On July 30, 2016, the Virginia Commonwealth Games will feature FlingGolf at the Woodstone Meadows Golf Course at Massanutten Resort in McGaheysville. PGA pro Brett Mowbray introduced FlingGolf to the Woodstone Meadows course in the Spring of 2015 and it quickly became one of the leading FlingGolf courses in the country, with hundreds of players playing over 1500 rounds. With the excitement over the upcoming Commonwealth Games, Mowbray expects many more players and rounds this year.
Alex Van Alen, founder of FlingGolf, says, "Having one of the leading FlingGolf courses in the country, and being a great family resort, Massanutten is a natural for the Commonwealth Games. Being able to be played in the same foursome as golfers, FlingGolf is a family friendly sport, but it also brings out some healthy competition. Brett has done a great job of reaching that balance and promoting this great new sport here. We are really looking forward to the upcoming tournament."
This tournament is open to any Virginia resident in multiple age groups. To register, click here:http://www.commonwealthgames.org/fling-golf

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!
