Longest Day Golf Challenge

Four heroes. 72 holes. One epic battle. Join us.

We answer your questions

Is there a registration fee?

No, there's no fee for this challenge. We just ask that you raise as much as you can.


Can we buy official Macmillan golf shirts to wear?

Absolutely. To look your part on the course, our partner adidas Golf have produced a limited edition Longest Day Golf Challenge performance polo shirt. To order yours, visit our online shop.


Can we use golf buggies?

We feel that in order to complete the ultimate challenge you shouldn't use golf buggies, we do however appreciate that this isn't always suitable if your course is exceptionally long or you are playing in extreme temperatures outside the UK.

Can we play different golf courses?

Yes, of course you can. It is up to you how hard you make your challenge. Don't forget that this will really slow your progress down, make sure you don't run out of light.

Do we use our full handicaps?

Yes. Scoring is the best two stableford scores in the team per hole, with full handicap allowance. Active and inactive handicaps will be accepted.

If a member of the team does not have an official handicap, are we still able to take part in the challenge?

Yes, absolutely. Please note that if your team were to get through to the finals competition, the player would be required to have their handicaps validated and a certificate obtained.

What tees should we play from?

In order to save time you should play off the forward tees (men - yellow, ladies - red).

Can under 18's take part?

Yes of course, however any teams with under 18's must have at least one adult (over 18 years) in their team.


Are team members able to be changed after we have registered?

Yes - your team captain will receive a link in their confirmation email which will enable them to amend your teams details.

When will I receive my event pack?

All captains will be sent an event pack within 10 working days. The pack will contain event guidelines, sponsor forms and a paying in slip.

My company have agreed to match all/part of my donation. How do I let Macmillan know?

Well done on getting your company to match your donation. To help us to track your matched donation, get in touch with the Macmillan Golf Team at or call on 0844 375 1464 with the relevant information, which you can find on our Paying In page.

Where will the finals be held?

For the sixth year running the finals competition will be held at the prestigious Boavista Golf Resort, Western Algarve, Portugal.

Are all teams eligible for the final?

To be eligable for the final we ask that scores and all sponsorship money is paid in by 1 September 2014.


How are the winners decided?

Your score will be a combination of your team score and fundraising total.
