Matthew Foot announced as
Ryder Cup Captain
Our team competing against North Florida in the Junior Ryder Cup at TPC Sawgrass, will be captained by Matthew Foot, with Valdemar Hundeboll as vice captain.
We have been offered free accommodation at a Golf Resort called Eagle Landing, just west of Jacksonville. Perfect base for training, playing and visiting nearby golf mekkas like Sawgrass, and PGA Hall of Fame and more.
The training camp is planned for 10 days in February around the school holiday. For transport, food and golf we have a budget over £ 600 per head. We have been able to fund-raise almost two thirds of this to make the trip more affordable.
