GG4C – Global Golf 4 Cancer

Nick Edmund, a friend of the Club, will hopefully be returning to Musselburgh Old Course later in 2022.

Nick is the founder of Global Golf 4 Cancer, a remarkable global campaign whose mission is to inspire the golfing community to ‘fly the flag’ and to support cancer fighters and cancer charities worldwide.

The GG4C flag has now flown on all six continents, and we will be delighted when it once again files on the 4th green at Musselburgh Old Course later in the year.

During his Scottish golf-walk in November 2018, Nick visited Musselburgh Old Course and played the iconic Mrs Formans 4th hole, as pictured above.
