National Golf Course Owners Association welcomes PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf as newest Partner.

November 22, 2016

For Immediate Release

November 21, 2016

 The National Golf Course Owners Association and PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf have formed a partnership to promote the sport of FlingGolf through golf courses and to individual players throughout the United States. "NGCOA is excited to welcome PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf as our newest partner. We look forward to working closely together to drive new young players to fill empty tee times and drive additional revenue to our members through this partnership," said Jay Karen, CEO of the NGCOA.

FlingGolf is played on a golf course, with a golf ball and can be played in the same foursome as golfers. Using a single FlingStick designed by PlusOne Sports, a player throws the golf ball from the tee down the fairway and ultimately glides it in to the hole on the green. Just in its second full season, the sport is being played on hundreds of golf courses throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The sport is often likened to snowboarding in that it is bringing young players and new revenue to underused courses, just as snowboarding did for ski resorts starting in the 1980s and 1990s.

 “It is very satisfying to grow our partnership with the National Golf Course Owners Association and look forward to creating new revenue for their members”, said Alex Van Alen, CEO and Founder of PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf. “Since we first introduced the concept of this fun and active new sport to the NGCOA, they have seen the promise that it holds in introducing thousands of new players to their member courses. Since owners don’t need to make any changes to their course to be FlingGolf friendly, it is very simple for them to welcome the new players.”

PlusOne Sports created, promotes and governs the sport of FlingGolf and developed and distributes the patented FlingStick, the only equipment needed to play. The company is located in Ipswich, MA. For more information, visit www.flinggolf.com.

 Established in 1979 and headquartered in Charleston, S.C., the NGCOA is the leading authority on the business of golf course ownership and management. The Association represents the industry’s key decision makers with ultimate responsibility for golf courses throughout the world.  The not-for-profit organization is the only trade association dedicated exclusively to golf course owners and operators.

It is amazing since we at PlusOne Sports introduced FlingGolf in February 2014 at the National Golf Course Owners Association Annual Meeting in Orlando, that this awesome young sport has been embraced by hundreds of golf courses across the US and beyond (see our course map for courses where FlingGolf is welcome) and our community has grown to many thousands of players.   This past weekend we had the very special opportunity to be in North Carolina to help roll FlingGolf out at Pinehurst, aka "the Cradle of American Golf", which, since 1895 has been the home of multiple US Opens, Ryder Cups, US Amateurs and many other huge golf tournaments.
