About Amateur Long Drive Canada

Long Drive for amateur golfers is making a resurgence in Canada and Amateur Long Drive Canada is leading the charge. Tour Commissioner and five-time Canadian ILDC champion, Fareen “Far” Samji is at the helm of this charge and is passionate about growing the sport in Canada.

“Canada has so many talented long drive pros that have won multiple world championships, but we have never had an amateur circuit that helps build the sport at the ground level,” says Samji. ” ALD Canada is working towards making the sport of long drive accessible and available to anyone in Canada who drives the ball far and wants a chance to have some fun and compete, no matter their age,” says Samji.

This year ALD Canada held  six events in Alberta and Ontario as a series of qualifiers for every age group by gender. At each event hitters hit the ball as far as they could and earned ranking points. The ALD Canada long drive tour has divisions in all age categories and genders from U13 to 70+.
