Solar Cannabis Co. Announces Inaugural “Solar Invitational”, A Disc Golf Tournament and B2B Networking Event at Maple Hill on Thursday, September 15, 2022
Massachusetts-Based Cannabis Operator to Host Industry B2B Mixer Featuring Food & Beverage, Live Music and Scramble-Style Disc Golf Tournament at World’s Top-Rated Course
SOMERSET, Mass. (August 5, 2022) Solar Cannabis Co. (Solar) today announced its inaugural “Solar Invitational” Disc Golf Tournament and Cannabis Industry Networking Event at Maple Hill in Leicester, MA on Thursday, September 15, 2022 from 2 PM – 8 PM.
Solar (a leading vertically integrated cannabis operator in the State of Massachusetts) is set to launch its very own “Solar Invitational” – a cannabis industry disc golf tournament at Maple Hill, the world’s top-rated course. The event will welcome all industry operators, vendors and advocates to partake in a scramble-style tournament, while enjoying a cannabis-friendly environment with a wide variety of local food and beverage vendors and live music.
“We couldn’t be more proud to bring a first-of-its-kind event centered around disc golf and cannabis to the greater Worcester community,“ said Edward Dow, CEO of Solar Cannabis Co. “We wanted to create a unique experience that would be inclusive of all operators, vendors and supporters within the cannabis industry and build it around a day of fun and competitive disc golf play.”
The inaugural Solar Invitational is aimed to defy the stereotypical corporate outings and B2B networking events. Competition play is a mixed foursome comprising 18 total teams on Maple Hill’s intermediate “reds course.” There will be no shortage of opportunities to engage with high-minded individuals from all areas of the industry. Every attendee is guaranteed to leave with new, genuine connections, good conversation, some laughs, and a larger network.
“I really believe there’s a distinct connection between cannabis and disc golf,” said Dow. “We want everyone that will be attending to enjoy a relaxed, cannabis-friendly environment with great vendors, food and drink and live entertainment. Even if they choose to not participate in the tournament, they’re going to have a great time and leave with some new connections within the industry.”

The disc golf movement, which has been known to evolve from the “hippie culture” in Southern California nearly 40 years ago, is now an established sport with millions of players and massively-attended national and international tournaments. Over its evolution, the nature of the game has created an inclusive and casual sport where individuals who tend to seek an alternative to “the links” can play a more laid-back, but competitive game.
