Golf in Australia
In Australia, amateur golf is overseen by Golf Australia in partnership with the State Golf Associations.
Golf Australia's goal, and that of the respective State Associations, is to raise the level of interest and participation in the game from grassroots golfers through to the elite levels, spectators, volunteers and associated industry bodies.
The State Associations are responsible for the governance, delivery and direction of Golf in their State.
They promote and market the game through a variety of initiatives and programs including State Opens, State Championships at different levels and a range of other events to encourage participation.
The State Associations also deliver Rules training and accreditation, course rating and handicapping, elite training and preparation of State Teams, Squads and representatives.
