Four Prospect Vale golfers are braving 72 holes on the course on Sunday as part of the Longest Day to raise funds for the Cancer Council.
The nationwide event is an endurance golf marathon designed to test golfers skills, strength and stamina by playing four rounds.
All proceeds go towards helping the council's research, prevention and support services and the Launceston group has raised about $2500 so far but is aiming to raise $3000 by the end of the day.
Golfer Richard Deverell said the idea to undergo the challenge came after he saw it last year on television and mentioned it to a few friends.
"We're going to give it a crack," he said.

"I'm guessing we're the first in Tassie to do it, it's only in its second year I believe and hopefully we get some other clubs on board next year.
"It's a good excuse, we love our golf but I think the most we've ever played is 36 (holes) in one day, so it will be interesting to see how we are at the other end."
The group will tee off at 5.30am and play all day until last light.
