"FlingGolf is about kids, friends and families having a good time on the course. It took off pretty quickly and we were easily over 1500 rounds last year. There's no reason next year (2016) we wont be up over 2000 rounds with FlingGolf." Brett Mowbray, PGA Pro at Woodstone Meadows Golf Course, Massanutten Resort, Virginia. Massanutten will be the site of the 2016 Virginia Commonwealth Games FlingGolf tournament on July 30. More to come on that soon.
Brae Ben, the Mississauga City golf course near Toronto, has just rolled out FlingGolf this spring, along with another Canadian course, Caughnawaga, near Montreal. Lacrosse is the national sport, after all, so it is a natural that these courses are adopting FlingGolf to bring in new young athletes and families to fill their tee times.
PlusOne Sports, the founder of FlingGolf, will sponsor the Major League Lacrosse All-Star FlingGolf Invitational Tournament in Sacramento July 8, 2017.
The second annual MLL All-Star FlingGolf Invitational will award nearly $2,000 in prizes to MLL players participating in the nine-hole competition. The event will take place on Saturday, July 8 at Haggin Oaks Golf Course in Sacramento, California.
How cool is that? Major League Lacrosse and New York Lizards Star Paul Rabil got a few FlingSticks and brought them out to Laytonsville Golf Course in Maryland for the 2nd Annual Rabil Companies Challenge: Lacrosse vs FlingGolf.

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.
