Four friends from Aberdeen are undertaking the Longest Day Golf Challenge in order to raise vital funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. The challenge, taking place on Friday 19th June, will see the team play four local golf courses in one day. Tee off will be at 5.15am and an expected arrival at the final 18th hole at 10pm.

The group will play Newmachar Hawkshill, Newmachar Swailend, Kemnay and Westhill Golf Club courses.

A total of 72 holes of golf will be played on the day, 300 shots and 20 miles walked as they take on the challenge.

Richard Craig, team captain said:

“We all know someone who has been affected by cancer but even as medical breakthroughs continue and survival rates are higher than ever funding is still needed to continue the fight against cancer. Playing four rounds of golf simultaneously is nothing compared to the hardship cancer sufferers and their families undergo. So we are pleased to help in our own way towards this great cause”
