FlingGolf ™ is a new action sport for golf courses developed by PlusOne Sports that meshes seamlessly with golf, using just one FlingStick ™ . It is played on a golf course, with a golf ball and even in the same foursome as golfers. Instead of striking a golf ball with a club, players use a single PlusOne FlingStick ™ to throw the ball down the course, starting at the tee and finishing at the hole. Players can shape their shots with ease, including drives, fades, draws, flop shots, and bump and runs, and use the FlingStick ™ to “glide” the ball into the hole. It is easy to learn, inexpensive to purchase and provides an excellent pace of play. www.flinggolf.com.

Jan Stephenson Winery – So many times, because of their higher price, “celebrity” wines are only affordable for special occasions. LPGA legend Jan Stephenson’s goal was to bring to the market a quality wine that could be affordable for daily consumption. Says Jan, “My hometown in Australia is called the Central Coast, and also home to the top food and wine region, the Hunter Valley. As I toured the Paso Robles area, the topography had so many similarities to my home country, that I instantly had a connection. It was only fitting that I chose the vineyards from the Central Coast of California for my wines. With over 500 acres of a fully sustainable vineyard, and the true loving care to the earth and its vines, made it the only choice for me.” www.jswinery.com.
The ING Conference’s presenting sponsor this year is Freedom Golf Association. FGA is a 501(C)(3) charitable organization dedicated to bringing joy and a sense of freedom to the special needs community through their inclusion in the game of golf.
