Fore-Twenty: Freedom Leaf Cup to Be Awarded at Cannabis Golf Championship
Golfers will be teeing up and smoking out at the Suncadia Resort in Roslyn, WA from August 23-25 where the winner will take home the inaugural Freedom Leaf Cup.
The Cannabis Golf Championship, produced by 420 Presents, will take place at The Retreat located within the resort’s private Tumble Creek community that borders the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.
The idea of the tournament dates back to the early 2000s when construction of Suncadia began. Billed as a lifestyle experience, the “Fore-Twenty Cup” will feature camping, live music, guided horseback rides and relaxing river floats. The site is a natural amphitheater with small solar-powered cabins, virgin well water, a private creek and a secluded beach on Cle Elum Lake.
Just north of Interstate 90, Roslyn is 80 miles east of Seattle and 125 miles northwest of majestic Mt. Rainier.
In 2006, when the resort opened with a course designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer, 420 Presents CEO Shane Lemco signed a 60-year golf contract with Suncadia.
“With full recreational legalization in 11 states, we’re witnessing and are a part of this new and growing industry,” he says. “Trade shows and themed events have become common. Teeing it up at other cannabis-related tournaments around the country revealed a love for the game and a lot of really good players among the community.
“Hence, we’re launching an event featuring cannabis brands from all around the country – including Eden Labs LLC, Marijuana Venture, MainStem and Cannabis Superstore – to compete for the individual and team national championship.”
420 Presents is seeking additional cannabis companies and entrepreneurs to sign up for the toking tourney. Registration fees are $150 per individual and $495 per team. Register here today.
