Troon Commemorates Breast Cancer Awareness Month

TroonGolfPinkFlag

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Troon Women’s Golf Month at their affiliated facilities around the world. Throughout the month, Troon-managed golf properties will be flying pink checkered flags on their 18th greens to help raise awareness about breast cancer prevention and screening exams and will have various fundraising events to support Play for P.I.N.K., a national charity funding breast cancer research. In addition, and to celebrate Troon Women’s Golf Month teaching professionals at Troon facilities will host introductory golf clinics, virtual events, and creative playing opportunities in October. Now in its seventh year, the goal of Troon’s Women’s Golf Month is to introduce more people to the game, regardless of age, race or gender. Women’s Golf Month is geared towards women, but all are welcome to participate. Troon does not discriminate against anyone.

To help raise funds for breast cancer research, participating courses will hold Play for P.I.N.K. fundraising events including Par 3 Challenges, golf tournaments and clinics, and designate special tee times in which a portion of the green fee will be donated to P.I.N.K. (Prevention, Immediate diagnosis, New Technology, Knowledge), which supports a nationwide network of volunteers who raise money for breast cancer research through sporting and lifestyle events to speed advances in prevention, detection, treatment and survivorship. 100% of the money raised has been donated to Breast Cancer Research Foundation. To date over $62 million has been raised for breast cancer research.

Examples of Troon Women’s Golf Month programming and or Play for P.I.N.K. events include:

  • Kapalua Golf in Maui, Hawaii will combine both initiatives hosting a Play for P.I.N.K. golf outing October 18th on its Bay Course and a complimentary golf clinic prior to the outing. A portion of the proceeds will be donated for Research.
  • The Lodge of Four Seasons in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri will have Play & Stay for P.I.N.K. promotions throughout October. Tee-it-up in October
    on the Cove or Ridge courses will donate $5 of every round to Play for P.I.N.K. Plus book a room night in October and $5 of every room night will also be donated.
  • The La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, Texas GOES PINK for breast cancer awareness with a 2-person shamble tournament on the Resort course October 29th benefitting WINGS, a breast cancer research and awareness association.
