Who doesn’t love a doubles tournament?! When Sara Sinclair was living in Columbia, SC from 2011-2015, she saw an opportunity to create a new event for mixed doubles teams. In 2014, she organized the first Ladies & Gents Mixed Doubles in a matter of three weeks, and was elated that 15 teams showed up on such short notice! That first year, the teams played round one at Earlewood Park Disc Golf Course and round two at Owens Field Disc Golf Course. The teams played disc golf all day, people won prizes and trophies and lots of fun was had by all. In 2015, she decided to step up her game by getting PDGA sanctioning and finding a charity to benefit from any proceeds. This began the event’s partnership with the South Carolina Cancer Alliance.
Although Sara moved to the Nashville, TN area in 2015, she continued to run Ladies & Gents in Columbia, SC until 2019. Unfortunately, the event was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to challenges in running an event seven hours away from home and added limitations due to COVID, Sara decided to move Ladies & Gents to Tennessee in 2021. We are fortunate to hold the event at the private Oggwood Disc Golf Course in Cedar Hill, TN! Starting in 2021, we are also teaming up with a Tennessee-based, cancer-related non-profit organization, Sherry’s Run (soon to be named Sherry’s Hope).
