The Australian Senior Amateur returns to WA for the first time since 2015 with Lake Karrinyup hosting the championship from October 18-20.
As was the case in 2022, this year’s event will feature men’s and women’s 54-hole stroke play events being played concurrently on the same course. Prior to that, there were separate events at different venues – even different states – for men and women.
Widely acknowledged as one of WA’s premier private golf clubs and set amongst a tranquil botanical haven for wildlife, Lake Karrinyup has a strong history of hosting national and international championships throughout its 95-year history.
Lake Karrinyup Country Club’s Director of Golf, Craig Ridge said: “The best players in the world have graced our fairways within the Australian Open, Johnnie Walker Classic, Perth International, World Super 6, WA Open and Australian Amateur Championships, and we look forward to welcoming the best male and female senior amateur golfers from across the country.”
Golf Australia’s general manager of events & operations, Therese Magdulski, said: “It is wonderful to return to the west for our national championship for senior golfers after eight years. The opportunity to play one of the best golf courses in the country will ensure the event attracts the top senior players.”
Entries are now open, with a handicap limit of 8.0 for men and 16.0 for women. Click here for further information and to register.
The event will be closely followed by the Senior Amateur Championships of WA, which will be hosted by Royal Perth from October 23-25, giving interstate players two ranking events to compete in on WA soil.
