Tydd St Giles Golf Club provided Christmas joy to pupils at a Wisbech school at their festive competition.
The club raised £2,383.67 for their chosen charity of the year, Meadowgate Academy, after senior players took part in a 13-hole challenge and enjoyed a Christmas lunch.
Golfers also helped fundraise for other charities, including Cancer Research and the East Anglia Air Ambulance.
Matt Gill, from Meadowgate Academy, said: 'The academy takes on young people with physical and learning difficulties from the ages of two to 19.
'The donation would go towards the academy buying an adapted bus, which would help to enrich the young people's lives.'
In the 13-hole competition, Michael McCleery finished top, followed by Tim Martin and Roger Lancaster in second and third place.
