A beautiful sunny day greeted the 100 golfers who turned out for the 11th annual Marcus Oldham Fundraising Golf Day at Eynesbury Homestead and Golf. Teams worked their way around the course playing a 2 Ball Ambrose event, with food stations, massages, Nearest the Pin, Longest Drives, a St Patrick Day drinks station and a $5,000 Fuel Voucher Hole in One competition, courtesy of Riordan Fuels, to keep them entertained throughout the morning.
Not just a day out for the golfing fan, Marcus Oldham was proud to host internationally acclaimed artist Jane Flowers on the Eynesbury Homestead Verandah for an art masterclass. 12 budding artists were inspired and guided through different painting techniques with Jane, before setting up an easel in the beautiful Homestead Gardens to create their very own masterpiece!
The Golfers and Masterclass participants then joined each other in the Homestead marquee for a provincial style luncheon, in which guests were treated with premium olive oil from Cobram Estate and beautiful wines provide by the Baillieu Vineyard. Geelong Cats Coach Chris Scott also joined the group on the day as our guest speaker and gave some insights into the Cats and their inspiring club culture, before opening the floor to questions which gave the group a look at the AFL through the eyes of such a notoriously private person.
The Marcus Oldham Foundation would like to thank all of those who attended, with the day raising just over $20,000 that will go towards an exciting new fundraising project the College will announce later in the year!
Congratulations to all of our Winners!
