About FlingGolf, New Swarm and the World League FlingGolf
FlingGolf is an action sport for golf courses where players use a single New Swarm FlingStick to hurl a golf ball to shape every shot from tee to hole. FlingGolf can be played right alongside traditional golf and since its inception has been played by thousands of players on nearly 2000 golf courses in 32 countries to date. FlingGolf has appeared on Shark Tank in 2021 and on ESPN in 2022 with the airing of the New Swarm Classic.
New Swarm is the brand and business behind the sport - creating, developing and distributing its FlingSticks to casual and professional players while supporting the top players in the world as New Swarm Athletes.
World League FlingGolf is the governing body and league for FlingGolf players, and through its New Swarm Tour, promotes the sport with a 5 stop schedule in 2023, starting with San Diego in February.
