Twelve members of Icklesham Casuals Football Club completed the 75 Holes in a Day Charity Golf Challenge on Monday 25 June, with Stuart Baker also surviving the whole day as caddy for George Potter. The first ball was struck at Sedlescombe Golf Club at 4.25 am, first light, and the last group completing the 75th hole as the light faded about 9.30pm over the Weald of Kent course.It was a brilliant ,rewarding if very tiring day. There were a few aching muscles at the end. There is a photograph and a report on the Club’s website www.icfc.co.uk

A big thank you to everyone who organised the event and to all the sponsors of holes whose generosity helped to raise over £3000 for charity fund raising.
