KING of GREENS is the first and worldwide only international golf tournament for action sports athletes.
Surfers, skateboarders, base jumpers, snowboarders, skiers and other action sports athletes are addicted to golf. Not only because golf is fun. For them it is the perfect balance to their adrenalin-charged daily business. Many athletes have become rather ambitious in golf and are single-handicap players.
KING of GREENS lives up to the individual lifestyle of the young generation, while paying tribute to the legacy of the game. It offers an international platform for young golfers and motivates others to get in touch with the sport.
„What I liked most? That King of Greens connects different worlds. Not only action sports, but also young golf pros and to see that we all fight and train for the same purposes.“
(Cedric Dumont, BASEjumper and KING of GREENS winner 2013)
