FLINGGOLF 101

HOW TO PLAY

Spoiler Alert: FlingGolf isn't about annoying rules. Seriously, go ahead and rip out half the pages of a regulation golf rule book. As if you even have one. All you need is a New Swarm FlingStick and a regular golf ball. Just count your shots from tee to hole, like counting strokes in regular golf.

On the Green

If using the FlingNotch, push or pull the ball toward the hole without moving your feet. If using the channel, note where the ball lies and release the ball from the channel no closer to the hole from that point.

PENALTIES

Take a 1-stroke penalty if your ball lands in a sand bunker or water hazard, if it’s out-of-bounds, or if you lose it.
