I have three that stand out in my mind:
-A 435 yarder on a par 5. Had a chip shot in.
-A 425 yarder that went over the green on a 410 yard hole.
-A 375 yard carry in 10 degree weather. Ball went about 378, could see the pitch mark just behind my ball (fairways were soaked).

I typically hit 1-3 drives over 400 each year, obviously condition (wind) aided.

Bonus: I forgot about a 375 yard 3 wood with no wind. Blistered a draw about 285 in the air and caught a speed slot on a firm and fast course for 90 yards of roll!

I'm not really sure, i was really long at 25-28 and then lost it a bit.

Back then i played the course that i eventually joined and am still a member at now, as a guest. And on a 453yd par 4 that is in a valley and is always soaking wet, i had 132yds in for my second. I probably flew it 300+ in the air as this was early in the morning when the course was still wet

I've never been within 20yds of that spot even now, and i'm pretty long again these days. You get pretty much zero roll on this hole. It's at the bottom of our course altitude wise.

I still remember it was with a FT9-tour with a whiteboard 73x, and one of the members i played with said he'd never seen a ball there

Back in 1993 I was playing (and organizing) in the company golf tournament.  I had noted that hole #3 (then hole #12) at Boomerang Golf Course in Greeley, Colorado to be the long drive hole.  This is a par 5 at 555 yards for the tees used at the tournament.  This was a 2 man Stableford tournament.  With my partner safely in the fairway I unloaded on my drive.  I was gaming a 1954 MacGregor M85W (S300) and Titleist Tour Balata 100 compression golf balls.  We had 148 yards to the middle of the green as a result of my drive.  In total the drive was around 400 yards (397 based on the tee marker).  Golf at 5,000 feet elevation with a slightly downhill par 5 with a wide fairway is always good for the soul.

I once on a par 5  550 yrds in 25 mph winds hit a drive dead straight down the fairway 432 yrds... the ball had to have hit a sprinkler head and bounce an extra 100 yrds or more .... granted I had the wind helping but I put everything into it..... sad thing was I over shot the green  twice and and ended up 2 putting for parPosted Image

For me Rancho Vista Palmdale Calif.  550 yard par 5.  I think it was in Feb more than 15 yrs ago when the cold and strong winds dry out the course.  The fairways were like concrete and there was a really really really strong wind behind me.  I drove it 400 yards and hit a knockdown 9 iron in.  My playing partner was proud that he hit a 300 yard drive and then asked where my ball was.  :D

I'm a short hitter, especially as I am recovering from health issues, but I have never been long.  A coupe years ago I would say my usual really good drive would go 250, and I would be content.  So, I was on the tee of a par four with a slight dogleg left, and I asked my partner (who was more familiar with the course) where to hit.  He pointed out a tree down the straight part of the dogleg, so I took aim.  So, I made good contact, really good contact, but I pulled the ball, over the corner of the dogleg.  I was expecting it to be bad, but since I knew I hit it, I punched my watch to measure it.  After not seeing it anywhere it should have been we drove out to a ball in the middle of the fairway, about 100 yards from the green.  There it was!  My watch said 308.  Maybe a little downhill, but not a lot, no cart path, just hit.

I hit a similar one a few weeks later, over trees, a dogleg, and water, to a great place.  I decided that's where someone way better than me would try to play to, I have not attempted it since.

The power pull is amazing, but totally unpredictable!

And, I expect I probably doubled both holes.  There is a rule that the shot after an amazing drive has to be skulled or hit extremely fat!

I would add to that rule 'or the next shot will be struck so purely it flies 20 yards further than normal'. After I 'piped' a drive (only 270 these days) on the last hole last night I had a dead on 65 yard shot slightly uphill. My half-swing 60 degree wedge got froggy and went 85 yards in the air, right over the flag into a sand trap leaving a shot where the green sloped severely away from me. Of course in WRX fashion I knocked it to within 15 inches and still made par. 3 'perfect' shots and I only got a stinking par. I was real happy with the results actually.

The other time we were on a course we'd never played before.  Step up to the tee on a par 5 that went uphill and then down hill about 250 out.  There is a ranger in a cart at the crest of the hill and the 4some in front of us also at the crest.  The ranger is motioning us to hit.  We wave him off.  They're still in range. He waves us to hit again and starts gesticulating wildly and yelling something at us for us to hit or else.  I step  up and make a big smooth swing.  The ball flew way over the ranger and the group in front of us and landed down the hill where we couldn't see it.  I found the ball about 400 yards from the tee under a pine tree.  I always wonder if it got there on its own.

