The 2022 Nordic Open Golf Day at Moore Park Golf, Sydney turned out to be a fantastic day with 76 players from the Nordic and Estonian Chambers and more guests arriving for the post game lunch.
This year Sweden took home the trophy with team SignUp Software, the first runner-up was Norway with team 8×8, the second runner-up was Sweden with team EQT Group and the third runner-up was Finland with a mixed team.
We were pleased to welcome the Ambassador of Sweden to Australia HE Henrik Cederin, who participated in the tournament and celebration lunch.
Volvo Car Australia sponsored the HiO with a Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric, no lucky/skilled HiO winner but on the green.
This annual golf day is a great networking and social event in a relaxed setting but the competition for the trophy is on and with the help of the Golf app players could follow the interactive scorecards and live leader board which added to the comp.
The Nordic Open Golf Day Trophy winner for 2022 was Sweden by corporate team SignUp Software, with Magnus Perri, Graham Rout, Lachlan Jones and Gareth Thomas. Runner up was Norway with team 8×8, Brend Johnston, Brendan Maree, Tim Williams and Vahe Hamparian. Second runner up was taken home by Swedish team EQT Partners with Sam Franklin, Harry O’Neill, Harry Brynes Howe and Hyebin Ko. The third runner up team was Finland with Eero Toivanen, Joona Puhakka Joakim Westerholm and Anssi Paatero. Congrats to the overall winners!
The Individual prizes for Nearest to Pin were won by Camilla Bowhill, Sandcaslte Finance and Mikko Mannerkorpi, Wärtsilä. The individual prizes for the Longest Drive went to Hyebin Ko and Harry Brynes Howe both from EQT Partners. Congrats all, fantastic effort!
All players had a chance to win a brand new Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric with a hole-in-one on hole 10. No players were lucky or skilled to hit the hole in one but there were some close attempts. Team Fiskars won the Corporate team draw prize, sponsored by Amire Strategic Digital Marketing. A Harahorn G&T was handed out to everyone who hit the green on hole 15 and there were many great lucky door prizes to be won by all.
New for the Nordic Open Golf Day 2022 was the Putting Competition which took place in front of the club house throughout the day for golfers and lunch only participants. The winner for the 2022 Putting comp was Joona Puhakka from Coredo, runner up was Fredrik Avellen from Optimity and second runner up was Mikko Mannerkorpi from Wärtsilä.
