Green Built Alliance holds disc golf fundraiser May 4

Green Built Alliance disc golf tournament

Press release from Green Built Alliance:

Local disc golfers will gather next month to enjoy an 18-hole tournament while raising money for a good cause at Green Built Alliance’s third annual spring Disc Golf Fundraiser.

The tournament begins at noon Saturday, May 4 at Lake Julian Park’s 18-hole course in Arden. The event ends with an after party in the park’s pavilion with free food and beer for all players.

The Lake Julian course is beautifully maintained for the public thanks to the hard work of volunteers from the Western North Carolina Disc Golf Association (WNCDGA), whose support makes this fundraiser possible. A workday in late March with volunteers from the WNCDGA and Green Built Alliance, as well as the support of Wicked Weed Brewing, got the course in top form for the upcoming tournament.

Asheville has a strong and vibrant network of disc golf enthusiasts, many of whom are also part of the green-building community and among Green Built Alliance’s membership.

In 2017, Green Built Alliance’s inaugural fundraiser sold out in its first year with 80 people turning out to support the nonprofit and explore the then-new 18-hole course at Lake Julian.

Registration is $25 per player. Along with free food and drinks, participants will receive a tournament-branded disc, and play for the opportunity to win a cash purse, tickets to LEAF Festival or the Biltmore Estate, among other prizes.

All tournament proceeds support Green Built Alliance’s community initiatives and resources.
