I have been building “toy” launchers at a local shop in Ohio for over 30 years. I started with potato guns and air cannons and eventually experimented with modifying existing valves in 1992.

I put together a team to develop a soft foam rocket launcher for Paintball, a T-shirt Launcher, and then a record-setting, 1,100-yard, all-metal, Golf Ball launcher.

I went on to pursue a 'Perfect' golf ball launcher. Today, GTS and I have several patents related to the air cannon.

Andrew Maderia, CMO
My passion for golf came at a young age with my Dad and my Godfather. My Dad always wanted me to join the Pro Tour, but I can't seem to get past a double-digit handicap. Golf tournaments have always been something I've enjoyed with family and friends. Golf Tournament Solutions is the perfect fit for me and something I will enjoy participating in for the rest of my life.

Golf Tournament Solutions History

In 2018 we were asked to provide an on-course contest that no other event had. After searching the Internet, we discovered the air cannons and purchased the equipment. At our first event, golfers loved shooting a golf ball over 300 yards to the green.

Over the years, we constantly worked on improving the air cannon from cheap PVC construction to what it is today, a high-grade, lightweight air cannon that is better than anything in the marketplace.

Our GTS Air Cannon is lightweight, high-grade aluminum and is the envy of our competitors. Our patent on the bent barrel means we will have the best cannons for the next 15 years.

Today, we are expanding nationwide through licensing contracts with entrepreneurs looking to service the golf tournament industry.
