To provide SGU coaching staff and selectors an opportunity to assess players and their development over challenging courses that require the full range of shots to be played and in the same conditions 3. To provide an appropriate competition structure and added incentive for U18 players to pursue higher honours. The fomat is stroke play . SGU BOYS ORDER OF MERIT RANKINGS
