Aaron Baddeley International Junior Championship
La Costa Golf Club and Resort
December 3-7 2016
Each year we invite 90 junior players, made up of a boys team and a girls team, from around the world to compete over 4 rounds in 4 days. Countries such as, Canada, Australia, China, Japan, Fiji, USA, Taiwan, Mexico, New Zealand, and most Asian countries have all competed at some time in the past 16 years.
Each year, the winning boy and winning girl of the ABIJC at La Costa receive an invitation from Golf Australia, ( the governing body of golf in Australia ), to play in the Men's Emirates Australian Open, and the Women's Australian Open. Aaron, who was then 18 years old, won the Australian Open in 1999 and won again in 2000. Other players who have won the Australian Open are Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Speith, Gary Player, Tom Watson to name just a few. It is the only tournament where a junior can receive an exemption to the professional tournament, The Emirates Australian Open. It is unique, and we are most grateful to Golf Australia for their support of the ABIJC tournament.
A country can send a team of 6 boys, or, a team of 3 girls, or both. Individual junior players can also enter.
