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.
Quick Start Rules
On the Tee
Take as many steps as you like while hurling the ball toward the hole just make sure to launch before you reach the tee marker.
In the Fairway
Note where your ball lies. Retreat up to 5 paces away from the hole and take your shot before reaching your previous lie.
On the Green
Position the ball alongside the striker pad on the FlingStick head and putt the ball toward the hole.
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.
Remove ball from the bunker and retreat up to 5 paces from the bunker. You must take your FlingShot before reaching the edge of the bunker. Alternatively you can take a shot from the bunker without penalty as long as you do NOT pick up the ball (e.g., a side-car shot)
Water Hazard, Out of Bounds or Lost Ball
Retreat up to 5 paces back from where the ball entered the hazard, went out-of-bounds or was last seen, no closer to the hole.
