Macmillan tees off golf challenge
Macmillan Cancer Support’s Longest Day Golf Challenge is back for 2017 and the idea remains simple – get together with three team mates and tackle four rounds of golf in one day.
You’ll need all your strength, (super) powers and drive to overcome the 72 holes, 300 shots and 20 mile walk involved in the challenge. Seek sponsorship for your challenge and you could swing your way to the prestigious Longest Day Golf Challenge final in the Algarve, Portugal (pictured), in autumn 2017.
The four teams that have raised the most sponsorship money by the 4th September 2017 will quality for the finals of the Longest Day Golf Challenge which will take place at Boavista Golf Resort on the Algarve in Portugal on 13th – 15th October 2017.
Last year’s event saw over 12,000 golfers in over 3,000 teams tee off and raise over £1.5million for Macmillan Cancer Support. Now it’s your turn to grab your awesome ‘fore-some’ and tackle 72 holes in a day for Macmillan.

The average round of golf racks up 13,234 steps, exceeding the daily 10,000 recommendation, golfers can burn 1,564 calories per round when they carry their golf clubs, and one round amounts to 240 minutes of moderate intensity activity
