Preparation is everything

Stay connected

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

Get fit

You'll be playing more rounds than usual and walking many more miles.

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

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 and pack your bag the night before, set your alarm and re-check the weather before you set off.

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 or banners to decorate the clubhouse and let everyone know you're taking on this challenge for Macmillan. Or you can get in touch with our Supporter Care Hub for fundraising ideas and resources on 0300 1000 200 Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
