Where’s a great place for women and girls to learn disc golf while helping put an end to breast cancer? The Throw Pink Rock Hill event, of course.
Returning for its third year, the female only event is from 9 a.m. to noon, Oct. 8th at Fewell Park in Rock Hill, SC. The cost of $15 includes a skills clinic, 12-hole disc golf round, Throw Pink hat, bag tag, sticker, pin, a ticket to the final round of the USDGC, and a charitable donation to Throw Pink.
“The Throw Pink Event offers a fun and casual environment for learning or improving your disc golf game from some of the best players in the sport all while coming together to raise awareness for women’s health issues,” said event organizer Crystal Denning.
Throw Pink is a series of disc golf events across the country that take place from March to October with the goal of raising money for breast cancer charities, while encouraging women and girls to learn and play disc golf.
Following the brief skills clinic, attendees can test out their new skills with some fun and games, followed by a 12-hole noncompetitive round. Attendees can play the round with whom they wish. Prizes will also be awarded for drives closest to the pin.
The clinic will be led by a host of pros including: 4-time World Champ Valarie Jenkins, 5-time World Champ Elaine King, 3-time World Champ Paige Pierce, Deann Donaldson, and Debbie Scott. Pros may accompany groups during round.
Register online at Disc Golf United or in person. Discs will be provided if you don’t have any. Snacks and refreshments will also be available. Plus, Throw Pink merchandise will be for sale.
