The Biennial King’s College Golf Day fundraiser, which took place on Friday 26 May 2017 saw a total of 116 players compete at the Royal Auckland and Grange Golf Club.

Organised by the Friends’, the popular event attracted strong competition and provided a wonderful opportunity to spend time on the course with members of the wider King’s College community.

The competition, aimed at all levels of golfer, provided the perfect chance to play on the beautiful parkland layout before the forthcoming course redevelopment. 

The day’s golf was followed by an après golf function with a light supper, drinks, an auction and prizes.

Winning team at the golf day.

The team from Fuji Xerox ended up taking home the top award, led ably by their Account Manager Emily Drumm MNZM, former captain of the New Zealand womens’ cricket team.

All proceeds raised from the tournament will go towards raising funds for the King’s College golf and emerging sports programmes.

Friends’ Committee Member Dougal Francis says the event was an absolute success.  “The funds raised through the day and the auction in the evening exceeded the expectations of those involved in the running of the event.”

Thank you to all of our hole sponsors, suppliers and supporters for their efforts on the day.
