Junior Girls Interprovincial - Rotorua

2023 Junior Girls Inter-Provincial Team

Waikato Golf would like to openly acknowledge how proud we are of our 2023 Junior Girls Interprovincial Team, following what can only be described as an outstanding week down in Rotorua both on and off the course.

This is the first time in a number of Years that Waikato Golf have been able to field our own Team of Junior Girls players for this event and again you all did us proud!

On the course, we would have to believe that the performance/result against the Canterbury Team in Round 4 to finish with a 3/3 draw, must have been a highlight with Canterbury going on to eventually win the overall Tournament!

Thank you for wearing our Waikato Golf colours with such pride at the event and we understand that the comradery throughout the week, was also a highlight for all players/managers.

Please find attached our Waikato Team photo, which we hope you will download and keep in a safe place for future referral and show to family/friends and other parties.

A HUGE thank you to Matt Schofield who at short notice agreed to be our Team Manager, with Matt commenting that he had a real fun week with the Team and that the Team will definitely grow with more time together in the future.

Again, thank you for representing Waikato Golf in such a professional manner last week and we look forward to catching up again soon with you all.
