No one has an inside track with the golf channel or it's golf operations to answer?????  Will the LDA be running events?  Does the LDA keep its staff?  Will there be other divisions other than the open?  When & where will the World's be?  Will the golf channel be doing more "player profiles"? , etc., etc., etc.

I keep checking the calender option on this site but it says invalid year option. I didn't even pick a year. So I have no idea where to look for tourneys

Yes and as asked above -- if anyone's got an inside track or person who can be contacted at GolfChannel it would be nice to have the 2016 calendar and notable events posted for all ASAP and unlike how things went down  in 2015 with nothing major formalized and set until way too late in the year --which was the biggest downfall and thing that hurt LD all over the most ,  because of that situation &the  way that  it was eventually done .  Competitors , event hosts , sponsorship , venues need to plan , train, save and book time to do any events so timing is everything this year coming...  I know some have reached out to get info and it's still very vague and unsure who is in charge now at the GC making and concerning decisions , and what's happening now going forward from their standpoint!!

Wow it's Dec already and almost 2016-- all the best to everyone and their families and friends for the holidays and into the new year...

Thank you for your replies I thought i was the only one kept in the dark about all this. I'll keep
Checking back. When was it released last year? Was it released late December or early January for the 2015 season?

The events roll in one at a time as the organizer of each event gets things set; usually over the course of the next 2-4 months.  Sounds like your looking for one announcement for the entire 2016 calendar; doesn't work that way.  This sport stays alive through the collective efforts of the group as a whole.

You're in the right spot.  May not be in this thread.  Ryan Reisbeck (Orion) has done a community service the last few years and started a thread.  I also try to summarize them on the BUILD site here https://buildlongdrive.com/calendar/#listing as they are posted.  Hope that helps a little.  I know everyone is eager for the announcements to start.

Hey guys I have been in talks with a rep from Golf Channel and they are working at putting a schedule together.  I believe some of the past event organizers are going to be a part of the schedule but from my understanding the earliest would be April but most likely May will be the start of the action.


Aside from Golf Channel I know that the East Coast Classic was a really nice event last year to open the year with it and it is currently slated for April 1 and 2 in 2016.  I would check it out.
