This time next month, Lynda Pratt and golf mates Bec Morris and Stacy Smithwick will tee off at 6 am for a gruelling 14-hour slog to raise money for the Cancer Council.
The trio, dubbed the Angry Birdies, has entered into The Longest Day, a 72-hole endurance golf challenge which Pratt estimates will take them from sun up to sun down on December 15 at the Maryborough Golf Club.
“It’s a great way to support the Cancer Council, myself and my two girlfriends Bec and Stacy just thought what better way to help, than to raise money by playing some golf,” she said.
“We’ve worked out it will probably take us about 14 hours so we’ll have to tee off at 6 am. “On a normal day if there were four women playing stableford, it’s around four hours maximum for the 18 holes so we’re hoping that with the assistance of a golf cart and there only being three of us that we can at least get the first set done in three hours.”
The Angry Birdies will start the 72-hole challenge at 6 am on Sunday, December 15 and expect to play until 8 pm that same night.
