Fore Fun started as a company all about making golf more fun! All of the golf industry reports say that people aren’t playing as much golf today because they are not having enough fun. That just doesn’t make any sense to us because here at Fore Fun we can’t get enough of the fun that golf provides. Instead of being selfish, we want to share it with all of you!
Our goals are to bring new and fun products to the golf industry through direct distribution to golf courses, golf shops, golf tournaments and golfers. These products/services are either created by Fore Fun itself or through partnerships with other companies looking to get into the golf market. The goal of these products/services are to enhance the on-course experience you have during a round.
Fore Fun Distribution – your go-to golf snack distributor.
Fore Fun Distribution started after a consulting project with Pearson’s Candy to figure out how to get one of their products, Salted Nut Roll, into golf courses around the country. After extensive research and a week at the PGA Show in 2015, Fore Fun went back to Pearson’s and recommended rebranding the package as the Official Snack of
Golf and also created a distribution platform for courses to get the bars shipped directly to them. After launching the Nut Roll across the country, Fore Fun Distribution started adding other golf snacks to make it super easy for courses to get their hands on a variety of snacks meant for golfers! Any golf course can purchase the Salted Nut Roll, other golf snacks or other Fore Fun items by simply sending us an email, info @ ForeFun.com or creating an account on store.forefun.com and using the shopping cart.
Why are games so important?
The goal of this consumer website is to connect golfers with the rules of all of the on-course games and wagers. We bet that 95% of avid golfers play some type of betting game on the golf course. When you ask them why, it is a very simple answer – “because it makes it more fun”. Whether you are a beginner and you
don’t know these games or if you are a veteran and need a new game to play with your friends, we have what you are looking for. We hope you browse the site, check out the games – play them, rate them, comment about them, tweet about them, but also send us an email if you think we are missing some games (we knowwe are)! If you are having fun playing a game on the golf course, we want to hear about it! We also created a book that will fit perfectly in your golf bag to remind you of the rules to the 40 most popular games. Check it out here!

Jeremy Imker – Owner
20 years ago, Jer’s golf love affair began with a hand-me-down set of clubs. As he grew out of that set, he scoured garage sales and borrowed clubs to keep hacking. In college, he played Fox Hollow Golf Course, where he paid $300 for a summer membership. It was there, he hooked another golfer for life: his future wife, Tricia. He has loved playing the last 20 years and can’t wait to share and influence others (like his wife) to have fun on the course! Jer knows every game in and out for the course and is also a Fantasy Golf fanatic and runs a big yearly league….do need a perfect game fore your group or want to join a great Fantasy Golf League?
