Fort Myers Country Club Introduces FlingGolf
Fort Myers Country Club is introducing FlingGolf, a new, alternative way to enjoy golf courses, using a specially designed FlingStick from New Swarm Sports and a regulation golf ball. Instead of hitting the ball with a club, players use a single FlingStick to shape every shot from tee to hole.
FlingGolf can be played alongside regular golfers, making it appealing for beginners, families or frustrated golfers. The pace of play tends to be a bit faster than regular golf as there’s no need to switch clubs during the course of play. The patented FlingStick is an all-in-one piece of equipment enabling players to fling the ball for distance and putt the ball for play on the green.
FlingGolf was created and is promoted by New Swarm Sports, based in Amesbury, Massachusetts. It is a sport in which members of all ages and athletic capabilities can engage and enjoy the course. And because it can be played alongside traditional golf, even in the same foursome, FlingGolf is bringing friends and families out to play together.
“We’re excited to bring FlingGolf to Fort Myers Country Club this season and look forward to attracting players to the course. We have a variety of FlingSticks available for rental in our pro shop and will give beginners a few tips before they head out. And while picking up the sport is pretty easy to learn, throughout the season we will be providing some demo days and clinics on our range,” said Kari Phenix Head Golf Professional.
FlingGolf continues to grow in popularity on courses all over the world. It’s easy to play and easy for course owners to implement as no course modification is needed. Check out FlingGolf.com to find out more about the sport, learn some fling techniques and shop for the latest FlingSticks.
