8 July 2016 - The 2016 Foundation Golf Challenge

The 2016 Foundation Golf Challenge saw 21 teams take part at the Royal Eastbourne Golf Club on Friday 8 July.

Following registration, coffee and bacon rolls, the teams set out for a shotgun start at 12.30pm.

The day was fine and blustery, but at least the rain stayed away. On returning to the clubhouse the winners were declared as the team from Handelsbanken.

After the group photo and the prizegiving came the evening dinner and charity fundraising auction. We are pleased that over £16,000 was raised towards the Peter Bibby Award, which funds a bursary for a talented local cricketer to attend the College.

Thanks go to Christine Todd and Lulu Brown in the Eastbournian Society office for all their hard work in preparing for and organising the day.

Photos of the teams are published below. If you would like to buy a high-resolution version of any of the team photos please contact Christine Todd at ct@eastbourne-college.co.uk. All team photos taken by Jim Creighton.
