The 100 hole challenge

on 26th June, former club captains Phil Redhead, David White and Kev Whybrew teed off at 4.32 am to play 100 holes of golf in one day over the Notleys course. The aim (apart from getting very sore feet) was to raise money for the Farleigh hospice, the just giving page shows almost £1600 raised but there may be more not included there - well done gents.

I wasn't there to see them off but I caught up with them during the day and again in the evening as they completed their last round, here are some photos of their epic effort.
