The 2014 RE/MAX World Championship has seven divisions.

Local and Regional qualifying for the Open Division  begins with a local qualification event (LIKE YOURS) where competitors show up ready to “give it their best shot”. Winners advance to the second stage of qualifying at one of 14 Regional Championships that start in June and finish in August.

Seniors (45+), Super Seniors (50+), Grand Champions (55+), Legends (60+), Masters (65+) and Ladies Division competitors pay a one time entry fee of $1200 for a spot in the RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship, September 20-27, 2014 in Mesquite Nevada and are NOT included in Local and Regional qualifying. Buy-in Division information will be posted in early 2014.

In an effort to conduct the best event possible, facilities will need the following:

A driving range or a hole on the golf course with a minimum of 380 yards long and 40 yards wide.  (If possible, better results are obtained with semi-flat and unobstructed terrain.)

Driving range or practice area for warm up.

Event should be on a Saturday or Sunday, and open for a minimum of 4-5 hours.

Portable radios (3 to 4).

At least 6-8 volunteers to help with operating the event.

One or two specified persons that the LDA can communicate with.

Distribute posters throughout your marketing area.

Complete the Press Release (provided by the LDA) and distribute to local newspapers, radio stations, golf calendars, golf publications, or other media outlets in your area.

RE/MAX International and other national sponsors may have “Hosts” in some locations. These individuals may contact you in advance to discuss how they can support your efforts to make the event a success with special promotion, prizes or other creative marketing ideas. Contact the LDA for further information. This is not available in all areas and is NOT a requirement for our sponsors to be at the local qualifiers.
