PlusOne Sports Partners with Grand Coral Golf Riviera Maya in Mexico to Bring FlingGolf into New Markets

Innovative sport will spread to Mexico, Latin America and South
America

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PlusOne
Sports
announces the latest development in the spread of its
innovative new game, FlingGolf.
FlingGolf is continuing a meteoric yearlong rise by moving
internationally, today signing a new partnership with Grand
Coral Golf Riviera Maya
, to help make FlingGolf available to lovers
of outdoor fun in Mexico, Latin America, and South America.

FlingGolf — best described as a hybrid of golf and lacrosse — is played
on a golf course, with a golf ball, and is scored similar to golf.
Players use a FlingStick — a lightweight, carbon fiber stick with a high
tech cradle for the ball at the end — to launch a regulation golf ball
around a golf course. No modifications to the course are required, and
it’s so easy to learn that players can head out to the greens in less
than a half hour.

“This is a very exciting opportunity for us,” said PlusOne Sports CEO
and FlingGolf creator Alex Van Alen. “We’re thrilled at the reception
our more athletic, relaxed, and looser approach to golf has had in its
first year. With this partnership we will see more converts playing on
golf courses, which are looking for ways to drive new players to fill
empty tee times and increase their revenues. Grand Coral Golf Riviera
Maya will be the official FlingGolf hub for Mexico, Latin America and
South America, and will also help distribute our products in the region.”

Players play FlingGolf right alongside golfers, even in the same
foursome, which has made it very easy for courses to adopt. “Flinging is
relaxed, athletic and fun, so it’s drawing in those who are frustrated
with golf or were never really interested,” added Van Alen. “And parents
who golf can bring their kids out to play alongside them—it’s a great
way to get the whole family, or anyone who’s never played golf before,
out on the course with or without traditional golfers.”

“We see unlimited opportunity for courses across Mexico, Latin America
and South America with FlingGolf. This a great chance to get out in
front of what we agree will be a major new trend for courses
everywhere,” said Glenn Doyle, Director of Golf Operations, Grand
Coral Golf Riviera Maya
. “As a business, we will help develop the
next generation of leisure customers throughout this region, similar to
the way snowboarding impacted ski slopes —we’re just thrilled with this
partnership.”

The sport FlingGolf was created by Boston-based PlusOne Sports, LLC, a
privately held firm that designed and manufactures the high performance
FlingStick in Massachusetts. FlingGolf is now played at hundreds of
courses across the USA, Europe, Canada, New Zealand and now
Mexico. PlusOne Sports sells FlingSticks and FlingGolf accessories and
apparel online and through a growing retail partner network in North
America and Europe. For more information about FlingGolf, visit the
