Chena Bend Clubhouse and Golf Course now offers FlingGolf, a new, alternative way to enjoy our golf course, using a specially-designed FlingStick and a regulation golf ball. Instead of hitting the ball with a club, players use a single FlingStick to shape every shot from tee to hole.
FlingGolf can be played by any skill level and alongside regular golfers, so you won't feel left out of the action. With just one FlingStick, your all-in-one piece of equipment enables players to an up-tempo game of flinging the ball for distance and putting on the green.
FlingGolf FlingSticks are available for rent within the Chena Bend Pro Shop.
