Play For P.I.N.K.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Troon®-affiliated facilities around the world

In an effort to raise awareness about breast cancer prevention/screening exams and to raise funds for breast cancer research, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Troon®-affiliated facilities around the world. Throughout the month, Troon-affiliated golf properties fly pink checkered flags on their 18th greens to help raise awareness about breast cancer and have various fundraising events to support PLAY for P.I.N.K.®, a national charity funding breast cancer research.

To help raise funds for breast cancer research, participating courses hold Play for P.I.N.K. fundraising events, including Par 3 Challenges, Play for P.I.N.K. golf tournaments and golf clinics, and designate Play for P.I.N.K. tee times in which a portion of the green fee will be donated to Play for P.I.N.K.

PLAY for P.I.N.K. (Prevention, Immediate diagnosis, New technology, Knowledge) 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. Play for P.I.N.K. donates 100% of its proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Throughout the month of October, Troon-managed facilities will host golf clinics, virtual events, and fun playing opportunities. For more information on Play for P.I.N.K., visit www.playforpink.org.
