A huge thank you to the 18 teams who took part in our charity Golf Day at the wonderful Downs Course at Goodwood.
It was a fantastic day, made even better by the sunshine and blue skies, but mostly thanks to all those who took part, The Duke of Richmond for making the course available to us for the day and the team at Goodwood who were so supportive to us throughout. Thanks to the generous support and donations received through the day we will be able to support the health, development and education of more young people through cricket, the outdoors and the magic of Arundel.
Following a 10am short gun start all 18 teams set off ready to tackle the beautiful 18-hole course in a Texas scramble team competition as well as putting their skills to the test in a ‘Nearest the pin’ and ‘Longest Drive’ contest.
Our Patron, Antonia Doggart and Director, Tim Shutt, thanked and greeted the teams as they set off in their buggies to begin their round. Tim also borrowed a ‘Woody’ buggy from the Club and spent time with the teams as they made their way through the 18 holes.
When teams had completed their round, a delicious two course lunch was served in The Kennels dining room followed by a prize giving presentation. It was a great effort from all who played. Congratulations to the winning team from IEP Financial for an excellent round.
1st – IEP financial – Patrick Spencer, Damian Pulford, John Stevenson and Simon Tomkins
2nd – Three Bees and a Foz – Peter Bristowe, Johnny Barclay, Johnny Beare and Richard Foster
3rd – Travel Places – Matt Warren, Chris Nash, Sean Heather and Richard Rogers
At its heart, the event was about raising money for our important work in supporting young people who are facing disadvantage. Thanks to the generous support and donations received through our Charity Golf Day at Goodwood we will now be able to reach and inspire more young people through our programmes at Arundel.
