About this tournament

Join us for the 2019 Lost Plantation Charity Open, benefiting CURE Childhood Cancer! We’d like to thank the City of Rincon and the Lost Plantation Golf Club for hosting this event! This tournament is a great way to introduce the city of Rincon to the sport of disc golf and raise some serious money for charity. We’re all set for July 13, 2019 so mark your calendars!

ABOUT CURE

Founded in 1975, CURE Childhood Cancer is dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through funding targeted research and through supporting patients and their families. Since its establishment as a grass-roots organization, CURE has focused its efforts on improving the care, quality of life, and survival rate of children with cancer. The founders, parents and a dedicated pediatric oncologist, joined forces to support laboratory research that would translate into immediate care for children with cancer.

Since that time, CURE has raised millions of dollars to fund cutting edge research at the Aflac Cancer Center Blood Disorders Service at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Emory University School of Medicine and other top pediatric cancer research institutions - 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.

PDGA COMPETITION ENDOWMENT PROGRAM

Our event is being operated under the PDGA Competition Endowment Program (CEP).

GROW THE SPORT!

Our event is also introducing disc golf to the city of Rincon! The city council has been extremely supportive of the sport and has expressed interest in building a new permanent course. Our event will be the first chance that many locals see disc golf. Come out and show Rincon that disc golf is worth investing in!

Design information will be provided as soon as it’s available! Golf carts are available for practice rounds. Carts will be provided during the tournament to get to your starting hole. Transportation between holes will be provided where necessary.

The course will be open for practice rounds on Friday July 12 starting at 1:00 PM.

FORMAT

The event is scheduled for one day. All competitors will play two rounds of 18 holes. Round 2 will begin an hour after the last card is turned in from round 1.
