After a successful inaugural event last year, Throw Pink returns to Rock Hill, S.C., where women and girls can learn disc golf while helping put an end to breast cancer.
The female only event is from 9 a.m. to noon, Oct. 10th at Fewell Park in Rock Hill. The cost of $15 includes a skills clinic, 12-hole disc golf round, Throw Pink t-shirt, bag tag, sticker, pin, a ticket to the final round of the USDGC, and a charitable donation to Throw Pink.
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.
Last year more than 60 women and girls, many learning disc golf for the first time, took part in the Rock Hill Throw Pink event, which has a casual and relaxed atmosphere.
“It’s a great way to learn something new and have fun with the option to improve your skills with pro disc golfers available,” said event coordinator Kelley McIntosh.
Following the brief skills clinic, attendees can test out their new skills with some fun and games, followed by a 12-hole round. Attendees can play the round with whom they wish. Gift certificates will be awarded to the best finishers.
The clinic will be led by a host of pros including: 5-time World Champ Elaine King, 3-time World Champ Valarie Jenkins, Debbie Scott, Madison Walker, and Krystin Nowicki.
Register online at Disc Golf United. 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.
