WANNEROO Golf Club hosted one of the biggest junior amateur events of the year recently, welcoming golfers from around the state and also from South Korea.

Junior co-ordinator Jay Giles said the contest attracted 56 entrants, with the South Koreans using the event as a warm-up for the Australian Junior Amateurs held a week later last month.

Giles said “the Koreans played very well but just missed out on the prizes”.
