GOLF FOR A CURE 2019: Are You ALL IN FOR A CURE?

Courtesy of LWGA, LMGA, and L9GA

Cancer has touched most of our lives in some way, be it personally or through our family or our friends. Over the past 14 years and with participation only from its members, the Landings Women’s Golf Association (LWGA) GOLF FOR A CURE event has raised more than $750,000 for cancer research and equipment and the treatment of cancer patients suffering from all types of cancer.

This year, we are “going big” by inviting all three golf associations at The Landings Club to participate in this event -- LWGA, The Landings Men’s Golf Association (LMGA), and The Landings 9-Hole Golf Association (L9GA). We’re ALL IN FOR A CURE as we try to fill all six golf courses at The Landings Club to beat cancer.

Event Details

The tournament will be held on Tuesday, April 23 (rain date April 30), with a 1:30 p.m. shotgun start on Plantation and Palmetto’s courses and a 1:15 p.m. shotgun on the other courses, followed by a cocktail reception at the Plantation Clubhouse. The cost includes a fully tax-deductible registration fee of $100 per player or $400 per team and a $30 charge for the reception. Both fees will be charged to members’ Landings Club accounts.

The format of the tournament is an 18-hole net team scramble. LWGA, LMGA, and L9GA will have their own flights. LWGA and L9GA teams may play from the Course Name tees or the Skidaway tees. LMGA teams may play from the Medal or Club tees. Prizes will be awarded to flight winners, and there will be additional prizes awarded for closest to the pin and other on-course feats.

Registration opens February 1 and closes April 12. Team captains may register their teams on the LWGA website (www.lwga.net). Tournament proceeds benefit the Savannah Campus of Mercer University School of Medicine in support of cancer research and the Summer Scholars Program.