Did you yell fore? How did the follow-up conversation with Mr. Ranger go?

I posted this in another thread a few weeks ago. Although I have played in heavy rain, extreme cold, and light snow, the answer to this one is easy for me. October 3, 1979: I am a first year high school teacher and a group of us decide to go out for 9-holes after school. The sky looks threatening but we are young and enthusiastic about swinging the clubs. The wind started to howl and by the 8th hole, we could hardly keep the ball on the tee. The 8th is a short par 5 of 495 yards. My tee ball left me less than 100-yards from the green. Yup, a drive of approximately 400-yards thanks to an incredible wind gust. We finished the round in the nick of time. THE TORNADO swept through the golf course destroying more than 500 trees that were in its path. If you GOOGLE the Windsor Locks Tornado of 1979, you can read about all of the destruction it caused. We were crazy to be out their but survived our ignorance.

Have you ever had a guy comment on one of your solid drives, "That's the best you've got."? I smile to myself and think, "nope", I once hit one 400-yards.

I'm a super newb and this season was the first time I've played seriously.

So far, my longest was about 220. I usually go about 200, but am still learning my swing and find the Driver especially difficult to control.

I have hit a few over 300 yards.  Mostly down hill, down wind, or both.  Really have not paid attention to max length drives much these days.  If I hit it far enough and in the fairway I am usually happy.  Care more about stuffing shots close to the pin and making putts.  Executing the correct shot when needed over a full 18 is most important for me now.

Pulled a drive over a tree to the right last Sunday, looked around the tree for 3 minutes when someone told me he found a Titleist 8 near a popular tree 324 yards from the tees. Not one of my best, but Iíd take that one. Ended up only 128 yard shot over a California oak tree to the pin for a 3 putt bogey. Less than ideal placement. Canít really remember any other ones and ones 2 fairways over arenít worth remembering.

Nice shot OP. SJO is a great course.

I don't know if it's my personal best but I hit a 355 yard drive about a month ago.  I even came home and bragged about it to my wife.  She was not amused....

I can think of two.

I hit one 299 according to my gps last week on a 510ish par 5 and in the fairway. I swung with all I had and contacted it a bit high and a fraction towards the toe. It looked amazing watching it fly with a bit of a fade. Unfortunately, I semi-topped the next shot and ended up making a bogey.

I hit one 291 gps measured this past summer on a 420ish par 4 that is one of the harder holes on the course. It just ran into the right rough, though it was dead straight, I just pushed it. I hit a good gap wedge to about 12 feet and then the putt lipped in for birdie. That's probably my best hole ever played.

Both were pretty level from tee to fairway and wind was negligible if I remember correctly. I generally hit it 260-270 if I can find it.  :)
The course is at like 1000 feet of elevation but I'm not sure what difference that actually makes.

My longest drive happened while playing in a scramble with my buddies at a course I had never played. The hole was 372 yards and fairway was elevated and sloped towards the hole, so when you hit it up over the crest of the hill, you can't really see where it is going to end up. One of my friends had already hit a good drive up the middle, so I was able to put a little extra into it and hope for the best. It was actually the Long Drive hole in the tournament so I put a little extra into it in hopes of winning a prize also. I hit it perfectly straight and long and everyone in my group as well as the people in a group near us hooted and hollered as soon as I hit because of the sound it made when I made contact (two tees for two different holes were very close together).

Total distance was 332 yards, and was actually 2 yards short of the longest drive on the hole for the day.

Probably 290 ish yards.  Tilden Park #12, 300 yards park 4, slightly uphill.  There's a creek about 240 out which causes most players - including me - to lay up.  One day I decided to go for it and pulled out my driver.  A guy who sometimes filled-in our foursome - and who was kind of a jerk - says:  "You'll never make it."  All the motivation I needed and I put some extra juice into the drive.  Because of the rise in front of the creek you can't see if you've made it over until you get up there and there was my ball in front of the green.  We saw the ball, he said nothing but I said a few things about him in my head.  That was 30 years ago and I still feel good about it.

328 Yards with a Cleveland Launcher 400- Western Skies Golf Course, Gilbert AZ, Hole #7 way back in 2005 (I think that front is now the back 9).  Swung as hard as I could and hit a low rising stinger that rolled out a ton.
