But the biggest winner of this special day, to be run in Victoria, will be the Cancer Council of Victoria as they battle to raise much-needed funds for skin cancer research.

Yes, the Longest Day of Golf will test your skills, strength and stamina to the utmost.

The challenge is to successfully complete four rounds of golf between dawn and dusk on a single day in December to raise these much-needed funds.

Golf Victoria and the Cancer Council of Victoria are encouraging all Victorian clubs to promote this unique event to club members and support those players who join in this challenging 72-hole golf marathon.

All funds raised for the 2016 Longest Day of Golf event will fund a skin cancer research study investigating immunotherapy for more effective cancer treatment that is based at Monash University.

Research in this area could lead to breakthroughs in the treatment of tumours including melanoma with $100,000 needed this year to fund this vital research project.

Stableford is the competition format to help ensure all four rounds can be completed.

Beginning at dawn, players can compete in pairs and aim to complete each round in less than three hours to complete the challenge.

While Monday, December 19 is the nominated date for this year’s Longest Day of Golf, it’s fine for the challenge to be played on a more convenient day anytime in the two weeks before Christmas.
