The challenge saw entrants complete four rounds of golf in one day at all four of the Green Circle Estates golf courses: Allerton Manor, Liverpool; Sherdley Park, St Helens; Kirkby Valley and Heaton Park, Prestwich.

The team started the challenge at Heaton Park at 4.30am, finally finishing at 10pm at Allerton Manor, having played 72 holes, walked 25 miles, and having each hit around 400 shots gaining one or two blisters.

Green Circle Estates group operations manager Craig Coley said: “It’s an unpleasant reality that cancer will touch someone we know or love, be it family or friends.

"We’re delighted to raise funds for such a fantastic charity knowing that every penny raised really is making a difference.”
