It’s fun, inexpensive and easy to learn. Instead of hitting the ball with a club, a player flings a golf ball with FlingStick®. Use of stick is provided with paid round. A good fling can travel over 200 yards. For an entire round, all players need to carry is one light FlingStick®. For info, call 763-549-3750.
