About

A Must-See Exhibition of Power for a Great Cause

The Endless Summer Invitational is a unique cancer fundraiser that will showcase the world’s longest golfers. In association with Golfers Against Cancer (GAC), this is the 4th year for this event in Southern California. This special two-day event includes a Long Drive Event, Dinner Gala, Top Chef and Pro-Am Tournament. In March 2019 the worlds longest long drive professionals will gather in Southern California to raise money for cancer research. Amateur participants will get front row seats to the power of long drive previously seen only on the Golf Channel world finals. Plus, they will enjoy mingling with long drive professionals at the Dinner Gala and be paired with a long drive professional at Monday’s Pro-Am. Golfers Against Cancer through the power of long drive and in partnership with Golfers Against Cancer (GAC), The Endless Summer Invitational is committed to raising funds for local life-saving cancer research projects that would otherwise go unfunded. GAC is a national organization founded in 1997 by a group of golfers who had lost two of their golfing buddies to cancer. Motivated to raise money to fund cancer research, they created an annual golf tournament with live and silent auctions. In 2011, the Southern California GAC chapter was formed. The mission of this chapter is to establish a funding stream that directly benefits local cancer research. To date, GAC has raised over $20 million for cancer research.

Schedule

Long Drive Event

Click HERE to watch KDOC TV Broadcast

The Long Drive Event of the Endless Summer Invitational will be a unique format. For starters, the professionals will be using drivers that comply with USGA requirements.  We want you to see how these pros hit it with a standard length driver.  Professionals will be playing 18 holes of tournament golf with their amateur teams.  While on the golf course each professional will be qualifying for the final 8 match play finals with 3 qualifying balls on each of the par 5’s.  Officials will be present to mark yardage. Longest drives are defined by the shortest distance left to the hole within the marked fairway.  A laser will be used to calculate distance left to the hole.  The longest drives on each of the par 5’s will qualify for the final 8 match play after the round.  The final match play shoot out will follow Monday’s Pro-Am on Tuesday and include eight players.  Prize money will be awarded based on the outcome of Tuesday evening’s shoot out. During this time chefs will also be competing with their own culinary challenges to be judged TOP CHEF of the Endless Summer Invitational. All judging will be handled by participants and attendees.

Dinner Gala

The event will kick off with a black-tie gala at Seacliff Country Club. The dinner gala is a key element of the fundraising efforts for Golfers Against Cancer. Golfers and their guests will enjoy a special black-tie affair including great food, entertainment and both live and silent auctions—all while mingling with long drive professionals, community and business leaders.  Bring your casino skills because after dinner you and your guest will enjoy a fully equipped casino with all the table games you can imagine. Prizes will be awarded to the top chip winners. 

NEW THIS YEAR- a couple of special guests will be brought in for entertainment. A fantastic VIP comedian will be doing a show after dinner and a MLB Hall of Fame player will be doing a meet and greet with gala attendees. 

Pro-Am Tournament

This is a chance for amateurs to play golf with the world’s longest golfers. Players will be able to choose their team for the Pro-Am but the pro will be determined randomly. However, teams can bid to be paired with long drive professionals who have the best career record. Teams will play a shamble format with the option to play the pro’s drive and use the pro’s score.  All Pro-Am participants are invited to relax and unwind following the tournament by enjoying food, drinks and front-row seats to Monday’s final long drive shoot out.
