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.
