Carlsbad, CA - Polara Golf (www.polaragolf.com) announced today that they will be holding their popular Polara Straight Drive Challenge on Friday June 8th, at Rising Star Casino and Resort in Rising Sun, Indiana for the 4th Annual Greater Cincinnati Regional NFFF Golf Tournament. This scramble tournament is one in a series of nation-wide golf events organized by local volunteers to raise funds for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF).
Polara Golf selects charity golf outings throughout the country to participate with and donates self-correcting golf balls to help golfers of all skill levels hit more fairways, speed up play, correct golf slices and make the day a more enjoyable experience. In the Straight Drive Challenge, flags are placed out in the fairway at 160 yards, similar to field goal posts in football, and contestants are given the opportunity to win FREE sleeves of Polara golf balls for hitting their drives through the uprights.
Polara's Self-Correcting golf balls are perfect for these scramble events and charity outings. They remove some of the frustration from the game and allow even the occasional golfer who normally struggles from a severe hook or slice the chance to have fun and focus on the real reason they are there….to raise money for a great cause.
Whether you’re a scratch golfer or just want to enjoy a day on the links, join members of Colerain IAFF Local # 3915. The tournament is open to the public and the $90 fee includes golf with cart, beverages and food on the course, buffet lunch or dinner at the Casino, awards, auctions, door prizes, and gift bag. There are morning and afternoon start times, and separate prizes will be awarded for both groups, including Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin and Longest Putt contests, and top three teams will receive awards. Morning shotgun start is at 8:00 AM; afternoon is at 1:30 PM. For an additional $60, golfers can participate in both morning and afternoon events.
Sponsorship opportunities are still available for individuals, groups and area businesses. For more information about the tournament, including registration and sponsorship opportunities, go to www.greatercincynfff.org.
In 2011, the NFFF Memorial Golf Tournaments collectively raised approximately $300,000 for the Foundation. The proceeds benefit the Foundation’s mission to honor firefighters who died in the line of duty, provide resources for surviving family members, including scholarships, workshops and conferences, and educate firefighters on preventing future fire service injuries and fatalities.

About Polara Golf
Over 85% of golfers struggle with a severe hook or slice and are looking for a “quick fix” for their game. Polara Golf has the answer, and it’s not magic, it’s physics. The unique dimple design of the Polara Self-Correcting golf ball transforms hooks and slices into longer, straighter shots…GUARANTEED!
Polara Golf is offering four different Self-Correcting golf balls for 2012 - the original Ultimate Straight™ and Ultimate Straight XS™ and the new advanced XD™ and XDS™.
Polara gave the new XD™ and XDS™ golf balls a different lift and drag profile to make the ball fly higher, resulting in more carry distance for golfers who tend to hit the ball with a lower trajectory. Now recreational golfers can choose the ball that is best suited for their game, the original Ultimate Straight™ or Ultimate Straight XS™ with up to 75% Self-Correcting Technology, or the new advanced XD™ or XDS™ with up to 50% Self-Correcting Technology. Depending on how much slice & hook control a golfer needs and how a golfer hits the ball will dictate which Polara ball best fits their swing.
Like the original Ultimate Straight™ and Ultimate Straight XS™ golf balls, the new XD™ and the XDS™ golf balls are designed to cure golf slices and help golfers increase their enjoyment of the game, and are perfectly fine for the recreational golfer to use every day on the course.
Polara Golf uses the best available technology to create demonstrably better products that are limited only by the Laws of Physics. All of the Polara golf balls are designed for use by recreational golfers who want to take advantage of technology improvements designed to stop golf slices to help them enjoy the game more.
