This year’s Eastbourne College 2015 Foundation Golf Challenge, held at the Royal Eastbourne Golf Club, attracted a record number of 24 teams on 2 July. The teams registered and stocked up on bacon rolls whilst waiting for the early morning rain to subside. The competition kicked off with a shotgun start at 12.30pm and after the odd shower or two the weather steadily improved throughout the afternoon.
The Stewie’s More Stars team won the day and the guests then tucked into a delicious dinner in the clubhouse, followed by the annual charity fundraising auction. Each year the Foundation aims to raise money for the Peter Bibby Award, which funds a bursary for a talented local cricketer to attend Eastbourne College. The auction was hugely successful and the grand total of £20,000 was raised by the very generous participants.
This is one event we’re sure not to miss each year, we’ll see you there in 2016!
