At PlusOne Sports, we are enormously proud and grateful for how far FlingGolf has spread in our first full year. Our FlingSticks are now on courses in the USA, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, several countries in Europe and most recently New Zealand. We even got a report of a round being played in Morocco, Africa! We set out to create nothing less than a killer new sport, and thanks to our pioneering friends and customers in the golf course, lacrosse, and resort worlds, we have done just that. Players are having fun on golf courses, and those courses are seeing their revenues bump back up to where they should be.
Thank you for a fantastic 2015, continue to spread the FlingGospel, and together, we look forward to growing the sport even more in 2016.

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!
