if they are ready to go and test themselves against some international competition.

We have also been fortunate enough to get 6 automatic spots into the IMG Academy World Championship - so there is definitely something to play for. 

All kids over 12 however needs to be selected by Golf Australia to be able to go to the IMG World Championships - please see Golf Australia website: https://www.golf.org.au/imgjunior
