We continue to be inspired by the many players with cognitive and physical disabilities who have used our FlingSticks as a new, and often better, way to get out on a golf course. New Swarm is excited to partner with organizations that are dedicated to increasing the accessibility of golf courses to players of all abilities and capacities.
FlingGolf is a sport that is played on a golf course, with a golf ball. Instead of using a traditional set of golf clubs, players use a single FlingStick from New Swarm to hurl the ball down the fairway and play every shot from tee to hole.
Because the golf ball starts in the channel of the FlingStick, it is not necessary to be absolutely precise in striking the ball, as in traditional golf. Instead, a player can use a varied range of different swings to get the ball moving toward the hole. If certain injuries, conditions or limitations affect a player, the player can find a comfortable, effective swing that avoids that limitation or pain.
Players only need to master one FlingStick, not 14 clubs. For any ability or capacity, it is far easier to get started with FlingGolf than it is traditional golf.
FlingGolf is seamless with traditional golf. Players can play in the same group with traditional golfers for a more inclusive experience. This allows players with any ability to enjoy the camaraderie and healing that comes from playing in a group.
FlingSticks are ambidextrous and come in lengths of 36 to 51 inches (and New Swarm can customize to an even wider range if needed). This allows a player who may have difficulty reaching a ball from a wheelchair or solo rider to more easily scoop up and hurl the ball.
New Swarm is excited to partner with organizations across the country that are committed to enhancing adaptive golf opportunities. Please contact us about a partnership with your organization or about programs for acquiring FlingSticks. We proudly support the missions of these charitable organizations and many others like them:
