Sophie with her prizes

Sophie, Bill & Bronte travelled up to Sydney to contest the Harvey Norman Sydney Week of Golf which featured 5 rounds played at 5 different courses around Sydney including : Cabramatta, Liverpool, Lakeside Camden, Strathfield and Muirfield.

Quite the challenge to adjust to each course/greens everyday and the girls had very limited knowledge of these courses. Bill played the tournament last year.

How the tournament unfolded:

Bronte played consistently over the 5 days with rounds of 84, 83, 84, 80, 80 (48 over) to finish tied 13th overall and 4th in her age group. Her eagle on the 16th hole (par 5) at  Muirfield on the last day was a highlight of her week.

Bill boasted rounds of 71, 79, 70, 74, 70 (10 over) which put him 10th overall and 6th in his age group. His 2 under par Day 3 effort at Lakeside Camden featured 5 birdies in the first 8 holes.

Sophie had rounds of 74, 79, 70, 73, 69 (2 over) to finish the tournament in 2nd overall and in her age group. Going into the last round she was 9 shots off the lead but finished strong with an eagle, par, birdie over the last 3 holes to close the gap to within 2 shots.

Quite the gruelling week given the traffic, rain and heat/humidity but a great experience nonetheless!
