With skin cancer rife in golf, it makes sense that sun protection is promoted within your health and safety policies.  If you could be doing more, or want to do it better, we have the solution.

About our campaign

Slip! Slap! Swing! is the UK’s leading sun protection campaign for golf, created by the Melanoma Fund in 2019, and widely supported by the industry, helping keep skin cancer OFF the fairway.
