About this tournament

Welcome to the 2020 Lost Plantation Charity Open Presented by Latitude 64, benefiting CURE Childhood Cancer! We’re thankful for the City of Rincon, the Lost Plantation Golf Club, the Rincon Recreation Department, the Savannah Disc Golf Association, Latitude 64, and CURE Childhood Cancer for all their support making this event happen! We have an exciting tournament planned!

Our event benefits a fantastic charity, CURE CHILDHOOD CANCER!

CURE is focused on improving the care, quality of life, and survival rate of children with cancer. They have raised millions of dollars to fund cutting edge cancer research, focusing on projects which are likely to have a clinical or therapeutic impact within five years. Through innovative programming, CURE also provides support for patients and their families. Last year, our tournament raised over $3,000 for this charity through entry fees, raffle sales, and silent auction contributions. As you play your round, you will be introduced to 18 children impacted by cancer and CURE. Each hole of the course is named after a child. You will be able to see their faces and read their stories as you play. Please take a moment to learn about each one of these amazing kids and their families and remember that CURE has helped support each one of them.

You can read more about CURE and their efforts at https://curechildhoodcancer.org/.

PDGA COMPETITION ENDOWMENT PROGRAM

Our event is being operated under the PDGA Competition Endowment Program (CEP). This guarantees that twenty five percent (25%) of all entry fees, plus all PDGA fees, will go directly to our charity, CURE Childhood Cancer.

FRIDAY

The course will be open for practice rounds on Friday. You’re welcome to walk the course for free, but I’d highly recommend renting a cart from the clubhouse for $10. The course is lengthy, and there are a few places where the gap between holes is relatively long. Check-in for the tournament will also be open behind the clubhouse near the tee area for ball golf hole number 10. It should be pretty easy to find once you arrive.

SATURDAY / SUNDAY

Players starting on holes 1-4 and 14-18 will be required to walk to their starting holes. Players starting on holes 5-13 will be given carts to get to their starting holes. Designated cart parking areas will be provided on the course and on the map. Carts will be assigned by hole. Players finishing on these holes may bring the carts back to the clubhouse after the round.

TEE ASSIGNMENTS

The following tee assignments are set for the event:

MPO – Long, Long, Long
FPO – Short, Short, Short
MP40 – Long, Long, Long

SWAG / PAYOUTS

DRESS CODE

We want to maintain a great image for disc golf this weekend. Player’s may NOT wear jeans for this event. Collared shirts are not required but highly recommended. Athletic wear is OK as well. Let’s look good out there.

RAFFLE

We have TONS of great raffle prizes available to everyone. All raffle ticket sales will go directly to CURE!

SILENT AUCTION

We will have merchandise available to purchase via silent auction. To participate in the silent auction, place your bid on the bid sheet at tournament central. The highest bidders will be announced at the awards ceremony. Payments may be collected via cash, Paypal, or Venmo. All proceeds will be donated to CURE.

$5K/$10K ACE RACE CHALLENGE

All players will receive automatic entry into our Ace Race Challenge presented by Grow Disc Golf! The challenge will take place on a 300 ft hole that is pretty much wide open and slightly downhill. You will be able to throw just about any kind of shot you want to get there. During round 2 of the event, if you hit an ace on this hole, you will win $5,000! If you hit the ace with a Trilogy brand disc (Dynamic Discs, Latitude 64, and Westside), the reward will be doubled to $10,000!!

All shots will be filmed from the tee pad, and players will need to state their name and disc to the camera before throwing their shot. In the case of multiple aces, the award will be split between the players. Full rules will be placed in the player’s guide at check-in.

ACE POOL

All aces hit during the event (except for the Ace Challenge hole on round two) will be eligible for Ace Pool winnings. To win, players must buy-in to the Ace Pool at registration or at check-in. Winnings will be split between all players who hit an ace. If no ace is hit, this pool money will be donated to CURE.

CTPS

There will be multiple free CTP’s available for all divisions during the event. You do NOT need to buy in to be eligible for these prizes. A full list of holes and eligible divisions will be in the player’s guide.

CHARITY CTP

An optional Charity CTP is available to all player’s at registration or check-in. The winner will receive a special prize donated by one of our generous sponsors. You must buy-in to be eligible to win this prize. All Charity CTP money will be donated to CURE.
