PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf has recognized Woodstone Meadows Golf Course in McGaheysville Virginia as the 2016 FlingGolf Course of the Year. FlingGolf is the energetic new sport now played on hundreds of golf courses across the USA, Canada and internationally. WoodStone Meadows Golf Course is a part of the family-friendly Massanutten Resort.
Alex Van Alen, Founder of PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf, stated, “Brett Mowbray, the PGA Pro and Director for Golf Operations at Massanutten Resort, has developed a program at Woodstone Meadows that has become the example for other courses and resorts to emulate. He has recognized the fun, family-friendly character that FlingGolf brings to golf courses, and has made it easy for new players to enjoy the beauty and challenges of the course. It is a testament to Brett’s vision as well as Massanutten’s dedication to the enjoyment of their guests that they saw over 1600 rounds of FlingGolf played in 2016 and have seen well over 3000 rounds played since first introducing the sport.
“It has been a lot of fun seeing FlingGolf grow here”, stated Mowbray. “Because the sport can be played at the same time as golfers, we’ve seen family reunions get out on the course, with half playing golf and the other half playing FlingGolf, and all of them having fun. In the summer, we hosted a camp of 130 kids playing FlingGolf in addition to several corporate outings and local college teams. It has been so easy to implement FlingGolf – we didn’t need to make any changes to our course and our staff has really enjoyed teaching new players. It has been a great addition and it is an honor to be named the FlingGolf course of the year.”
PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf is the creator of FlingGolf and the patented FlingStick, and promotes and governs the sport. FlingGolf is played with a golf ball on a golf course, using only a single FlingStick to hurl the ball and shape every shot from tee to hole. Golf course owners don’t need to make any changes to their courses, and much like snowboarding to skiing, the sport can be played in the same foursome as golfers. PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf is an official partner of the National Golf Course Owners Association and Major League Lacrosse. It is based in Ipswich,MA.

A breathtaking property, Massanutten Resort features 6,000 acres of mountain fun at its very best. Unique in both its size, variety of amenities, and outstanding condo and hotel accommodations, Massanutten has secured its spot as one of the premier all-seasons resort destinations on the East Coast.
Massanutten Resort offers many unique amenities in addition to FlingGolf, including the Indoor/Outdoor WaterPark, Ski and Adventure Park area, golf, farm-to-table dining experiences, shopping and recreation options, along with a day spa for complete relaxation and rejuvenation. Located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, Massanutten is easily accessible from many major cities.
How cool is that? Major League Lacrosse and New York Lizards Star Paul Rabil got a few FlingSticks and brought them out to Laytonsville Golf Course in Maryland for the 2nd Annual Rabil Companies Challenge: Lacrosse vs FlingGolf.

BOSTON (April 11, 2017) – Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier outdoor professional lacrosse league, and PlusOne Sports, the creator of FlingGolf, announced today they will continue to partner for the 2017 MLL season. The partnership will build off the lacrosse community’s growing participation in this rapidly growing and complimentary young sport and will be showcased prior to the 2017 MLL All-Star Game in Sacramento, Calif.
“After last year’s successful introduction of FlingGolf to MLL players and fans, it is exciting to welcome back PlusOne Sports to participate in the league’s activities for the entire season,” MLL Commissioner David Gross said, “including, the MLL All-Star FlingGolf Open prior to our All-Star Game on July 8. The players are looking forward to participating in what will be a fun and competitive event before they hit the lacrosse field.”
FlingGolf is an active hybrid of golf and lacrosse that is played on a golf course, with a golf ball, and with a simpler set of rules than golf.
