Improve Your Long Game

A SunSmart program for Western Australian golf clubs

Improve Your Long Game is a FREE sun protection program by Cancer Council WA. The program aims to improve sun protection behaviours by providing free sunscreen at the 1st and 10th tee. Clubs will also receive further information, resources and support on reducing skin cancer risks to benefit their players.

Improve Your Long Game originated in 2015 from Cancer Council NSW and has made a positive impact to both players and golf clubs throughout the state.

  • Golfers spend long periods of time in the sun during peak UV periods
  • Limited shade on golf courses
  • Grass, sand, water are high reflectors of UV radiation
  • UV levels are high enough to damage unprotected skin most days of the year.
