| Organisers announce Southern & Northern Hemisphere Challenges
The World Schools Golf Challenge is a once in a life-time experience for high school golfers, their coaches, teachers, families and supporters.
What is the World Schools Golf Challenge?
The objectives of the Challenge are:
To encourage participation and development of golf within high schools and the educational system.
To assist promising high school golfers to continue to develop their skills on new courses and in friendly competition with players from the golfing world.
To provide a solid base for young golfers to plan their golfing future.
To provide educational opportunities and experiences for students with an interest in golf.
To promote the enjoyment and qualities of golf as a recreational alternative for students regardless of their golfing abilities.
Schools are invited to send teams to the World Schools Golf Challenge to experience the sporting, cultural and educational experiences that the region and the tournament have to offer.
| "We believe the World Schools Golf Challenge helps our players grow through sport. The players have been stretched by the competition and enjoyed the diversity of competitors...the reputation of golf at our School has been enhanced amongst competing schools. We see only benefits in our continued participation in this event."

We are delighted to announce the news that April 9th - April 14th 2012 will herald the inaugural Asia-Pacific World Schools Golf Challenge.
This exciting new event will be held in the Mornington Peninsula, south of Melbourne the week after Easter Sunday.
The organisers of the World Schools Golf Challenge made the decision to break out the Southern Hemisphere version of the challenge to cater for schools that indicated they would be unable to be involved due to the long distance travel required to attend the 2013 event.
Accommodation packages and details on Early Bird specials will be available on our website.
Moonah Links, St Andrews Beach Golf Club, and Eagle Ridge are the selected courses for the 2012 Asia-Pacific World Schools Golf Challenge. Moonah Links was home to the 2003 and 2005 Australian Open: the course is world class and has excellent spectator and viewing decks.
"Your event has rejuvenated the interest in schools golf, as you provide an international and cultural experience through the game of golf to help our youth in their development.
Your objectives we support and do believe that your event is worthy of our endorsement. We wish you all the best in making this a sustainable event, one that will grow even bigger than the successful three championships that you have conducted to date." Dean Murphy, Chief Executive, New Zealand Golf
