Regardless if it’s been ages since you last threw a disc or you’re an avid disc golfer, the Throw Pink event is just the thing for area women and girls.

Join us at the beautiful Winthrop University campus on Saturday, October 6th for Throw Pink’s 5th event in conjunction with the United States Disc Golf Championship.

Throw Pink is a non-profit with the mission of encouraging women and girls to get out and be more physically active through the game of disc golf. The program was established to make a difference to women’s health-related charities by raising money through fun disc golf initiatives.

Women and girls of all skill levels are welcome! 

It all starts with a disc golf instructional clinic at 9 a.m that will get new players on their feet and refine the skills of those that have played before. 4-time World Champion Des Reading will be on hand to give instruction. A casual round will follow on the beginner-friendly 12 hole temporary course designed by 2018 USDGC Course Designer Andrew Duvall. Everything will wrap up by noon.

The $20 fee includes the clinic, a round of disc golf, a Throw Pink t-shirt, disc, a ticket to the United States Disc Golf Championship (final round is also Oct. 6th.), a discount to the USDGC pro shop, and a charitable donation.

If you don’t have discs, that’s not a problem. There will be plenty available to use. Drinks and snacks will also be provided.

Pre-register online to ensure your shirt size or sign up on site. (Be sure to arrive 30 minutes early).
