The 2023 WLF New Swarm Tour's final stop will be a return to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley for the Virginia FlingGolf Open on October 21-22, 2023. The tournament will be held at the Massanutten Resort on two different courses: Mountain Greens and Woodstone Meadows.
The individual tourney features the best FlingGolfers in the country battling it out for the top prize. After an 18-hole preliminary round, the top finishers will play in a 9 hole playoff to decide the winner. There will be separate divisions for men and women, as well as the option for competing in a Seniors Division for those over 60 years old. Austin "Showtime" Ebersole and Britt "Reggie Queen" Morrison are the defending champs!
Teams of two FlingGolfers will play alternate shots to see who gets to wear the coveted "FlingBling". The top teams will play a 9-hole final after the 18-hole preliminary round. You do NOT need a teammate to compete, one will be assigned to you at the tournament. Mike "Big Cat" Edwards and Zac "The Mountaineer" Mulvey from Keystone FC are the defending champs.
Friday night will feature another junior 6-hole tournament for kids 8-16 years old. Prizes will be awarded to the top FlingGolfers in both junior (8-12 years old) and teen (13-16 years old) divisions.
A casual competition to test your FlingGolf putting and other on-green techniques. A great activity while you register on Friday.
Prizes will also be awarded for the Top Newcomers (first WLF tournament) and Top Military (active, reserve or veteran). In the Individual Tournament, there will also be a separate Seniors Division that can play from forward tees.

The tournament will begin early on Saturday so if you are coming from out of town, you will need to arrive by Friday. We encourage participants to arrive early and play a practice round at one or both of the two courses. Also, there will activities on Friday evening (Junior tournament, putting competition), with details to be announced.
Absolutely. Family and friends are welcome to attend and cheer on the participants. Massanutten Resort also has plenty of activities for families. If you have kids coming that are FlingGolfers, consider entering them in the Junior Tournament on Friday evening.
Although there are many lodging options in the area, for convenience and quality we recommend staying at Massanutten Resorts where the tournament will be held. They have offered our group discounted lodging from Thursday through Monday. Click here for more information.
It may be cheaper to ship your FlingsStick to where you are staying rather than checking it on an airplane. Check with wherever you are staying about their shipping policy.
There will not be organized practice rounds, but you can schedule tee times at either course at the Massanutten Resort. Discounted rate of $30 for 18 holes at either course.
There will be cash prizes for the Individual and Team Events, usually for the top 3 finishers in the Mens and Womens divisions. The amount of the cash prize is based on the number of registrants. The Individual Tournament will have a separate trophies and cash prizes for the Mens and Womens division. If there is enough participation, the Senior Division may also have prize money, but it will definitely have awards.
There will also be additional awards, including an award for Top Newcomer and Top Military.
Click here for the scorecards of Mountain Greens and Woodstone Meadows. While, as a general rule the men will play from the Gold Tees (Mountain Greens) and White Tees (Woodstone Meadows) and the women and seniors will play from the Red Tees on both courses, the tees and yardages will be modified by WLF to optimize play for FlingGolf, especially on the Woodstone Meadows course. We will be using specific WLF tee markers to mark the tee locations for men (Blue) and for women and seniors (Yellow).
Yes. Golf carts may be used throughout the tournament and they are included within the registration fees. Given the altitude on the Mountain Green course and the distance between holes on the Woodstone Meadows course, we are requiring use of the carts.
Definitely Not. This is meant to be a more casual and fun event and we encourage all FlingGolfers to participate. We anticipate that many participants will be "unpaired" and we will pair you with another FlingGolfer for the tournament.
Only New Swarm/FlingGolf FlingSticks may be used, without custom modifications other than the use of a Putting Slug or customized grips.
This will be a "pure" FlingGolf event so only one FlingStick may be used.
You may use any regulation golf ball for the tournament events.
Collared shirts are not required and you may wear shorts and other casual wear. However, we do ask that you dress in a neat and presentable manner.
We anticipate that there will be some filming, although it is likely that it will be used more for promotional or documentary use rather than a specific televised segment.
