Retail manager Bradley and Calum, a supervisor, are hoping to raise at least £10,000 to support the NHS and also for club captain Rob Murray’s chosen charity, Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland.

The challenge will start at sunrise – around 4.15pm – and end at sunset, some 18 hours later.

The target is to play as many holes as possible, using both the Championship and Struie courses. They will also be setting themselves challenges throughout the daywith the winnings also going to the charities.

The pair are also running a competition giving people the opportunity to guess the number of holes they will manage in the entire day. All guesses should be emailed to RDGC@royaldornoch.com

Their progress can be followed on the day via the Pro Shop instagram.
