A GOLF DAY LIKE NO OTHER
Like most of 2020, this year’s Foundation Golf Day will be one to remember. Not only did we welcome new event sponsors RB Sellars into the fold but we secured a full house of playing teams in record time. It was the promise of our most successful day yet and then just like that, five days out, Covid19 hit our shores and our 150 guest event dropped down to 100 in the space of hours.
Despite a fall in numbers, many of our regular supporters braved the day, unknowing that this would be one of the last social events they would be attending for many months to come!
As always, Eynesbury weather was on par and guests enjoyed a morning read of the Stock & Land at breakfast, a leisurely 18 holes, on course massages, nibbles of local fineries and concluding with a magnificent provincial style luncheon including superb Bass Strait beef, provided by our wonderful sponsors Greenham. An inside/outside putting green was a new feature of the day and Hamish McLachlan proved to be an absolute favourite, providing guests with a very candid account of his experiences as a sports commentator, from his mentors, interviewing sporting elite and the life lessons he picked up along the way.
All in all, the day still managed to raise just on $20,000 for the “We Need Great Minds” Learning Centre project.
