With the sun bearing down, most people would want to be inside with their feet up sitting under the air-conditioner, but groups of golfers will spend a day in December trudging from tee to tee at Wentworth golf club.
While they'll battle heat, sun and losing ball after ball, it's for a good cause as they raise money for the Cancer Council's The Longest Day golf marathon.
Three teams have currently nominated in Orange, one of which is Sam Livingstone.
Mr Livingstone is taking part in his first edition alongside golfing partner Richard Bale.
"All of us know someone who's been affected by cancer and we wanted to do something and raise awareness and money," he said.
He admitted he was a bit worried by the length of the day - 72 holes back to back to back - but as an avid golfer who has a hit each weekend he and teammate Mr Bale are aiming to get all the way round.
The duo are hoping to raise $3000 for the Cancer Council, of which they are a third of the way there - albeit with a large donation set to come from Mitre 10.
Both Mr Livingstone and Mr xx will also add donations themselves on the back of a friendly wager on the result.
"Just to make it a bit more interesting," Mr Livingstone said, laughing.
