One of the strategic priorities for Ballarat District Golf is to ‘explore further opportunities for boys and girls to play representative golf together’.  We advocated for girls to be included in the competition for the first time and are thrilled that we can now offer our most talented boys and girls the same representative opportunity.

In the month leading up to the Victorian Junior Country Regions, our team will prepare by playing in the 2020 Victorian Junior Pennant competition.

Congratulations to all the players selected.  We look forward to you proudly representing Ballarat District Golf and our 19 affiliated clubs.
