PlusOne Sports announced today that it has recognized Woodstone Meadows Golf Course in McGaheysville, Virginia as the 2016 FlingGolf Course of the Year. FlingGolf is the energetic new sport now played on hundreds of golf courses across the USA, Canada and internationally. WoodStone Meadows Golf Course is a part of the family-friendly Massanutten Resort.
Alex Van Alen, Founder of PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf, stated, "Brett Mowbray, the PGA Pro and Director for Golf Operations at Massanutten Resort, has developed a program at Woodstone Meadows that has become the example for other courses and resorts to emulate. He has recognized the fun, family-friendly character that FlingGolf brings to golf courses and has made it easy for new players to enjoy the beauty and challenges of the course. It is a testament to Brett's vision as well as Massanutten's dedication to the enjoyment of their guests that they saw over 1600 rounds of FlingGolf played in 2016 and have seen well over 3000 rounds played since first introducing the sport.
"It has been a lot of fun seeing FlingGolf grow here," stated Mowbray. "Because the sport can be played at the same time as golfers, we've seen family reunions get out on the course, with half playing golf and the other half playing FlingGolf, and all of them having fun. In the summer, we hosted a camp of 130 kids playing FlingGolf in addition to several corporate outings and local college teams. It has been so easy to implement FlingGolf – we didn't need to make any changes to our course and our staff has really enjoyed teaching new players. It has been a great addition and it is an honor to be named the FlingGolf course of the year."
PlusOne Sports is the creator of FlingGolf and the patented FlingStick, and promotes and governs the sport. FlingGolf is played with a golf ball on a golf course, using only a single FlingStick to hurl the ball and shape every shot from tee to hole. Golf course owners don't need to make any changes to their courses, and much like snowboarding to skiing, the sport can be played in the same foursome as golfers. PlusOne Sports/FlingGolf is based in Ipswich, MA. For more information, visit the company's website at www.flinggolf.com.
