Pine Wood Country Club will add new form of golf
HARSHAW - Pinewood Golf Course in Harshaw will offer another type of golfing this spring and summer.

It's called fling golf.

You only need one stick to play the game.

Fling golf can be played on any golf course.

A solid fling can go over 200 yards!

Pinewood Golf Course owner Chip Bromann is excited to offer the new form of golf.

"It's a lot like swinging a baseball bat and so everybody done that before one time in their life so you don't need to be a skilled golfer to actually score well," Bromann said. "Once you learn on the range how to throw the ball with a fling stick, everybody can play this game."

Shots are easier to get on the fairway with the Fling.

Bromann hopes to get people who have never played golf at Pinewood like Mary Ann Doyle.

"I think it's really great that Chip is trying new things on the golf course because like I say I've been on this golf course before and I don't play golf," Harshaw's Mary Ann Doyla said. "It's a beautiful course to ride a golf cart on. There's streams and bridges and stuff, its perfect"
