The "Hot Shot" Golf Ball Air Cannon"

Played on a Par 4 as a closest to the pin and hole in one contest. Does not slow down play. In most cases it actually speeds play.

Safely shoots standard golf balls up to 400 yards or more. We recomend using at 280-320 yards. Most players cannot see the ball much further and the excitement factor goes way down.

Our cannons are air powered and do not use any form of explosive propellant or gun powder. "Spud guns" using propane, gun powder or any explosive type propellant are considered firearms and are probably illegal according to the ATF. Under federal law a spud gun can be considered an illegal destructive device that expels a projectile by explosive force with a barrel diameter of more than half an inch. The "Hot Shot" is not considered a firearm and does not fall into the category of a weapon.

The JVD Golf Hot Shot Professional System is Used by Golf Tournaments and Golf Tournament Professionals
Throughout the USA and Canada.

The Hot Shot Golf Ball Cannon™ is one of the most accurate golf ball launch devices on the market today. Claims from others say their device is the best. My opinion as well as other tournament professionals claim otherwise. The newest version of the Hot Shot Golf Ball Cannon™ has been rigorously field tested and has launched thousands of balls with no problems, failures or concerns.

Some of our clients have used competitor cannons and dart balls and have switched to using our cannons.
Why? Because we manufacture a superior product.

"Jeff,  Thanks again buddy! The Hot Shot Air Cannon is a useful tool for testing our golf hitting nets at Izzo Golf. I am able to target parts of the net with precision and also regulate the ball speed. This also enables another fun way to play the game. Thank you for a great product.

LeaderBoard Miami:

"As one of the first people in Florida to start using the golf ball launcher/ air cannon in charity events, I’ve purchased from a couple of suppliers around the country but by far the best device is the one I have purchased from Jeff Harrison at JVD golf. They come professionally painted with no need to take apart and reseal which I had to do numerous times on the first ones I purchased three years ago. And when I accidently cracked one of the barrels when I dropped it loading into the golf cart, Jeff had one in the mail the next day, painted and ready to go. His customer service is terrific and his professionalism shows in every one of the launchers I’ve purchased from him."
Marty Perlmutter, LeaderBoard Miami

 LeaderBoard of Boston:

"We have been sourcing our Air Cannons from Jeff for the past two years after experiencing poor service response from a first-generation supplier. We now have multiple cannons in service and flawless performance from day one. That's the level of dependability we need when running over 150 promotions last year."    
Neil Policow, Partner LeaderBoard of Boston

Don't be fooled by gimicks or imitators.

Claims by competitors say that balls launched are a knuckle ball and very inaccurate. Whats wrong with a knuckle ball? Professional baseball pitchers have been throwing knucle balls for years right over home plate. The Hot Shot will launch balls right where they are aimed and more accuratly than most golfers.

An even higher degree of accuracy has been obtained by using the Polara XD Golf Ball. At a recent event over 75% of the balls were on the green and many within 15 feet of the pin from 310 yards with a mild cross wind.

Other so called "patented golf ball dart systems" are just that, "patent pending". Anyone can apply for a patent. It doesn't mean they will get a patent. The Spalding Bowl Darts tried to patent their dart ball in the 1930's.

Why rent a cannon for $400? We sell a professional model for just $429 including free FedEx shipping to continental US.


Anyone can glue a plastic childs dart flight to a golf ball.

And how do you putt a dart? You can't.

Our professional launchers are used all across the US and Canada. Each cannon is built and tested by JVD Golf to ensure a high degree of reliability and safety. We have many clients that have switched from other cannons to ours and now trust the JVD Golf Hot Shot Golf Ball Cannon™ as their first and only choice of cannons.

JVD Golf Hot Shot Golf Ball Cannons are fun, safe and exciting.
