All longdrivers will compete for the title GERMAN LONG DRIVE CHAMPION 2020. A total of two spots for the World Long Drive Championship will be awarded to the men and one spot for the women.

GRAND FINAL
Men: 1st place € 4,000 – 2nd place € 2,000 – 3rd place € 1,000
Women: 25 % prize money for women

Amateurs who finish within the Top 3 will receive high-quality prizes. If no amateur will end up in the Top 3, the committee reserves the right to honour the best amateurs (m & f) with prizes as well. The difference between the prizes for amateurs and professionals depends on the golf amateur statutes.

Allocation of the spots for the World Long Drive Championship:
Two spots will be given to the both winners (men’s- & women’s category) of the GRAND FINAL. The runner-up in the men’s category will also earn a spot. The winner gets the spot only if he makes use of it and participates in the World Long Drive Championship. If he cannot participate, the runner-up gets the spot (move-up procedure). The same applies, when the winner is already otherwise qualified for the World Long Drive Championship. In this case the spot will be given to the next in the classification, who has no spot for the World Long Drive Championship. Those who cannot accept the spot, have no claim for an alternative prize.

Please have a look at the Rulebook of the German Long Drive Championship.

We will not enforce a strict dress code and allow any sports-wear. Simply respect the sport and don’t wear your worn-out jeans from 1993 and please leave your tank tops at home 😉

Yes, balls and tees (100mm and 70mm) are provided. You are allowed to use your own tees.

Actually not. If you still have a question, please feel free to get in touch with us. And keep in mind: HIT IT HARD!
