Western Australia’s top junior golfers will descend on the South West later this week to compete in the 2020 Drummond Golf 54-Hole Junior Classic.
Harvey Golf Club will play host to the opening round of the tournament on Wednesday, July 15. This challenging layout features a number of dog-legs and has been described by some as a shot-makers dream.
Thursday’s round sees the juniors head inland to Collie Golf Club, a course that has received rave reviews from visitors and is recognised as one of the best inland courses in Western Australia. Set amongst the forest and running alongside the Collie River, this picturesque course is a fantastic addition to this year’s tournament.
The final round of the 2020 tournament will be played at Sanctuary Golf Resort on Friday, July 17. Sanctuary Golf Resort is a challenging layout with plenty of water hazards ready to catch wayward shots which will make for an exciting final round.
The Drummond Golf 54-Hole Junior Classic provides junior golfers with a fantastic opportunity to play on new and challenging courses outside the Perth metropolitan area. Past winners of this iconic South West event include Minjee Lee, Min Woo Lee, Greg Chalmers, Curtis Luck and Brett Rumford. Hannah Green, the current KPMG Women’s PGA Champion also won the event back in 2012.
