About FlingGolf: FlingGolf is the new action sport for golf courses. Originally designed as a hybrid between lacrosse and traditional golf, FlingGolf is played on regulation course alongside or even in the same foursome as golfers. FlingGolf is played with one FlingStick and a golf ball. The FlingStick features a carbon fiber shaft similar to a golf club and channeled basket modeled after a lacrosse cradle. With a lightweight design, the FlingStick is the perfect sporting equipment for young players; allowing players to shape their shots in the same way as a golf club and making it easy to learn for all ages. The ball is flung rather than hit with a club and the game is scored in the same way as golf. FlingGolf is designed to revitalize the golf industry by introducing a new generation of players to the green and adding additional revenue streams for golf course owners throughout the US, Canada and even in Europe.
