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
