Golf Tournament

The National Down Syndrome Congress, and 2020 Grand Marshal Samir Hill, invite you to join us for the 3rd Annual NDSC “All Kinds of Heroes” Golf Classic.   Our 2020 tournament will be held on Monday, August 17th, at the fabulous Bear’s Best Golf Course in Suwanee, GA.  Proceeds from the tournament will support outreach and education programs for people with Down syndrome, their families, and the professionals who serve them, as well as provide free printed materials and resources for communities.

The 2020 in-person event will include golf, breakfast, lunch, dinner/awards party, a “Bottomless Yeti” for unlimited beer, soft drinks and water, contests, and a chance to win $50,000 in cash and other great prizes on 4 hole-in-one opportunities! Registration will open at 8:00 AM with a shotgun tee-off at 10:00 AM.

Just added – Remote play!  Remote players across the U.S. may register to play!  Any 18 hole, par 70, or higher golf course, where players have the option to register as a foursome or individual qualifies for play.  Remote registration is required by August 14 to participate. 

  • Scoring will be tracked by downloading the Bears Best Atlanta scoring app
  • The game must be played on August 17 or will be forfeited
  • The remote experience is non-refundable.

Remote players will be competing against other remote players across the U.S., while Bear’s Best players will be competing against other players at Bear’s Best. Both remote and live players will be awarded first, second, and third place prizes. Prizes will vary between remote and Bear’s Best players.  Both live and remote first, second, and third place winners will be notified on August 17 after all player scores have been finalized.

When all players have completed the course we will gather and stream live on Facebook for the Fire Ball Drop.  All purchased Fire Balls will be hoisted up the aerial ladder of a fire truck, then dropped to the green below.  The ball that lands in the hole first or closest to the hole will win a cash prize.  The day will conclude with and an awards dinner, silent auction, and raffle drawing.

Join our “HEROES” – individuals with Down syndrome, firefighters, police officers, military, teachers and all kinds of every day heroes- in this special annual tournament.
