Lincoln golfers will be taking part in a gruelling 16-hour golf marathon for charity.

Team captain, Jon Rigby, along with three of his friends, will raise money for Muscular Dystrophy, which helps people with incurable muscle-wasting conditions.

Rigby alongside Adam Jones, Steve Rigby and Martin Sinclair will start the Four Course Classic at Greetham Valley golf club moving onto Rutland golf club, Luffenham health club and then Stoke Rochford golf club.

The Lincoln team will play 72 holes and cover 15 miles of fairway in just one day.

Rigby said he is looking forward to the challenge and is expecting to be exhausted after the 72nd hole.

Rigby also wants to raise a lot of money for their chosen charity: “The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is a fantastic charity and I hope we can raise a load of money for them and that other golf fans will sign up to take part.

“It would be great if we could raise the most of any region in the UK!”

The group is among hundreds who are to take part in the Four Course Classic all across the country and are expected to raise over £100,000.
