Independence is proud to introduce 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 faster than regular golf, as there’s no need to switch clubs during the game. 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. 

 Created and promoted by New Swarm Sports, based in Amesbury, Massachusetts, FlingGolf is a sport in which members of all ages and athletic capabilities can engage and enjoy the course. FlingGolf is bringing friends and families out to play together because it can be played alongside traditional golf, even in the same foursome!

“We’re excited to bring FlingGolf to the Mentor Short Course this season and look forward to attracting players. We have a variety of FlingSticks available for rental in our pro shop and will give beginners a few tips before they head out,” said Giff Breed, President and Owner. 

FlingGolf continues to grow in popularity on courses all over the world. Check out to learn more about the sport, learn some fling techniques, and shop for the latest FlingSticks.
