Law firm golfers plan marathon round to raise charity cash.
David Lewis, who is head of Weightmans' Liverpool outlet, and the office's health and safety manager Nick Wilson plan to play 30,000 yards of golf at the start of next week.
They are hoping to complete six courses in two days to raise cash for Claire House hospice, in Wirral.
Mr Lewis and Mr Wilson will be joined by four of their clients, including Paul Smith, plant manager at KME Yorkshire Metal, and David Colvin, from Matthews and Goodman property adviser.
The group will tee off at Pennant Park, in North Wales, early on Monday morning, play rounds at four other courses in the region and finish off at the Padeswood and Buckley course before nightfall on Tuesday.
Pennant Park, Holywell; Mountain Park, Mold; Old Padeswood; and Padeswood and Buckley golf courses have offered the players complimentary green fees to help them complete the challenge.
Mr Lewis told LDP Legal: "We aim to play on six different courses over two days, but this certainly is not a jolly. "We will not use any buggies or caddies, but will walk all 25 miles and cover 30,000 yards of golf.
"This challenge is about raising as much money as possible so that Claire House can continue its work caring for children with life-threatening illnesses."
