620 ladies from 71 clubs across Australia have taken part in the 2019 Barrenjoey Peninsula Week of Golf (BWOG).
The tournament, formed by a group of women who felt there was a need to highlight the beautiful courses of the Northern Beaches, has grown to be one of the largest ladies tournament in the Southern Hemisphere.
All grades of golf are catered for, and players get the opportunity to enjoy seven courses – Bayview, Cromer, Long Reef, Manly, Mona Vale, Monash and Wakehurst.
The players excelled themselves all week with colour coordinated outfits and amazing golf at the very challenging northern beaches golf courses.
In addition to the golfing experience, the Committee organises a major raffle with prizes being donated by local business.
This year’s raffle raised $7961.00, which will be donated to the Manly Warringah Women’s Resource Shelter.
The competition events are Stroke on Monday and Tuesday with 18 Hole (Division 3 Stableford), and 36 Hole Nett and Scratch Winners; Thursday Teams v Par and Friday Foursomes.
Presentation night at Mona Vale Golf Club was well attended by participants, sponsors and the Northern Beaches Council mayor Michael Regan made an appearance also.
Veronica Thomas, President of the BWOG, said the tournament was an outstanding success and thanked the volunteers including Linda Lea and her match committee, as well as all participants who took part.
Finally, the Greenkeepers, Greens staff, Pros, General Managers and Office & Bar staff at each club went above and beyond to help the committee run the Week.
