Prostate cancer exists in every golf club. Men over 50 most are most at risk, together with black men and men with a family history of the disease. One man dies of prostate cancer every 45 minutes in the UK, and that's one for every 3 holes of golf.
We need your help to beat it. Whether you host a golf day, buy a golf top, sign up to our 8th hole initiative, run a quiz or sell our pin badges in your club house, come and join the fight against a disease affecting golfers across the UK. Check out our top fundraising tips to help beat prostate cancer in your club.

Golf in Scotland - join our committee
With so many beautiful golf courses in Scotland there's no excuse not to get out and play as much as possible to raise money to help stop prostate cancer being a killer.
Our Scottish volunteer golf committee is made up of local golfers willing to share their knowledge and experience to help beat prostate cancer.
They will make direct approaches to your golf clubs, offer awareness talks, information stands and fundraising opportunities to encourage you to enter our Scottish golf championships at Cathkin Braes Golf Club, Glasgow.
We’re always open to hearing ideas and suggestions on how to improve our work and reach more men, so if you’d like to join our committee or have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0141 218 4765.
