Twelve men are teeing themselves up for their biggest golf challenge yet – to play four rounds in one day for charity.

Organiser Joel Wille, Andrew Prior, Ian and Matt Prudence, Gavin Caney, Kasim Beetlestone, Barry Osborn, Gary Carter, James Dack, Phil Goodman, Terence Wilkin and Steve Girdlestone will embark on their mammoth effort in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The friends will attempt to complete 72 holes at Tydd St Giles on Monday, July 13, as they try to raise at least £1,500 for the charity.

Mr Wille, 28, a product developer from West Bilney, said: “Four rounds of golf almost back-to-back may sound like great fun but it will take something like 16 hours to complete. Macmillan do such a great job to help and support a vast number of people throughout the year and cancer, regrettably, is close to many, many people’s hearts.”

Nine of the group are members at the course near Long Sutton – where they play almost every Sunday morning. None of the 12 has a single-figure handicap. To sponsor the group, visit: www.justgiving.com/macmillanchallengetydd/
