Golf Channel Primetime Series
Now a Feature-Length Film

Camp AustinThree retirement-aged buddies decide to drive the ashes of their friend to a three-hole golf course in the Arctic.

Their plan is to play golf on a grassless three-hole course at midnight of the summer solstice – the year’s longest day when the light of the endless northern days makes it seem like there’s no end to anything – after a journey of 5500 miles, spanning 17 days, seven US states, two Canadian provinces and territories.

Along the way, they meet interesting people, explore new horizons and discover that the time remaining to them should be filled with adventure and learning.

A six-episode Golf Channel primetime TV series of Our Longest Drive is now a feature-length documentary.  Visit the Shop page to learn how you can acquire the DVD, a movie poster and tee-shirt.

You can view a trailer for the film on YouTube.  Meet the cast on the Travelers page and see them in a funny video on our Kickstarter page.
