About this tournament

Join us for the 2019 Lost Plantation Charity Open presented by Specialty Sports, benefiting CURE Childhood Cancer! We’d like to thank the City of Rincon, The Rincon Recreation Department, 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 a tremendous charity, CURE Childhood Cancer. 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 EVENT

This is a one-day C-tier sanctioned disc golf tournament using the beautiful Lost Plantation Golf in Rincon, GA. The event is being operated under the PDGA’s Competition Endowment Program which guarantees the following:

- The PDGA will donate their $2 per player fee to CURE.

- The event will match the PDGA fee and donate an additional $2 per player to CURE.

- 25% of the remaining entry fee (minus greens fees) from each player will go directly to our charity, CURE.

- The remaining balance of the entry fees will be used for player payouts!

Additionally, donations through our sponsors will be used to cover tournament cost (greens fees) and prizes. This allows more of your entry fee to go directly to charity and increases our total donation to CURE! Interested in becoming a sponsor? Read more in the Sponsorship section below!

Per the PDGA CEP program requirements, a full tournament turnout guarantees a minimum donation of nearly $1,500 to CURE from entry fees alone! So tell your friends about this event and come out and play!

PRIZES

Prize payouts for amateurs will be provided via credits for merchandise through our title sponsor Specialty Sports. Pros will be playing for CASH! Trophies will also be provided to division winners from our sponsor The Carving Plane!

Golf carts will be provided for the tournament, and the clubhouse features a full restaurant for breakfast and lunch.
