Tell us about your golf plans

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, 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.

Help us hit prostate cancer out of bounds

If you are considering making us your chosen charity for 2019 or hosting a golf day to help us beat the most common cancer in men get in touch and tell us about your fundraising plans, or give us a call on 020 3310 7231.

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 Haggs Castle, 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 nicola.davidson@prostatecanceruk.org or call 0141 218 4765.


"A double cancer scare has definitely strengthened us as a family"

Bill Elliott and his son James tell us how a family health crisis turned into a national newspaper campaign, then a life-long commitment to improving awareness and treatment of prostate cancer through golf.

"Men United’s brought people together at the golf club who weren’t friends before"

After being diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer, keen golfer David Hadley-Smith was blown away by the support of his family and friends at his local club during his recovery. So when he decided to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK on behalf of his close friend, who was dying from the disease, it seemed like the obvious choice to put on a golf day at the club and encourage other members to get tested, too.
