Khan Pullen, High-Performance Manager, Golf NSW, was thrilled to announce the teams.
“All of the athletes selected are developing exemplary playing records and certainly deserve the honour of representing New South Wales and the ACT,” Mr Pullen said.
The Junior Interstate Teams Matches will follow the Australian Junior Championships held this year at Tasmania Golf Club in Hobart from April 11th to 14th.
The Australian Boys’ and Girls’ Amateur Championships are played over 72 holes stroke play with a cut after 54 holes.
The 2023 champions will likely receive exemptions into the respective men’s and women’s Australian Opens.
