FlingGolf Now Played at Over 1,000 Golf Courses
(BOSTON, Mass.) – FlingGolf – the sport inspired by an intersection of golf and lacrosse has now been played at more than 1,000 golf courses worldwide.
Helping attract lapsed and non-golfers to the course and increasing accessibility for all, it’s easy for younger and inexperienced people to play while providing a new challenge for avid golfers alike. Requiring only one club from tee to green, FlingGolf removes the financial equipment-barrier typically associated with traditional golf. All courses are FlingGolf ready, as the game requires no modifications.
Operators have welcomed its inclusion, attracting a whole new revenue stream from families, friends, events and outings.
“We started offering FlingGolf in spring 2015 and it’s been worth about $40,000 in revenue per year ever since then,” says Brett Mowbray, head professional at Massanutten Resort. “We typically get an extra 1,400 to 1,500 rounds each year, played by all walks of life – kids, adults and seniors.”
“Reaching 1,000 courses worldwide is a very satisfying milestone for us,” says founder of FlingGolf, Alex Van Alen. “We have seen our incredible player community drive that growth, as well as many courses welcoming players and promoting the sport within their local communities. Just like snowboarding infused new energy and faces to ski resorts long ago, it’s great to see FlingGolf do the same at golf courses today.”
To date, FlingGolf has been played on public, resort, military and municipal courses in over a dozen countries, including every state in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Morocco, and several in the Caribbean and Europe.

FlingGolf is ideal for anyone, even golfers, that may be looking for a sport to play with their entire family and friends. It offers a very quick start to get on the course, which allows a low barrier to entry, especially for people who have lapsed or haven’t shown an interest in traditional golf. Played on any golf course, instead of hitting a golf ball with a club, New Swarm Sports patented FlingStick is the tool of choice to hurl the ball and shape every shot from tee to hole. FlingGolf is even able to be played in the same foursome as traditional golfers, making it very family-friendly, and it requires no modifications to the course.
New Swarm Sports, LLC manufactures the patented FlingStick, which, along with a golf ball, is the only equipment needed to play. New Swarm promotes the sport through the World League FlingGolf.
