How To Play

FlingGolf is a fun sport that requires only one club (a FlingStick™) and can be played at a much faster pace than regular golf. You start on the Teeing Ground and throw your golf ball down the fairway in a lacrosse or baseball style motion. You continue throwing the golf ball from each spot that your ball rests until you have made it to the green. Once on the green, you can use the FlingStick™ as a putter with a Hockey style motion.

  • Equipment: With your FlingStick and ball ready to go, head to the tee.
  • Fling Techniques: There is no wrong way to fling it so make your own techniques or try out the overhead, sidearm, low-to-high, flop shot from behind your back or the sideways bump and run.
  • Scoring: Count your flings from tee to hole.
  • Tee Shots: Throw your ball from behind the tee marker towards the flag. It is ok to take steps while flinging the ball.
  • Mid-Shots: Mark your ball where it lies and throw your ball from behind the mark.
  • On-the-Green Shots: Place the ball in the putting notch on the side of the FlingStick™ head, place your feet in position, and push the ball toward the hole. You may not move your feet while pushing. You may also mark the ball, place it in the FlingStick™ channel, and roll it toward the hole.
  • Penalties: If your ball lands in a sand bunker, water hazard, goes out of bounds or gets lost, take a 1-stroke penalty.
  • Sand Bunker: Remove your ball from the bunker and retreat up to 5 paces from the bunker along the line your ball traveled into the bunker. Fling your ball before reaching the bunker.
  • Water Hazards, Out of Bounds or Lost Ball: Retreat up to 5 paces back from where the ball went into the hazard, out of bounds or area where it was lost, then fling the ball before you reach the hazard, out of bounds or lost area.

Yes, even in the same foursome.

Do I need a special golf ball to play?

down arrow

No, a standard golf ball is all you need.

How many FlingSticks do I need to play?

down arrow

Just one.

How far will my FlingShot go?

down arrow

Far, really far, or really really far. Over 100 yards within 5 minutes of using your FlingStick, but with some practice, strength, and skill, over 200 yards is certainly on the table. Hard-core athletes have been known to bomb it 250+ yards.

But how accurate will it be?

Very. Compared to an average golf shot, you will generally find it much easier to keep your FlingShots straight and on the fairway.

How does pace of play compare to traditional golf?

down arrow

FlingGolfers tend to play quicker than traditional golfers, especially beginners.

Can I take a few steps before my shot?
