Four long-term friends have taken on the mammoth challenge of tackling four golf courses in one day and raising £3,000 for a cancer charity.
The team played 72 holes on Sunday, July 30 as part of the Longest Day challenge to aid MacMillan Cancer Support.
Teeing off at Inchmarlo golf course at 4.30am, they needed special permission to play before the course was officially opened.
Doubling up the 9 holes in less than three hours, they moved on to play at Aboyne, then the course at Braemar and lastly Ballater where they finished at 8.30pm.
All originally from Aberdeen, the group included Neil Archibald, Keith Young and Graeme McDonald, all of whom undertook the same challenge in 2010– they were joined this year by Mike Robbie.
Mr Archibald said: “We have all had friends and family that have been affected by cancer and MacMillan is one of those charities you feel you should do something for.”
The four courses amounted to more than 26 miles of walking for the men and Mr Archibald praised staff at each of the clubs who let the men play for free, adding: “I would like to thank all the clubs again for allowing us to play and help us raise this fantastic amount for Macmillan.”
