Recognizing the need to increase the use of golf courses on the nation’s military bases, Boensel identified FlingGolf as the perfect sport to entice new players from the armed services to get out and enjoy those courses.

PlusOne Sports’ FlingGolf is Official Partner of the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse

            BOSTON—April 4, 2016—PlusOne Sports with its innovative new sport, FlingGolf, and the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse announce today that they have formed a partnership for the 2016 MLL Season.

            FlingGolf — a fun, fast and thrilling hybrid of golf and lacrosse — is played on a golf course, with a golf ball, and is scored similar to golf.  Players use a FlingStick — a lightweight, carbon fiber stick with a high tech cradle for the ball at the end — to launch a regulation golf ball around a golf course, expertly shaping their shots. No modifications to the course are required, and it’s so easy to learn that players can head out to the course in less than a half hour.
