FlingGolf is an awesome new sport that you play on a golf course (or in your backyard, mountains, or school field).
All you need is a single 9 oz. club called a FlingStick to play the whole game from tee-off to sinking the ball.
You can even play in the same foursome as regular golfers.
We like to use the analogy of Snowboarding to Skiing!
The early clouds cleared and it became a fantastic day to introduce 40 new players to the FlingGolf Experience at the Wenham Country Club in Wenham, Massachusetts. Players arrived from Ipswich and surrounding towns for a 30 minute clinic on the swing and short game basics and then went out to play 9 holes. Kids who had never been to a golf course before picked up the game quickly, even recording several pars just using the single FlingStick and a golf ball that they were provided by New Swarm Sports, the sponsor of the event.
Through ticket sales, the FlingGolf team raised $1185.00 to benefit Ipswich Youth Lacrosse.
North Shore Golf Magazine details the growth and acceptance of FlingGolf in New England, capturing the interest from young players and families, as well as the welcome from the region's golf course owners. "FlingGolf is compared in golf circles to the snowboard, which revolutionized the ski resort industry in the 1980's and 90's."
"FlingGolf solves a lot of (golf's) problems because people can learn in a matter of minutes, well enough to get out on the course, and then get better as they go." said Founder Alex Van Alen
