I was introduced to Golf Tournament Solutions and the Air Cannon when Jay came to a Charity golf tournament that I organize with some friends each year. We hit it off right away and began working on a plan to take the business nationwide. We have had a blast doing it! I am the worst golfer of the group but really enjoy the game - especially when my tee shot is taken with the Air Cannon!

Frank Casto, Partner
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.

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.

Today, we are expanding nationwide through Licensing Contracts as well as hiring Territory Managers and Event Reps throughout the Country.
