2019 10 midlands junior open

The 2019 Midlands Junior Open was played on Monday 30th September at the Midlands Golf Club, with 40 golfers from Ballarat District Golf affiliated clubs and clubs across Victoria competing. Held for the first time, the Midlands Junior Open takes the number of junior tournaments conducted by Ballarat District Golf each year to six.

Cooper Gentle from Rich River Golf Club and Jarryd Martin from Bacchus Marsh West Golf Club played in the same group and produced some excellent golf, both shooting 7-over, with Cooper eventually claiming the Boys Under 18 title on a countback.

George Andriotuis from Latrobe Golf Club and Liam Howlett from Ballarat Golf Club both shot 16-over, with George claiming the Boys Under 15 title on a countback.

Jazy Roberts from Belvoir Park Golf Club continued her recent domination of local junior tournaments, claiming both the Girls Under 18 and Under 15 titles with an 11-over round. Millie Cassidy from Maryborough Golf Club was the Runner Up in both events.
