More than 35 four-person teams enjoyed a great day of golf to help raise money for Eastern Florida State College student scholarships at Duran Golf Club in Viera on Friday.

At the start of the event, Eastern Florida State College President Dr. James Richey thanked all the golfers and sponsors for helping the college achieve its educational mission.
“I want to thank everyone participating today for their generosity and strong support of our college and students,” said Dr. Richey.
