What is FlingGolf?
FlingGolf is a killer new sport that is played with just one FlingStick to hurl a golf ball down a golf course, with players expertly shaping their shots from tee to hole. Just like snowboarding to skiing, FlingGolfers can play on the same course, even in the same foursome as golfers. The sport is extremely kid and family-friendly!
PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf has recognized Woodstone Meadows Golf Course in McGaheysville Virginia as the 2016 FlingGolf Course of the Year. FlingGolf is the energetic new sport now played on hundreds of golf courses across the USA, Canada and internationally. WoodStone Meadows Golf Course is a part of the family-friendly Massanutten Resort.
Alex Van Alen, Founder of PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf, stated, “Brett Mowbray, the PGA Pro and Director for Golf Operations at Massanutten Resort, has developed a program at Woodstone Meadows that has become the example for other courses and resorts to emulate. He has recognized the fun, family-friendly character that FlingGolf brings to golf courses, and has made it easy for new players to enjoy the beauty and challenges of the course. It is a testament to Brett’s vision as well as Massanutten’s dedication to the enjoyment of their guests that they saw over 1600 rounds of FlingGolf played in 2016 and have seen well over 3000 rounds played since first introducing the sport.
“It has been a lot of fun seeing FlingGolf grow here”, stated Mowbray.
