2024 Discraft Great Lakes Open

Zuca Partnership Announcement

Wednesday, December 13, 2023

Ledgestone TD Nate Heinold is happy to announce that Zuca has signed on as a sponsor for all of the events the Ledgestone team is running in 2024: Champions Cup, Ledgestone, Pro Worlds and DGLO. This announcement is the 5th in our series of announcements titled the Twelve Days of Ledgestone. Zuca has been a sponsor of the Ledgestone event for several years and will be expanding that to include all of the Ledgestone events in 2024 while also becoming the presenting sponsor of DGLO for 2024. “The Ledgestone team is thrilled to be working with Zuca for our 2024 events. I only like to promote products that I personally believe in, so this continues to be a natural fit. I have used a Zuca cart for six years now, and it’s helped me immensely. We are thrilled to expand our relationship with Zuca in 2024 and have them become presenting sponsor for DGLO,” said Heinold. This year’s DGLO event will be officially known as the Discraft Great Lakes Open presented by Zuca.

With the day 5 announcement, Ledgestone is doing a 23% off sale for any Zuca products that are featured on the Ledgestone site. This sale will only run today, December 13th exclusively at the Ledgestone retail website. This discount will be above and beyond any other discounts offered. “We wanted to add some extra value with our 12 Days of Ledgestone promotion this year, and that is why we are offering these daily, exclusive discounts,” said Heinold. 

"Disc Golf Carts for a Better Game" has been ZUCA Inc's mission and focus since the beginning. ZUCA has established itself as the industry leading disc golf cart brand, and with multiple versions of the product, there is a cart for everyone. "It's important to us to support our partners such as Ledgestone, the Disc Golf Pro Tour, The Professional Disc Golf Association and many others who are working hard to move the sport forward. We are thrilled to be working with Ledgestone in an expanded way to present one of the best events on the Tour in DGLO,” said Bruce Kinnee, CEO of Zuca. Learn more at www.zuca.com

Through this partnership, the event will be releasing multiple limited edition carts to support the slate of events the team is running in 2024. With the Ledgestone team running two Elite Series events, the Champions Cup and Pro Worlds, the team needed to come up with new, creative ways to raise funds. The event will be releasing a special version of the Buzzz cart in 2024 to support the Ledgestone event, on top of releasing a themed cart for Ledgestone designed by Michael Barnard. The event team will also be designing a special, very limited Toboggan themed Compact Cart that will be an available upgrade in the DGLO AM player packs. Finally, the team will be designing a limited edition cart with Worlds branding and colors to be released at Pro Worlds. The top level VIP pass at Pro Worlds will receive this Zuca ATV cart as part of their ticket package. The event will also have a small number of these limited carts (less than 50) for sale at the event. Zuca will also be involved in additional ways with the event and plans to have a presence on the ground at some of the events.

Registration will take place exclusively at Disc Golf Scene and will open in March 2024. Spectator passes will go on sale early in 2024.
