THE PINWHEEL CUP FORMAT
As the benefiting organizations of the Pinwheel Cup, Coastal Coalition for Children and Safe Harbor Children’s Center each fields a team of 23 twosomes to compete on its behalf in a one-day modified Ryder Cup tournament format. Each twosome will be paired against a twosome from the opposing team to complete head-to-head in an 18-hole handicapped match. The front 9-holes will be a best ball format worth 1 point, the back 9-holes will be a modified alternate shot format worth 1 point, and the entire 18-hole match is worth 1 additional point. Team scores will be calculated as the sum of its twosome’s individual points. The winning organization will retain the Pinwheel Cup Trophy until the following year’s tournament and will also take home additional prize money for its organization.
From small businesses to large corporations, sponsors of the Pinwheel Cup help change lives of abused, neglected, and at-risk children and youth throughout Coastal Georgia. In addition to meeting the objectives of both public service and corporate responsibility, the Pinwheel Cup provides an excellent means to show appreciation to current clients, entertain potential customers, and reward valued employees while enjoying a world-class golfing experience.
