Ace for the Cure

Benefiting the Research Towards the Cure for Breast Cancer

The Ace for the Cure is an Ace Race, a type of disc golf tournament where players compete by solely scoring the most hole-in-ones, or Aces. Shots are not counted like in normal play. Players shoot (or throw) two discs from the tee pad on shortened holes and the objective is to make it into the target, or at the very least hit it. All players will be throwing the same discs too. The discs are brand new Discraft prototype discs that are easy to throw and developed just for the event. We are expecting a huge turnout for this year’s Ace for the Cure so make sure you register early! There will be FREE LUNCH for all who register early (date to be announced).

Rules of Play

Players are required to use the player package discs, and only these discs. Players may throw one or two discs from each of the 36 holes, provided they are using their own discs. If a disc is lost, they are only permitted to use their remaining disc. All players should have their scorecards and mark “A” for aces (hole-in-one), and “M” for holes which they hit metal, (Metal constitutes any area on the target, but not including the pole it sits upon).

 

After all players in the group have thrown, discs are picked up and the group moves directly to the next tee. Players keep their scorecards for round two. The player with the most aces “A” after 36 holes is declared the winner. In case of ties, the number of metal hits “M” is used as a tie breaker. If a tie persists, a Closest-To-Pin contest is then used to determine the winner. Both players tee off on one hole and whichever disc is closest to the pin (target) is the winner.

We Can Tackle This!

The Cure Bowl was founded in 2007 to help raise funds for breast cancer research. They partnered with SoftWash Systems to allow in-network companies such as our company, Champion SoftWash, the opportunity to financially contribute towards one common goal. That goal is to raise funds that directly benefit the nation’s highest rated breast cancer organization, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, whose mission is committed to exclusively funding cancer research. Champion SoftWash, along with all the in-network companies in the world, we have contributed more than a quarter million dollars. We at Champion SoftWash decided to take our efforts to the next level by partnering directly with the Cure Bowl. Here in central Florida disc golf is a very popular pastime, and we felt there was an opportunity to marriage a great cause like the Cure Bowl, and a very friendly disc golf community. 100% of the proceeds for the event are donated to the Cure Bowl.
