Local Qualifiers

All Local Qualifiers for the 2017/2018 season have been completed. There are only two opportunities left to qualify for the 2018 World Championship:

Thursday August 16th between Noon and 6 PM at Barefoot Resort & Golf Driving Range

Friday August 17th 11 AM til Noon Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) at Barefoot Resort & Golf Driving Range. New registration for the LCQ is now closed except for Veteran Divisions.


Your registration fee is the only fee you will be charged for participating in the 2018 Amateur Long Drive™. You may register at the qualifying event, but we encourage preregistering. Your preregistration is valid at all qualifying events. The on-site Tournament Director will have a list of all “Paid” registrants. We will take 80% of the qualified drives (fractions rounded up) from each division from each qualifier to the Competition Rounds at the World Championship. If you fail to qualify, or get bumped, you may re-qualify (with an additional registration fee) at the same event (if time permits) or at any other ALDC sanctioned qualifying event.

You are automatically entered into the World Championships with a successful qualification. Your qualification is complete (successful) at the end of the set time for the qualifier. For example: If you make it to the end of the scheduled event without being bumped, you’re transferred to the World Championship Competition Rounds.

*In the event of bad weather predictions, we may cancel or reschedule an event. We will make every effort to do this as early as possible prior to an event. Please check this page and our facebook page before traveling for the latest information.
