FlingGolf at SHGC
Fling Golf is a fun new sport that is gaining momentum across the U.S., putting a whole new twist on the game of Golf as we know it. While the basics of Golf still very much apply, Fling Golfers will substitute the usual 13 clubs with just one Fling Stick (along with a normal golf ball). Players will play each hole just as they would if they were playing traditional Golf, executing each shot with their Fling Stick and by using a variety of fling-techniques. On the putting greens, each "putt" is also played using the Fling Stick to push or 'sweep' the ball toward the hole. Fling Golf is a bit like combining Golf with game of Lacrosse, and while it's a fun sporting activity all it's own, it's also designed to help introduce new players to the golf course and the game of Golf itself!
If you haven't heard of Fling Golf before, we encourage you to visit their website at www.flinggolf.com to learn more about this fun new take on the game of Golf as we know it. And if you'd like to try it out before you book a tee time at Sagamore-Hampton Golf Club (SHGC), we strongly encourage you to 'fling' a bucket or two at our Sagamore Golf Center's Driving Range, to help become familiar with the technique.

Important Things All FootGolfers Must Know!
Knowing that traditional Golf has been the cornerstone of Sagamore-Hampton Golf Club for over 50 years now, we need to make sure there is a mutual respect & undertsanding between traditional Golfers and FootGolfers... We expect all FootGolfers to understand and respect the following:
- CLICK HERE to watch a quick video about FootGolf basics and rules (if you're new to the game, this is a must watch!)
- BE CONSIDERATE! We want our FootGolfers to have fun during their round, but we need them to understand that they are sharing the Golf Course with our traditional Golfers... That said, running and yelling is not encouraged, and we expect all FootGolfers to be considerate of others on the course. We ask parents please make sure children do not put themselves in harm's way and behave while on the course... And always make sure they are respectful of our Golfers and the Golf Course itself!
- TARGET TWO HOURS OR LESS! Your FootGolf round should be played in under two hours... Please be aware of your pace of play at all times
- GOLFERS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY! If the group playing directly behind your group is playing at a quicker pace, always allow them time to play through on the next tee (this is a common courtesy in Golf)
- PLAY SMART & SAFE! Make sure the group ahead of you is safely out of range before playing any shot... Play smart & safe!
- RESPECT THE GOLF COURSE! A Golf Course is a beautiful place to spend time, and requires alot of effort to keep it that way... We ask that all FootGolfers please stay clear of our Golf Course putting greens, sand bunkers and tee boxes
