Alex visited the Woodstone Meadows Golf Course at the Massanutten Resort in Virginia to present PGA Pro Brett Mowbray with PlusOne Sports FlingGolf Innovator Award for being the first course in the country to surpass 1000 paid rounds in 2015. Mowbray started with just a few FlingSticks and has seen visitors of all kinds using them to enjoy the course. "Family friendly resorts would be crazy not to offer FlingGolf to their guests." Mowbray says. It is a winner for the courses, because they are filling up the empty tee-times of the late afternoon, and the guests are having a great time playing. Often, parents who play golf bring their kids to play FlingGolf alongside them, so the whole family enjoys the course. Alex said, "Brett and the Massanutten Resort have shown real vision by introducing this new sport to their guests, making it a fun atmosphere, and realizing an excellent return as well. This is an example for many other courses to follow as FlingGolf expands across the country and beyond. My son and I had a great time staying here and taking advantage of the great activities off the course as well."
Sacramento, CA. Jeremy Sieverts, Midfielder for the Denver Outlaws, won the 2017 Major League Lacrosse All-Star FlingGolf Invitational on Saturday morning, held at Haggin Oaks Golf in Sacramento. In addition to the $1000 winners purse, Sieverts took home an additional $500 as he also won the closest to the pin on the 14th hole (sponsored by TourMark Grips), and longest fling on the 18th hole. Eric Law, also of the Denver Outlaws came in second, and Brian Phipps of the Chesapeake Bayhawks, came in third in the field of 8 MLL All Stars.
"It was a great experience to be in Sacramento for All Star Weekend and to be able to compete against some of the best lacrosse players in the world on a golf course with FlingGolf as well as the lacrosse field", Sieverts said. 'It was fun to play FlingGolf for the first time and quickly pick up on both distance and accuracy of the FlingStick... and certainly always fun to compete with other MLL Players."
We had a great time at the Lax Sports Net Headquarters outside Boston. Thanks Josh Hawkins and Margo McAuley for having us on!
