What is FlingGolf?

FlingGolf is a sport that is easy to start and fun to master. You play on any golf course, but instead of hitting a golf ball with a club, you use a single FlingStick to hurl the ball and shape every shot from tee to hole. You can even play in the same foursome as traditional golfers. Just no argyle sweaters. You’re better than that.

MEET THE FLINGSTICK®

THE STRIKER PAD

When on the green, position the ball alongside the striker pad on the FlingStick head and putt the ball toward the hole.

THE CHANNEL

Used for long distance FlingShots from the tee box and fairway and for touch shots closer to the green.

FAQ

THE BASICS

On any golf course. Yup, every course in the world.

No. So grab a FlingStick and liberate one today.

Absolutely. Even in the same foursome. It’s just like skiers and snowboarders using the same mountain. A really flat, green mountain.

THE EQUIPMENT

No. A standard golf ball is all you need. Don’t bother with expensive brands either; any ball will do. Unless you’re rich and like throwing $5 notes into a pond.

We don’t want to tell you how to accessorize, but the FlingStick weighs less than a pound. But if a golf bag is your thing, by all means, you do you.

THE GAME

Far, really far, or really really far. Over 90 metres within 5 minutes of using your FlingStick, but with some practice, strength, and skill, over 180 metres is certainly on the table. Hard-core athletes have been known to bomb it 220+ metres.

Very. Compared to an average golfshot, you will generally find it much easier to keep your FlingShots straight and on the fairway. But if you really enjoy being in the deep woods maybe this isn’t the game for you.

FlingGolfers tend to play quicker than traditional golfers, especially beginners. One “club,” more accuracy, no practice swings, etc. But feel free to play in the same foursome as traditional golfers if you want.

Unless the course has designated FlingGolf tee markers, we recommend using tees that play between 5000 to 5500 metres for 18 holes.

The fewer the FlingShots, the better the score. Sound familiar? The scoring in FlingGolf is very similar to traditional golf, but the rules are much simpler. Another way to look at it is that if you got rid of all the annoying golf rules that most people don’t follow, you’d get FlingGolf. For the complete Rules of FlingGolf see our Rules page.

TECHNIQUES

Yes. For maximum distance, it’s actually essential. Take a few steps back from where the ball lies and release the ball before reaching this spot.

For full distance FlingShots we recommend a baseball grip, with no interlocking of fingers. For flop shots, we recommend a grip with hands apart for more control. For putting, we recommend hands apart with hands positioned as on a hockey stick. For more info on swing techniques, go here.

There are many ways to get the ball to the hole once you are on the green. You can use a traditional putting technique (which is enhanced by using the Putting Slug), but there are several other techniques that really makes FlingGolf unique. Here’s a video that shows a few.

You’re not dropping the FlingStick down your back far enough, or you aren’t following through. For more details go to our Techniques page.
