Our Mission & Vision

We are focused on growing the sport of long drive from the bottom up. It is our mission to create a fundamentally sound business model for our licensees and in the process create a sustainable foundation for the long-term growth of the sport of long drive.

We provide access to the resources necessary to advance in this sport. Whether it is coaching, equipment, marketing for events, or a general knowledge base, we bring together players, coaches, organizers, sponsors, and fans who wish to advance the sport of long drive.

Philosophy & Style of Play

Comradery, sportsmanship, and support from fellow competitors are the most promising signs of this sport’s potential growth.

Long drivers are like family. They have the common goal be the best they can be at CRUSHING golf balls! Our events are exciting, entertaining, and memorable.

This is all about the fun of using one club, not a bag-full, to see who can hit balls the   longest…inbounds…in a set amount of time.

Long drive is “alternative golf”. It is loud, aggressive, and competitive! Competitors and fans are yelling, there’s loud music playing, and very little reverence to the quiet ambiance representative of the root sport.

“It only takes one'” are the most common words in long drive.
