A longest day challenge playing rounds of courses at four different clubs has almost quadrupled its target.

Matthew Smyth, Cameron McCallum and Neil Gilles, all members of Glencruitten Golf club, and Taynuilt golf club member David Campbell also took in Seil Golf Club, and Dalmally Golf Club as part of a challenge fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support on June 2.

They had set their target at £1,000 but so far funds stand at £3,540 with hopes of making it to £4,000 soon.

Mr Smyth said: ‘Things got underway at Seil golf club at around 5.40am on June 2. After 18 holes the boys drove to Dalmally for 18 holes. The biscuits and water were much appreciated!

‘It was then off to Taynuilt for 18 holes, where we received a lovely donation from Carol MacLarty from the club and herself.  Fraser Inglis had also been kind enough to leave the boys some ammunition in the form of a bag of balls.

‘After 18 holes the boys were starting to wilt, however, after a light refreshment from Hamish Matheson they were off to the final challenge at Glencruitten.

‘They teed off around 4.20 pm and, with the help of Cameron’s boys caddying plus some refreshment from Robert Gillies, managed to get in for around 8pm.

‘A huge thanks to Eric Deverill, who was a fantastic host at Glencruitten’s clubhouse. A long day but for a very worthy cause.’
