Before the event

Preparation is everything

Stay connected

Join our new Facebook group to connect with other golfers taking part and for the latest updates on this year’s challenge.

Get fit

You’ll be walking 24 miles, almost the equivalent of a marathon, so it may be necessary to work on your overall fitness.

Keep sharing

Make sure you keep friends and family updated and keep sharing your team page – let it do the fundraising heavy lifting for you.

Fundraising ideas

Government guidance permitting, organise a gathering, raffle, bake sale or auction at the clubhouse before or after your challenge. Get more fundraising ideas here.

Be prepared

Get your kit ready the night before and check latest Government advice so you know what you need to do to play safely and in line with guidelines.

Involve your people

Invite friends and family to support you on the day. There’s nothing like having a team to cheer you on, mop your brow, deliver snacks and water, or even caddy for you.

Be recognised for the hero you are

Order some bunting, banners and balloons to decorate the clubhouse and let everyone know you’re taking on this challenge for Macmillan.

Look the part
