It’s simple – on the longest day of the year (or another date you choose), you’ll play four rounds of golf to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
No, it’s absolutely free to register. We just ask you raise as much as you can to help people affected by cancer.
Scoring is the best two Stableford scores in the team per hole, with full handicap allowance. Active and inactive handicaps will be accepted.
You can score via our free VAPR app, post your scorecard back to us or upload your score to your team’s page.
Anyone who can play golf. You don’t need to have an official handicap to join in.
You need to book directly with the club. We have a list of clubs who are Longest Day Golf Challenge friendly, but you can play anywhere you like.
Yes, of course you can. It is up to you how hard you make your challenge. Don't forget that this might slow down your progress; make sure you don't run out of daylight.
To save time you should play off the forward tees (men - yellow, ladies - red).
We’d be very honoured! You can buy both men and women’s shirts from the Macmillan online shop.
Yes of course – you can play any day that suits you and your team best. We recommend playing between May and August for the daylight. Scores and fundraising need to be in by 3rd September.
For the ninth year running the finals competition will be held at the prestigious Boavista Golf Resort.
The top four fundraising teams join us for the finals.
All captains will receive an event pack within 10 days of signing up. It will contain event info, sponsorship forms, a coin box and a paying in slip.
This is the unique number assigned to your team – use it when contacting us to make any changes to your team page. You should also reference it when transferring the offline donations you’ve raised.
All money pledged to Macmillan on your team page will come to us automatically.
For everything else there’s a paying in slip in the event pack for you to use at any branch of Natwest, Royal Bank of Scotland or Ulster Bank.
Whichever method you choose it is important that you remember to send us your completed score card and sponsor forms to:
