About KING of GREENS

KING of GREENS connects two at first sight contrary worlds: traditional golf and modern action sports. This is an opportunity for action sports athletes to compete against athletes with all sorts of different backgrounds in one equally unknown sport. “KING of GREENS is the perfect opportunity for me to play a professional Tournament in my second favorite sport”, says professional Snowboarder and 2014 Olympic Games participant Konstantin Schad. Konstantin belongs to the group of action sports athletes who use golf as a balance to their high adrenaline level on a day-to-day basis. In addition, golf is intentionally integrated in the workout plans of athletes with high risk factors to strengthen mental stability and to improve complex body movements. 

NINE & One Golf GbR, the founders and initiators of KING of GREENS, recognized the changes in golf early: today golf no longer carries the image of being elitist and stuffy. In contrary, it found its new home in the lifestyle of the young and active generation. These supposedly existing contradictions, which collide at the KING of GREENS, are an expression of the changing image! 

KING of GREENS, is the first and only international golf tournament for professional action sports athletes. It was held at Golfclub Gut Thailing near Munich on June 25, 2013 for the first time. In 2014 we can offer surfers, snowboarders, mountain bikers, base jumpers and all other kinds of adrenaline athletes the opportunity to compete with their peers and elect the best golf player of the scene for the second time in Windlesham by London. Last year KING of GREENS not only combined the two contrary sports as an event but also by placing the date in between the BMW International Open (June 18-23) and the summer X-Games (June 27-30), which took place in Munich in 2013 for the first time.

Also this year the time is right: just one day after we crown the new KING of GREENS 2014 the BMW PGA Championship will take place on the nearby Wentworth Golf Course on the 21st of May. There, the winner of the KING of GREENS 2014 will have the honors to play the Pro/Am Contest with the spanish pro golfer Rafa Cabrero-Bello on his side!

KING of GREENS is a non-public Invitation tournament, which was initiated and is organised by NINE and ONE GOLF. Our media partners will cover the event.

Hot Fresh

I know it’s been a while since i’ve updated any actual content on here. The last week has been one of the best weeks of the year so far! Started off by investing in the latest addition to the Robertson Clan by adding a dog to the family! We rescued 6yr old Clyde from the Dog shelter after his owner passed away from a heart attack. Clyde is a 90lbs Siberian Husky that is a trained sled dog. He is very loving and a bundle of energy and he seems very much at home playing around in all the fresh Snow we’ve just got!

Ashley was charging it down the face of Chair 23 too with the biggest smile on her face! Throwing some sweet big surf turns and taking on some of the steepest runs that mammoth has to offer! Yeah Babe!! She and I were up on the mountain at the butt crack of dawn to get on the first chair of the day and it was worth it!

Ashley stoked to see all the fresh snow!
