Metropolitan Golf Club will lead the longest day in 2019 with a star-studded team formation.
Team Metro will have recently been named Golf Australia Chair and Metropolitan Member Andrew Newbold, Australian golf icon Mike Clayton, Victorian State Team Captain Blake Collyer and Golf Australia employee Michelle Hui.
In addition, two of the highly successful fundraising members of the 2018 event club will go around again, in John Hudson and Ken Wilson. A total of nine players will complete the four rounds on Saturday, December 21.
"I'm really looking forward to the challenge," said Andrew Newbold, president of Golf Australia.
"This is a great initiative and Golf Australia is delighted to continue our cooperation with the Cancer Council through the longest day, and hopefully we can raise a number of vital funds to support ongoing research and skin cancer prevention."
The longest day is now in its seventh year. It is a 72-hole endurance golf challenge to raise funds for Cancer Council Victoria. It challenges players to challenge 72 holes of golf on a single day, between sunrise and sunset, and can be played on any day in December.
The longest day is easy to sign up for and lots of fun.
"Golf Australia encourages all clubs and golfers to participate in this valuable goal," said Therese Magdulski, Victorian state manager of Golf Australia.
"Those who participated in previous years have found it an extremely rewarding experience," she said.
