Golfers, join the fight!

Ready to support a great cause on your course? We'd like to help. Whether it's a charity golf tournament, ideas for an open or a little fundraising off-course, we can help you raise money for prostate cancer while doing something that you love: playing golf.

What can I do?

HowDidiDo launches HowDoWeBEATit

Does your golf club use HowDidIDo? If so, log on and join the fight against prostate cancer by entering the HowDoWeBeatIt competition.

Simply play golf, and your best scores on all 18 holes of your golf course in handicap qualifying competitions will be recorded to form your eclectic score for the season. All your scores will be backdated to the start of the qualification period (April 1 to September 17), so everything counts!

The top 16 golfers will be invited to a final event from 4 to 6 October at the Trump International Golf Links in Scotland. Entry costs £5, and our partners at HowDidiDo are donating all proceeds to Prostate Cancer UK. 

Sign up for #HowDoWeBEATit

Any individual who can raise over £500 by promoting HowDoWeBeatIt sign ups at their golf club will also win a place to play at the 2017 Prostate Cancer UK Golf Championships at Lymm, Sandy Lodge or Haggs Castle. Contact us at golf@prostatecanceruk.org for information. 

Prostate Cancer UK Golf Championship

We're pleased to announce that we are now accepting entries for our 2017 competition, hot of the heels of our first ever charity golf club championship last year!

Do you have what it takes to be crowned the best player in either The North, The South or Scotland? You'll be helping to raise money and awareness to bring us closer to our goal of making prostate cancer a disease the next generation of men need not fear.

Entering is easy: simply take the golf club challenge by holding a golf day before 1 September 2017 to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK. The winning player from your golf day will earn a place at the regional final in your area to represent your club. Please note that spaces are limited, and we can only offer places to those who raise the most!

The dates

  • Sandy Lodge Golf Club: Monday 18 September 2017
  • Haggs Castle: Wednesday 20 September 2017
  • Lymm Golf Club: Friday 29 September 2017

The finals are supported by our new partners Srixon and will be hosted by Former European Open Champion and Radio 5 Live commentator Andrew Murray, who'll be giving every player a free golf clinic with invaluable tips to improve your swing. Bacon rolls will be provided on arrival, and a sit down dinner after the tournament along with prizes and speeches.

Prostate cancer was not on my radar until nine years ago when my father was diagnosed and later sadly died with the disease. I was shocked to learn that each year 11,000 men die of prostate cancer. Those are alarming statistics and it’s made me want to raise awareness and much needed funds to help more men with the disease. I’ve since decided to support Prostate Cancer UK through the South West Prostate Cancer Open Golf Event.”

Chipping In

From a wayward slice off the tee or an unceremonious dip in the water, mistakes happen to golfers of all abilities (just check out the video below!). But what if those errors helped to save lives?

By signing up for our Chipping In challenge throughout October, you and your golfing buddies can help raise money for our vital work by paying a fine for every mistake you make.

Our special scorecards will help you check off a monetary menu of mishaps, including lost balls, air-shots, three-putts and shots that go out of bounds. Then after the final hole, count up your fines and donate the proceeds to us.

So sign up to get your free scorecards, and start swinging, missing and donating for a good cause!
