Macmillan Cancer Support’s legendary golf fundraising event, the Longest Day Golf Challenge, returns on Thursday 21 June and will see thousands of golfers tackle 72 holes in one day. Covering over 20 miles on the golf course, every penny raised through sponsorship will help Macmillan support the growing number of people living with cancer in the UK.
England Golf are supporting the event this year, urging all golfers to get involved, and its staff will be tackling the dawn-to-dusk challenge at Woodhall Spa Golf Club, Lincolnshire.
Kirsty Hobbs, Fundraising Marketing Manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, said,
"England Golf is helping us take our Longest Day Golf fundraising challenge to more clubs and players in the UK than ever before, which is really exciting. We’re hugely grateful to everyone that will be getting involved and helping us support the growing number of people living with cancer."
To add to the excitement, participants can compete to win a three-night break to the final which will be held at Boavista Golf Resort, Portugal. The prize includes flights and accommodation, and will be awarded to the four eligible teams who raise the most sponsorship money for Macmillan by 4 September 2018.
Golfers of all ages and abilities can get involved at a course that suits them. Players will be teeing off at sunrise (4.43am) and playing through to sunset (21.22pm), making the most of the 16 hours and 39 minutes of daylight on the longest day of the year.
In 2017, over 3,400 teams took part in Macmillan’s Longest Day Golf Challenge and raised an incredible £1.7 million.
