Events Manager Olivia Wilson said the courses would be a challenge for players with the both worthy of hosting NSW Golf’s most coveted prizes.

“Magenta Shores is a links courses in every sense; if the wind blows, it will test even the best players.

“Kooindah Waters is an outstanding layout, and has been on many golfers must- play lists for a long time. Now is their chance.”

The NSW Amateur is one of Australia’s oldest titles, dating back to the 1800s. 

Past champions include Michael Campbell and Jim Ferrier, who both went on to win major championships.

The trophy has also been lifted by recent winners on tour including, Jarryd Felton, Jake Higginbottom and Ben Eccles. 

England’s Ben Schmidt underlined his reputation as one of world golf’s best prospects, taking out this year’s final back in January against countryman Callan Farr.

The 17-year-old from Yorkshire, England, was never headed in the final, easily winning 7 & 5.

The women’s NSW Amateur is no less prestigious, with a list of former champions which includes Karrie Webb, Nikki Campbell, and Rachael Heatherington.

Grace Kim from Avondale Golf Club who defeated St. Michael’s Kelsey Bennett in this year’s final will defend her crown.
