Event Divisions

the effective age for competition in any bracket is based upon the player’s birthday. Players are eligible (but not required) to move up on or after their birthdates. Any player has the option to play out the season at their age at the beginning of the season. Example: Adult players benefit with the opportunity to play in the next older bracket. Youth players benefit (normally) by retaining the opportunity to remain in the younger bracket. We will not force a player to move up in age during a season.

There will be a Veteran/Military division for both male and female Open, Senior, and Super Senior divisions at the Major qualifying events (USA) and the World Championships. To compete as a veteran, competitors must be a current or former member of the United States or Canadian Military.

There will be an Adaptive Division for both male and female competitors at the Major qualifying events (USA) and World Championships.


Golf Clubs

Golf Clubs must appear on the United States Golf Association (USGA) conforming list and any that do not appear will not be allowed in competition.  Clubs must conform to the USGA Rules of Golf (Appendix ll, 1c), which limit the length of the club to a maximum of forty-eight inches (48”).  All players will be required to have their clubs inspected and cleared on-site prior to competition and will be measured on a Mitchell Golf CLUB LENGTH Measuring Ruler.

Golf Balls

Players are required to use the golf ball provided by ALD at all events.  Players are also required to ensure their golf balls are visible at all times on the hitting deck. Each player hits 6 balls in one set and has 2 minutes to complete the set.


Any legal golf tee is permitted in ALD Competition.


Teeing up the Ball

Each hitter is not permitted to tee multiple balls prior to hitting. Balls must be teed up one at a time in succession after hitting each one.

What if I miss the gird?

The grid is 40 – 45 yards long and balls must come to rest inside the grid. If you miss the grid in all 6 balls a score of 0 yards will be assigned to that set.

Earning Points

Recording Drives

Depending on the venue, balls will be measured either visually for longest ball with laser devices, or by technology like top tracer or full swing kit. 

Qualifying Drives

Each player will be scored based on their longest drives. Qualifying drive lengths may be adjusted for weather and grid conditions at the discretion of the ALD™ official on site.

Actual qualifying drive minimums will be determined on the day of qualification based on grid conditions.

Drives that exceed the length of the grid shall qualify if (in the opinion of the ALD™ official) they are within the established grid width using his/her best judgement or technology.  In the event two or more qualifying drives exceed the grid, and the measurement of those drives are necessary to determine round transfers or wins, the ALD™ officials will use their best judgement to determine the winner.

Scoring Ties

Any drives that are deemed to be in the running as a winner in a division that are within six inches (6”) of each other are considered a tie. IF technology is used to measure distances a tie is within 1 yard of each other.  In the event there are two or more such confirmed yardages recorded, those tied players will hit four (4) additional balls in one minute and thirty seconds (1:30) playoff to determine the final winning drive. A playoff will continue until a winner is determined. If one of the players is not present for the playoff, the player present will be deemed the winner. In any event the above may be overruled by the onsite tournament team based on information and conditions of the day. The decision of the onsite tournament lead is final
