The ultimate charity golf fundraiser conducted throughout 2022
between golfers from all over the US
The Joan L. Kidd MD Fight for Life Golf Series powered by Chipd In Golf was born out of a need for the tens of thousands of golfers of all skill levels to have an opportunity to play golf on their time schedule, at their home course or any course across the United States, at their convenience and support their nonprofit during the year in the process. Golfers sign up to play in the FFL Golf Series through a nonprofit, pay a onetime membership fee, create a profile, which includes their handicap index and download the Chipd In APP. Then, golfers can play at their convenience on designated days for events scheduled throughout the year, at their home club or any golf course with their handicap index. A significant donation is made to the designated nonprofit by the Fight for Life Foundation for each golfer participating. During the days of play for each event, there is a live leaderboard that shows in real time how they are playing against golfers all over the country.
At the end of each event, which has a three day window for golfers to play one round, points are awarded to the golfers in order of finish. At the end of each series of events (6), the top 50 golfers in the accumulated points standings move on to an in person National Championship. With two Series, Spring and Summer. a total of 100 players from the points standings move on to the in person National Championship which is scheduled for October 14-16, 2022 at Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando Florida. The winner is awarded a bucket list golf trip for him/her and their golf buddy with expenses paid. Golfers who sign up through a nonprofit will represent that nonprofit at the National Championship. Based on order of finish at the finals, the nonprofit that is represented by the golfer receives an additional donation which is presented to the nonprofit at the event. In addition, the top ten players in order of finish in the Finals will proceed to a 5 hole shootout after the final round, where the last player standing wins a seven day Mediterranean voyage for two aboard the Sea Dream Yacht. www.seadream.com
The National Championship will be a fun filled event with special events, including a Concert by world class entertainers, a production of the Fight for Life Concert Series and nearby world class Theme Parks; perfect for a family vacation.
In addition to all of the other great prizes, all 100 players at the National Championship and a golf partner that they choose, are automatically exempt from qualifying into the King's Cup National Championship in Nashville, Tennessee. www.usgolfchallenge.com Players advancing out of their flight at that two person best ball championship earn a spot on Team USA that will play Team Ireland in the International King's Cup, in honor of Arnold Palmer. The International King's Cup matches between Team USA and Team Ireland are played in an amateur Ryder Cup style format. Players on Team USA travel to Ireland with expenses paid.
During the year, prizes are awarded for each Series event, including random raffle drawings. There are no entry fees to regular season events for golfers after paying a one time entry fee of $150 for the Series, of which a significant portion is donated to a designated nonprofit and golfers of all skill levels can participate with their handicap index.
The FFL Golf Series is currently designating nonprofits to receive donations from the Fight for Life Foundation during the year and accepting inquiries from nonprofits who wish to participate in the program. Participation in this fundraiser program by nonprofits who currently conduct their own charity golf outings is also welcomed as a way to expand their golf fundraising without the need of volunteers, pre event planning or incurring costs.
