About this tournament

Welcome to the 2021 Lost Plantation Charity Open Presented by Latitude 64!

Our event is benefiting 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 its efforts at https://curechildhoodcancer.org/.

This is a two-round event held on a temporary course set up at the beautiful Lost Plantation Golf Course in Rincon, GA.

PDGA COMPETITION ENDOWMENT PROGRAM

In order to maximize our charity donation, our event is being operated under the PDGA Competition Endowment Program (CEP). This guarantees that all PDGA fees normally required to run an event, plus a percentage of all player entry fees will go straight to CURE!

SWAG / PAYOUTS

Thanks to our generous sponsors, each player will receive an awesome Latitude 64 shirt and custom-stamped Trilogy disc at check-in. All division winners will receive trophies. Pro winners will also receive an additional cash payout. Amateur winners will receive trophies only.

MERCH

Our on-site disc golf vendor this year will be WICKED ACES DISC GOLF! Be sure to swing by and stock up on all the hottest discs and gear available. Thank you Wicked Aces Disc Golf! Visit them online at https://wickedacesdg.com/!

50/50 CHARITY RANDOM DRAW DOUBLES

Join us Friday evening for our 50/50 random draw doubles event! 50% of the buy-ins will go to player payouts, and the remaining 50% will go to CURE. There will be an additional optional $3 ace pot for all players in the doubles match. If no aces are hit, the ace pool 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 wide open and slightly downhill. You will be able to throw just about any kind of shot you want to get there. During the designated round 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 players 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.
