Barrenjoey a big hit with the ladies

Over 580 ladies have taken part in the 2017 Barrenjoey Peninsula Week of Golf (BWOG) and raised over $8500 for charity along the way.

Golfers had the opportunity to enjoy seven beautiful Northern Beaches Golf Courses – Bayview, Cromer, Long Reef, Manly, Mona Vale, Monash and Wakehurst. The tournament was very competitive, but players also enjoyed the camaraderie of the event.

In its 35th year, the BWOG is one of the largest and most popular women’s golf tournaments on the calendar. Representatives came from 50 clubs along with visitors from Shanghai in China and the Cotswolds in England. It has now grown to be the second-largest ladies tournament in the Southern Hemisphere and is also a Golf NSW Jean Derrin event.

This year's ever-popular tournament raffle raised an amazing $8688 for the Manly Women’s Shelter.

The shot of the week no doubt belonged to Robyn Mason from Bayview Golf Club who scored a Hole-in-One at Mona Vale Golf Course in the Friday Team event.

The presentation night held at Manly Golf Club, was well attended by participants, sponsors a representative from the Northern Beaches Council, Mr Michael Regan. To celebrate the event’s 35th anniversary, everybody received a small memento to mark the occasion.

During the evening, Judy Manson, President of the BWOG, thanked the tournament organising committee and all of the staff involved at each club for making the tournament a success. She singled out Lynne Robson, the Match Secretary, and chief organiser, for the stellar job she did to ensure it was an enjoyable competition for all.
